MSU Men's Soccer to play Colorado Mesa in NCAA Playoffs

Midwestern State makes its return to the NCAA Division II postseason for the eighth time in the last nine seasons this weekend when the Mustangs take on Colorado Mesa in Grand Junction.
 
The Mustangs and Mavericks are slated for a 2 p.m. (Central Time) kickoff time Sunday at Walker Field.

MSU makes its 10th overall playoff appearance which includes five national quarterfinalist showings advancing to the Final Four in 2007 and 2010.
 
MSU (13-3-2) rolls into the postseason clinching its 16th consecutive 10-win season and is 7-2-1 over its last 10 matches. The Mustangs rolled to a pair of crucial road wins over West Texas A&M and Eastern New Mexico to seal the playoff bid.

Colorado Mesa clinches its first NCAA postseason appearance after rolling to a 15-3-1 record clinching its first Rocky Mountain Athletic Conference championship. The Mavericks had their 12-match winning streak snapped with a 4-1 loss to Regis last weekend in the RMAC Postseason Tournament semifinals.

Midwestern State claimed a 2-1 win in double overtime at Colorado Mesa earlier this season in Grand Junction.
 
The winner moves on to face top-seeded St. Edward's (Texas) next weekend at the highest remaing seed in the West Region.
 
Seattle Pacific (Wash.) (15-1-1) hosts one sub-regional as the Falcons will face the winner of Northwest Nazarene (Wash.) (14-3-1) and Simon Fraser (B.C.) (11-4-2), while Azusa Pacific (Calif.) (14-2-0) hosts the other sub-regional welcoming Calfornia State, Los Angeles (13-3-1) and California, San Diego (9-4-5).
 
The winners of the subregionals also play at the site of the highest remaining seed in the West regaionals as well as St. Edward's against the MSU/CMU winner next weekend with the regional champs battling in the national quarterfinal round for the right to advance to the Final Four set to played in Louisville, Ky. from Dec. 4-6.
