It’s going to be a busy weekend of soccer at Adelphi as the women’s and men’s teams will host matches in the first and second rounds of NCAA Division II tournaments.
In the women’s tournament, the Panthers received a first-round bye following the 2017 season in which the team finished 15-3 and won the Northeast-10 Conference for the third consecutive year. On Sunday at 2 p.m., Adelphi will face the winner of the opening round match between LIU Post and Franklin Pierce, who play Friday at 2 p.m.
Should the Panthers win on Sunday, they will be granted hosting rights for the third round contest against the winner of one of three teams on the other side of the bracket – Mercy, SNHU and Georgian Court. The winner of the East Region will also host the winner of the Atlantic Region in the national quarterfinals, as per the alternating policy set for by the NCAA.
The NCAA Division II Women’s Soccer Championship weekend will be hosted in Swope Park in Kansas City, Mo., with the national semifinals and final scheduled for the weekend of Nov. 30-Dec. 2.
On the men’s side, Adelphi earned the second seed in the East Region and hosting rights for first and second round action.

Also earning bids were the NE10 champions, Merrimack (No. 3) and the CACC champions Goldey-Beacom (No. 6), while So. Connecticut State and University of the District of Columbia earned at-large bids.
The first round game between Merrimack and Goldey-Beacom will take place on Thursday, Nov. 9, at 7 p.m., and the Panthers will face the winner of that contest on Saturday, Nov. 11, at 7 p.m.
