Northeastern A&M’s men have qualified for the Region 2 Soccer Championship as the No. 3 seed.
The Golden Norsemen qualified following a 0-0 double-overtime tie with Rich Mountain Community College Tuesday, Oct. 29.
NEO faces No. 2 seed Rose State at 2:30 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 2 at Enid.
Murray State and Rich Mountain will play in the noon game.
The championship game will be at 1 p.m. Sunday.
“There was a lot of good buildup and chances,” Norse coach John Parrigon said of Tuesday’s match in Mena, Arkansas, which had been postponed from Oct. 6 due to weather.
“We had a handful of chances,” he said. “I would say the good chances were equal on both sides.”
Rich Mountain topped the Norsemen 2-1 in Miami on Sept. 19.
