WASHINGTON- The CUA men's soccer team will match up against Wesley College on November 12th for a chance at the Eastern Collegiate Athletic Conference championship. The third seeded Cardinals (12-7) will face sixth seeded Wolverines (11-7-3) in the ECAC quarterfinal game scheduled for 2:00.

CUA returns to the field after falling to Susquehanna 1-0 in the Landmark Conference championships last Saturday. The Cardinals have experienced one of their most successful seasons in school history, breaking the 11 win record set in 1990 and 1999 and advancing to the conference championship.

Wesley defeated St. Mary's  (Md.) and York College in the CAC before falling to Salisbury in the finals. The Wolverines have been led by sophomore midfielder Mike Thomas, recording six goals and one assist this season.

This will be the second match-up between CUA and Wesley this year. Previously, the Cards defeated the Wolverines 3-2 on the road.
