Furman Men’s Soccer To Host Mercer In Sunday SoCon Semifinal
Greenville, S.C. – The Furman men’s soccer team begins its quest for a Southern Conference Tournament championship and NCAA Tournament berth when the top-seeded Paladins host No. 4 seed Mercer in semifinal round action Sunday at 1 p.m. on Seagraves Field at Stone Stadium.
The Paladins, 11-6-1 overall and 5-1-0 in SoCon play this season, clinched the No. 1 seed and SoCon regular season title with a 2-1 victory over Belmont at Stone Stadium in the regular season finale on November 2. The regular season title marked the 20th in school history and first since 2010 for Furman. Mercer (12-6-0) defeated No. 5 seed Wofford, 3-0, at Stone Stadium on Friday afternoon to earn its spot in the semifinals.
Sunday’s match marks the 17th meeting between Furman and Mercer with the Bears holding an 8-5-3 series lead. Mercer claimed a 4-3 come-from-behind victory versus the Paladins in overtime on October 26, in Macon, Ga.
Tickets for Sunday’s match are $5 and can be purchased online at FurmanPaladins.com or at the Stone Stadium entrance beginning one hour prior to kickoff. Students with a valid ID from a SoCon school receive free admission. The match will be streamed live on the SoCon Digital Network.
With a victory on Sunday, Furman would advance to host the SoCon Championship Match on Saturday, November 16, at Stone Stadium.

hot momma: Good or bad? My daughter was told by an ECNL club that she would be placed on the U19 Composite team but she would likely get some play time on the top U19 team.

futbalatl: What is wrong with people ranking and comparing 08 girls teams? This is insane.

Futsal Gawdess: How bored/meaningless is your life that u dedicate time assessing, comparing & rating 11/12 year old girls, especially considering they move from 9v9 to 11v11 so all commentary is conjecture at best. In 6-8 months, the results will say it all 🙄

Futsal Gawdess: While we're at it, ranking the ECNL boys teams is also a fool's errand 🙄

Hb 33: Hey. just wondering if anyone has a different impression of Josh Hurst. It looks like he will coach my daughter's team this upcoming season and some of the comments about him are not encouraging.

To Hb 33: If she's a top player don't worry. If she's not and needs developing, sorry.
