Cal Women's Soccer Announces 2020-21 Spring Schedule

Jan 25, 2021

SAN FRANCISCO – Cal women's soccer is set to begin its 2020-21 Pac-12 slate on Friday, Feb. 26 at Oregon State, the first of a two-match opening weekend in Oregon. 

The Pac-12 Conference announced its season schedule for women's soccer on Monday, which consists of Conference-only matches to take place this spring. 

California is scheduled to play the standard 11-match conference slate and two non-conference games against Pac-12 competitors. There is an additional non-league rivalry matchup the weekend of March 19-20. The season is set to take place over a seven week period, with Cal's home opener set for Friday, Mar. 5 against Colorado. The Bears conclude their season at home with a conference matchup against Stanford on Friday, April 16.  

Start times have been announced for all matchups and there will be no televised soccer matches in February. Non-televised games will be streamed via CalBears.com in February. The remaining start times and broadcasts will be announced at a later date. All soccer games will be conducted in accordance with the Pac-12 COVID-19 Medical Advisory Committee health and safety recommendations and guidelines available at Pac-12.com/health.

The winningest coach in program history, head coach Neil McGuire is entering his 14th season in Berkeley. Cal also welcomes back a plethora of talent, including 19 returners from last season's NCAA Tournament squad. 

The reigning National Freshman of the Year, goalkeeper Angelina Anderson, returns as a tri-captain for the Bears alongside Emily Smith and Emma Westin. A defender and 2019 All-American selection, Smith enters her senior season after being drafted by Racing Louisville FC in the 2021 NWSL Draft. Westin, a native of Sweden and midfielder for Cal, returns after helping the Hammarby Football Team clinch second place in the Elitettan Swedish women's soccer league. 

In addition to the 19 returners, California welcomes 11 new faces to the 2020-21 roster. Sophomore forward Keely Roy joins the Golden Bears after competing with the USF Dons last season. She joins 10 Bears from the 2020 recruiting class: Abby Borchers (F), Amaya Gray (F), Anysa Gray (F), Cami Cassinelli (D), Hannah Cooper (F), Julia Gonsman (D), Lily Shea (D), Maya Evans (D), Rilee Harmon (M), and Skylar Briggs (D).
