NCAA Semifinals

The 1984 Lions opened up with a four-game run that saw TSC outscore its opponents 34-1. An overtime win put a scare in the season, but the Lions answered with a five-game shutout streak while scoring 29 goals. Another three-game sweep at the Virginia Tech tournament kept the winning streak alive, and there the Lions started an eight-game shutout streak, outscoring opponents 35-0. A tie against Division II Kutztown stopped the win streak, but TSC remained undefeated. The Lions won a pair to advance to the semifinals, but a 2-1 loss to also undefeated Bloomsburg, the eventual NCAA champion, ended the season. Diane Smith earned her fourth consecutive All-American honor, and Suzanne Gallo also was so recognized. The Lions were the first team to score over 120 goals in the NCAA era and they were the first team to average more than five goals a game.
