The opening round of the 2020-21 NCAA Division I Women’s Soccer Championship is complete as 16 teams advanced to the second round.

On Wednesday, April 28, the eight teams to move on were Arizona State, Milwaukee, Rice, Utah Valley, South Carolina, Penn State, Virginia and Ohio State. Utah Valley’s win was notable in particular as the Wolverines picked up the program’s first-ever NCAA tournament victory in a 1-0 decision against Memphis.

Here’s how every match went down on Wednesday:

  • Arizona State def. Siena 4-0
  • Milwaukee def. Elon 1-0
  • Rice def. Furman 3-1
  • Utah Valley def. Memphis 1-0
  • South Carolina def. Montana 1-0
  • Penn State def. Alabama State 5-0
  • Virginia def. SIU-Edwardsville 3-1
  • Ohio State def. Stony Brook 5-1

No problem for Penn State on Wednesday, as they cruised past Alabama State, 5-0, to advance.

The 16 seeded teams await in the second round, which begins on Friday, April 30.
