Anderson Tops Field For 2011 Food Lion SAC Soccer Championship Men's Bracket, LMU To Host Carson-Newman

Courtesy of the South Atlantic Conference

ROCK HILL, S.C. – With the men’s soccer regular season concluding on Sunday, the bracket has been set for the 2011 Food Lion SAC Soccer Championship. The Railsplitter soccer team will host Carson-Newman Tuesday at 2 p.m. on the LMU Soccer Field.

Quarterfinal matches will be played on Tuesday on the campuses of the four highest seeds, with semifinals and the championship match then taking place at Manchester Meadows in Rock Hill, S.C. on Nov. 4 and 6.  

Defending SAC Tournament champion Anderson enters the event as the No. 1 seed.  The Trojans completed a perfect 9-0 conference season on Saturday by defeating Wingate, 4-2.

AU was ranked sixth nationally in last week’s NSCAA Top 25 and No. 2 in the Southeast Region by the NCAA Division II Soccer Committee.

Earning the Championship’s No. 2 seed is Tusculum, which finished 6-1-2 in the SAC and was ranked No. 8 in the latest NCAA Southeast Region poll.
2010 SAC Championship runner-up Mars Hill – ranked fourth in the NCAA Southeast Region -- is seeded third at this year’s event, followed by No. 4 Lincoln Memorial and No. 5 Carson-Newman.

It will be the second time this season that the two teams have met, with LMU taking a 3-0 win in Jefferson City on Sept. 28. LMU leads the all-time series vs. C-N 13-10-2 and have won both times the two have met in the postseason.

Catawba and Lenoir-Rhyne both finished the regular season with a 3-4-2 record in conference play, necessitating the use of tiebreak formulas to determine the Championship’s No. 6 and No. 7 seeds.

The head-to-head component was thrown out because Catawba and L-R tied in their only regular-season contest.  The next criterion is record against the bracket’s higher seeds.  Both teams lost to Anderson, Tusculum, Mars Hill and LMU, but Catawba defeated Carson-Newman and L-R lost to the Eagles, making the Indians the bracket’s No. 6 seed and the Bears the No. 7.

Rounding out the Championship field is eighth-seeded Wingate. 

Due to SAC requirements there will be an admission charge to the match. For prices and other information, please contact the LMU Athletic Department at 423.869.6285.
