Another day; another tie

Another day; another tie


The outcome was predictable. CUW and Edgewood hammered at each other for 110 minutes of Fitting Field highlight reel, but a combination of staunch goal posts and great saves led to a 0-0 tie in the NAC regular season finale.

Edgewood had an open shot careen off the sidebar in the first half and CUW smacked a near miss off the top post and straight down in the second half. Goalies Shane Sullivan of Edgewood and Tom Anderson of Concordia each had several outstanding saves in the late going. All of that made for an exciting two hours but a third conference tie was not good news for Tom Saleska and company.

Although the Falcons had only one loss in 2009 regular season conference action, they get just a 4th seed in the tournament because wins count for three points each in NAC soccer and ties for just one point in the standings. With three ties to go along with their seven league wins the Falcons tallied 24 points- behind MSOE and Edgewood. Not surprisingly, CUW played both of those teams to scoreless ties.

MSOE still has a makeup match remaining with Lakeland but already has 25 points and owns a head-head win over Edgewood so they get the #2 seed behind undefeated Nationally-Ranked Dominican.

Only the top 6 teams make the playoffs with the #1 and #2 seeds receiving byes. The Falcons (11-3-4 overall) will host Aurora in the first round of the playoffs on Sunday with the match tentatively scheduled to start at 1:00pm.
