Why did MSOE have to forfeit?



MSOE had to forfeit the final 3 games for using an ineligible player. The player in question was not a full-time student.

Statement from Brian Miller, Director of Athletics:

"Our women's soccer team fielded a player that was not a full-time student for the final three games of the season, including its two NACC Tournament matches. Since the information was brought to light, we have worked with the NACC office to rectify the situation which, unfortunately, involves the forfeiture of matches and the conclusion of the season.

"While we take full responsibility for this incident as a department, I would like to commend head coach Rolf Zersen for his swift actions when the circumstances came to light. He approached a difficult decision with the ethical certainty that makes him such an effective role model for our student-athletes. I would also like to share my admiration for our women's soccer team, which handled the news and fallout with dignity and grace."

Don’t pick a fight with an old man. If he is too old to fight, he’ll just kill you.

Williams seems to have the easiest path to Greensboro.  A bit of a gift to an at large team but they are the defending champs.  Wash U. has a tougher road but I expect they will be there.  The Midd. and Messiah pods seem much tougher.  I wouldn't be surprised to see CNU  and Hopkins (did they really lose 1-5 to Swat) show up as well.  It should be interesting.

Well, Williams doesn't have an easier path because they are defending champs. That isn't how it works.

Geography and such has more of an affect. Sometimes it is impossible to keep good teams from running into each other while the committee has more options in places like the Northeast where there are more teams and options in a tighter area.

Amazing weekend for the UAA and then Wash U plays Chicago next weekend.  It is hard to imagine that there won't be at least two UAA teams in Greensboro.

Agree 100% but totally surprised CWRU didn't make the tournament. They can compete with the best. Their dynasty had to end at some point.

I'm assuming you mean Carnegie Mellon? Case hasn't had a winning season since 2014. If there's been a UAA dynasty, it's definitely WashU whose dominated in recent years.

I have only seen them play once this season, but Carnegie Mellon looked so much better than a .500 team.

upset of the 1st Round had to be Grove City over Chicago. Bad day for the UAA going 2-4 with the only wins being Wash U thrashing overmatched local opponent Westminster and Emory needing a golden goal to beat Penn State Berks of the lowly NEAC.

Wow, Chicago had a 29-6 advantage on shots, a 14-4 advantage on shots on goal, a 2-13 advantage on saves and a 11-0 advantage on corner kicks.  Hearbreaking for sure.

Certainly a tough weekend for the UAA with only Wash U making it through.  The Chicago game is hard to figure but I think the "heartbreak/gut punch" of the weekend has to go to Hopkins, losing to Les Mis with 67 seconds left in regulation.  Great job by Les Mis but ...ouch.

Welcoming the next round(Williams, Amherst, TCNJ and William Smith) of NCAAs to the rain and snow of Geneva this weekend.  I am not sure if William Smith is in the NCAAs or the NESCAC tournament after the Tufts game??  Good luck to all, the winner gets to play in balmy North Carolina.

It’s going to be another brutal weather weekend for pretty much everyone, especially those in Midds and Geneva.  Looks like everyone will avoid the snow however.  St Louis expected 3-5 inches today but clearing for tomorrow evenings games.

It will be a tall order for the young Wheaton team to get past Centre.  Recently, the Thunder have been slightly challenged in scoring against the tougher teams - concerning given the Colonels have only given up 4 goals all year and not in the last 2 months.  I'm hoping Wheaton can score first, then who knows?

Good luck to all the teams and travel safe.

Francis Field at WashU was covered with a thick blanket of snow Thursday morning...but, an all-hands-on-deck snow-clearing day for the WashU Department of Athletics removed the snow after five hours.  No worries for the Friday afternoon/evening Sweet 16 doubleheader at 5:00 & 7:30.

WashU vs. Wisconsin-LaCrosse at 5:00 CST Friday
Centre vs. Wheaton at 7:30

Because CWRU is a sub .500 team
