Southern Illinois University Edwardsville men's soccer will face Wisconsin-Parkside in the second round of the NCAA Division II Tournament on Saturday night at Ralph Korte Stadium. Game time is set for 7.
The Rangers advanced after defeating Lewis 3-1 in penalty kicks on Thursday afternoon at a rain soaked Francis Field on the campus of Washington (Mo.) University. The game was tied 0-0.
SIUE, 16-2-2 overall, is 1-0 this season against third-seeded Wisconsin-Parkside, 13-3-3. SIUE defeated UWP 2-0 on the road on October 1.
This is the first time SIUE has played a home NCAA contest in the second round since 2001 when it defeated Ashland 1-0 en route to a Final Four appearance. It is also the first time SIUE has played GLVC rival Wisconsin-Parkside in the NCAA Tournament.
