Watch: Rutgers set for the final four, heading to the NCAA College Cup




 

Rutgers women's soccer is through to the final four of the NCAA Tournament, outlasting Arkansas on Friday night on penalty kicks.

It has been a banner season for the women's program, who won the Big Ten regular season title and earned a No. 1 seed in the NCAA Tournament. The Scarlet Knights have now won consecutive penalty kick shootouts to advance to the final four teams in the tournament.

Last Sunday, Rutgers outlasted TCU in eight rounds of a shootout in the Sweet 16, winning 5-4 to advance to Friday's Elite Eight match with Arkansas.

First half goals by freshman Riley Tiernan and senior forward Amirah Ali were the bookend to two Arkansas goals in the first half.

Rutgers booked a ticket to the NCAA College Cup for the first time since 2014. They will play Florida State for the right to advance to the championship game.

The Scarlet Knights are now 19-3-2 on the season and 13-2-2 at home.
