4. Rules Committee Meeting Recap

by Greg Johnson, NCAA

"The NCAA Men's and Women's Soccer Rules Committee during a virtual meeting last week proposed changes to overtime rules for both the regular season and the postseason, effective for the 2022 season.

For the regular season, committee members proposed eliminating overtime periods, meaning the game would end in a tie. Currently, teams play two 10-minute overtime periods in a sudden-victory (golden goal) format, and if neither team scores, the game is a tie. 

In the conference tournament and NCAA postseason games, the committee recommended eliminating the sudden-victory component and, instead, having the teams play two 10-minute overtime periods. Also, when a substitution is made by the winning team in the last five minutes of the second overtime, the game clock would stop.

If the game remains tied, a penalty-kick shootout would be held to determine the winner."

>> Remember: "All rules changes must be approved by the NCAA Playing Rules Oversight Panel, which is scheduled to discuss soccer rules recommendations April 20."

5.  Lightning Round 

  Salisbury retained the top spot in the latest IWLCA poll after a thrilling win against No. 5 Washington and Lee. Middlebury moved into the top 10.

  The NCAA is changing its cannabinoid testing policies. The NCAA Committee on Competitive Safeguards and Medical Aspects of Sports aligned with THC threshold levels established by the World Anti-Doping Agency, raising the threshold for student-athletes from 35 to 150 nanograms per milliliter. The threshold adjustment is effective immediately and applicable to drug tests administered in fall 2021 or later.
