A Big Soccer Game At Loyola College

November 24, 2008 |

Tomorrow night at 6pm Loyola hosts UNC Greensboro in a second round NCAA Mens Soccer Tournament game at Geppy-Aikens Field. Loyola is seeded ninth in the tournament after posting a 17-0-1 regular season record and losing 1-0 to Fairfield in the MAAC Championship game. The Greyhounds received a first round bye and will host a NCAA game for the second straight season

UNC Greensboro is a complete surprise to be in this game. The Spartans finished the regular season with a below .500 record and finished seventh in the Southern Conference. UNCG became the lowest ever seed to win the conference tournament and also the 5th team to enter the tournament with a losing record at 9-11-2. The Spartans traveled to Duke on Friday night in the first round. Thanks to a goal in each half UNCG beat Duke 2-0 to advance to tomorrow nights match.

If you are planning on attending the game be sure to dress warmly. They are calling for temps in the 30’s for this rare evening game at Loyola.
