UNCW men’s soccer trying to make a splash in the NCAA field


WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY)–It was not the end to the season that UNCW Men’s soccer wanted as they fell in the CAA Semi-Finals. That didn’t stop the Seahawks from getting into the NCAA tournament field, that was released on Monday afternoon.

The season will continue for UNCW as they are set to host Furman in the first round of the NCAA tournament. The Paladins are coming off a Southern Conference tournament title as they took down UNCG, 3-0.

“It was a tough way to lose the game the other night and now they get another shot to keep playing. Were just excited to be in the big dance to get a shot at competing for a National Championship,”said UNCW head coach Aidan Heaney.

UNCW and Furman are set to start at 7:00 P.M. on Thursday night at the UNCW Soccer Stadium.
