Filed under: Sports |

The pairings have been released for the NCCAA Regional Tournaments, with the Dallas Baptist Men’s Soccer Team headed to the Central Region Tournament, being played at Mid-America Christian University in Oklahoma City, Okla.

Action begins Thursday, Nov. 15, as three seed-Central Christian College takes on six seed-Central Baptist College. The Patriots will follow with the second game, taking on new Heartland Conference member, McMurry University.

The Patriots and War Hawks faced off twice in 2012, with McMurry narrowly winning both contests. The War Hawks won a 2-1 contest in double overtime in Dallas, Sept. 20, and edged the Patriots, 1-0, Oct. 18 in Abilene.

The winner of that game will advance to the semifinals, Friday, against top-seeded Mid-America Christian University. The winner of game one will take on Southwest Christian University in the other semifinal. The championship will be played Saturday. Games times for all three days are yet to be announced.

The Patriots, in their first year since reinstating the program, enter the tournament at 4-12-1. McMurry finished the regular season with a 7-11-0 record.
