The Fish Blog: Lobos Host Virginia In NCAA 2nd Round
Nov. 16, 2012
AN IMPORTANT MESSAGE FROM COACH FISHBEIN
University of New Mexico Men's Soccer is playing in the NCAA Tournament for the 10th time in the past 12 years. With a 16-3-1 regular season record, the Lobos received the #13 seed in the 48 team bracket. With a "Top 16" seed, we secured the all-important first round bye and second-round home match.
The Lobos play Virginia, the winner of Thursday's contest between them and Lafayette College, Sunday night, November 18 at 7 p.m. The Cavaliers are a perennial power out of the ACC, and it will be a hard-fought match on Sunday.
Tickets can be purchased on-line or at the Lobo Ticket Office in the Northeast corner of The Pit on Friday the 16th from 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m.
Last year's second round home match was a sellout and over 2000 people were turned away at the gate. We anticipate Sunday's match to be a full house and advise the Lobo Faithful to purchase your tickets early and arrive at the stadium 40 minutes prior to kickoff, ensuring good seats.
Per NCAA rules, the game will kick off at 7:00 pm sharp! I know a lot of people are tailgating prior to the game. Lets make it an ELECTRIC NIGHT!
Our team is energized by the Lobo Faithful! The boys are focussed, healthy and excited to play!
Thanks for your incredible support and see you Sunday night at 7:00 p.m.
