The 2014 MIAA Regular Season and Tournament champion Jennies soccer team (19-0-2) earned the No. 2 seed, a first round bye and the right to host one half of the NCAA’s Central Regional as announced by the NCAA on Monday night. The Jennies will play the winner of third-seeded Augustana (S.D.) and sixth-seeded Central Oklahoma on Sunday, Nov. 16 at noon at Jennies Field at the South Recreation Complex. Augustana and UCO will play on Friday afternoon at 1 p.m. at South Rec.
The Jennies defeated Augustana 2-0 in the season opener in Warrensburg back on Sept. 5. The Jennies went 1-0-1 against Central Oklahoma this season, beating the Bronchos 1-0 in Edmond on Oct. 17 and then beating them in a shootout, 4-3, in the MIAA Tournament Semifinals after the game ended in a 0-0 tie.
The other half of the Central Regional features No. 1 seed Minnesota State hosting fourth-seeded Southwest Baptist and fifth-seeded Winona State in Mankato, Minnesota.
