SRU hosts PSAC soccer playoffs Tuesday

The Rock men's and women's soccer teams will both host quarterfinal games of the Pennsylvania State Athletic Conference Championships at Mihalik-Thompson Stadium Tuesday afternoon.

The men's team hosts Shippensburg at 3 p.m. The women’s team hosts Gannon at 5:30 p.m.

There is no admission charge for students of PSAC-member institutions. Adult tickets are $7 and non-PSAC student tickets are $2.

The Rock men finished the regular season with a 12-3-2 overall record and a 7-3-1 mark in PSAC. SRU is the No. 4 seed in the tournament. Shippensburg is the No. 5 seed.

The Rock women finished the regular season with a 13-2-2 overall record and were 12-2-2 in conference action. SRU is the No. 2 seed in the tournament. Gannon is No. 7.

The winners of Tuesday's matches advance to semifinal games Friday. A win by The Rock women, coupled with a loss Tuesday by top-seeded California University of Pennsylvania would earn SRU the right to host the semifinal games. The Rock men, with a win Tuesday, would go on the road for their semifinal game.

The SRU Sports Information Office will provide live statistical updates, Twitter updates and audio broadcasts of both games Tuesday via easy-to-find links on The Rock athletic website, http://www.rockathletics.com. Stories previewing Tuesday's games will be available today at the same site.
