Game ends tied at 1-1.  Heading to PKs to decide who plays Williams.

Cal Lutheran advances, 5-4 on PKs, to play Williams in the round of 16.

Update-- corrected line by box score result.  The video feed incorrectly said 6-5, but my own count said 5-4.  I was wondering as I was watching the video stream last night where I missed a round of PKs, but the feed was incorrect.  Really late night staying up watching that game.

NCAA will release their sectional hosts on the women's side this morning.

The NCAA, through their official printable bracket, has announced that North Park, Chicago, Messiah, and Tufts will be hosting men's sectionals next weekend.

Based on this information, my projected women's sectional hosts are:

TCNJ, UW- La Crosse, William Smith, and Williams.

Update--

NCAA has picked Chicago, TCNJ, William Smith and Williams to host women's sectionals this upcoming weekend.

Chicago will probably host the men's sectionals on Friday and Saturday afternoon, while the Chicago women's sectional will probably be on Friday and Saturday evening-- in accordance with the priority rules set for this weekend.

Chicago's successful hosting of both men's and women's pods over the weekend probably gave the NCAA confidence that Chicago could pull off hosting both men's and women's sectionals this weekend as well. 

The Wheaton IL women and the Calvin men do not play on Sundays for religious reasons, therefore both Chicago sectionals must be played this upcoming Friday and Saturday.

Friday will be a busy soccer day in Chicago.  Have the men and women played sectionals at the same site before?  Maybe at Messiah but I am not sure.  I think Chicago has a good shot at bringing home both the men's and women's trophies.  Again, I am not sure but I think only Messiah has done that in the past.  It should be an exciting weekend everywhere.

It will indeed be a great soccer weekend in Chicago. North Park hosts, and Chicago hosts the women (early matches), and the men (late matches).

I doubt that this has ever happened in NCAA soccer history; three sectionals within 20 miles of each other.

Any upset predictions for today or Saturday?

My pick is the 1.5 goal underdog Lynchburg over undefeated TCNJ.

Absolutely miserable conditions in Chicago as far as I can tell.  45 degrees, 10-15 mph winds and raining.

Chicago defeated Wheaton 2-0.  No surprise there.

UW-Lax just scored on Washington University to go up 1-0 early in the second half.

UW-Lax scored an insurance goal with 10 minutes left.  Washington University responded with a long distance strike by Hannah Menard.  Lax leads 2-1 with 9 minutes left. #miracleneeded

Congratulations to the University of Wisconsin-La Crosse on the 2-1 win.

Washington University had the better of the play as far as I can tell (watched intermittently), but such is soccer.

Chicago defeated Wheaton 2-0.  No surprise there.


In looking at the  box of Chicago vs Wheaton, it seems that the Maroons didn't have a lot of problems dispatching Wheaton. What surprised me most about the game was the shot count. Wheaton only had 1 shot the entire game. Chicago had 15 shots with 6 on frame. I thought that Wheaton would give Chicago a bit more of a challenge. The 15 shots that Chicago had, while a lot, might be a little on the low side for them, though. I'm wondering why Wheaton's stud frosh forward Isabelle Oliver, the CCIW newcomer of the year, didn't play. Anyone? I don't think her presence would have changed the outcome of the game but Wheaton may have had a few more shots and possibly even put 1 on the scoreboard. She is a difference maker.

Chicago taking it to UW-LaCrosse today.

In the American Regional today, Ohio Northern beat William Smith, 1-0, in OT. The OT period was only 23 seconds in. Some may view this as a big surprise but ONU has a solid side. Last week in ONU's 2-0 win over Illinois Wesleyan, they out-shot the Titans, 19-6. That is pretty impressive given IWU's stout defense. IWU did have a few season-ending injuries but that is still impressive.
