UMM to play Loras in NCAA men's soccer

The University of Minnesota, Morris men's soccer team is headed to the NCAA Tournament after winning the UMAC Championship.

After advancing to their first NCAA Tournament with their win in the Upper Midwest Athletic Conference (UMAC) Championship on Saturday, the University of Minnesota, Morris men's soccer team learned today that they will face off with Loras College in the first round.

The Iowa Intercollegiate Athletic Conference (IIAC) tournament champions and regular-season runner-up, Loras will be the first round host to Morris, with the two teams kicking off first-round play on Nov. 11 in Dubuque, Iowa. Carthage and Calvin are also playing in the other half of the pod. Gametimes on Nov. 11 are still to be determined.

The Duhawks enter with a 16-2-3 record on the season, while the Cougars counter with an 11-4-4 mark. Loras advanced to the third round of the 2010 NCAA tournament, before falling to eventual national semifinalist UW-Oshkosh.

On the other end of the spectrum the Cougars are playing in their first NCAA Tournament, in just the sixth year of the program.
