Cardinals to take on Ohio Wesleyan in NCAA Tournament

WASHINGTON – The CUA men's soccer team learned its NCAA Tournament fate on Monday afternoon.  The Cardinals will head to York, Pa., on Saturday, November 13 to take on North Coast Athletic Conference champion Ohio Wesleyan.  Also joining the Cardinals and Bishops will be the host school York as well as Kenyon.

CUA and Ohio Wesleyan have never met in men's soccer.  The Cardinals face a tall task in taking on the Bishops, as the school from Delaware, Ohio comes into this weekend with a record of 16-1-2.  This will be Ohio Wesleyan's NCAA record 33rd Division III playoff appearance.

The Cardinals are making their second straight NCAA appearance after defeating Merchant Marine Academy in a shootout over the weekend.  CUA will be looking for its first-ever NCAA Tournament win.

The winners of Saturday's two matches will meet on Sunday, the 14th.  Game times for Saturday will be announced on Tuesday.
