UMBC Mens Soccer will open up their 2013 NCAA tournament play in second round action Sunday 11/24/2013 @ Retriever Soccer Park 5 pm. Many Bays Alumni will be in action for the Retrievers! Come out and show your support for our hometown team!!!
The Retrievers earned an automatic berth by winning the American East Title, and with a 16-1-2 record, boasted the best winning percentage in the country. They received a first-round bye and will host perennial power Connecticut or Quinnipiac on Sunday afternoon. UMBC last week was No. 6 in both the coaches’ poll and the RPI (where strength of schedule is factored) and won both games in its conference tournament. Looking down the road, the Retrievers would have to face No. 1 seed UCLA in Los Angeles in the round of 16 if they can secure the win this Sunday.
