After beating up on Washington State this past weekend, Central Men’s Soccer will head to Pullman to partake in the NCCSC Tournament. Central will enter as the favorite this weekend due to their stellar record of 6-1-1 totaling 19 points. WSU cannot be counted out being that they are the only team to beat CWU this season. WSU is also the defending champions.
The tournament will begin with Eastern Washington, the 5 seed, taking on the 4th seeded Vandals of Idaho at 11 am on Saturday. Idaho and Eastern split the season series, with Eastern taking the most recent of the two matches.
The 2 pm game will see the host Cougars take on the Bulldogs of Gonzaga in the 2 vs 3 match-up. WSU and Gonzaga only played one match this year due to scheduling conflicts. Both teams are very good and depending on who shows up, the match could go either way.
The night cap will pit the number 1 seed Wildcats against the winner of the 11 am game. The Wildcats will look to take the conference tournament title after losing in OT last year in the championship match.
The consolation final will be at 10 am on Sunday, with the championship following at 1 pm.
