West Virginia men’s soccer earned the No. 3 seed in the Sun Belt Tournament as they finished third in the conference.
A win on Tuesday night over Old Dominion secured the third place finish for the Mountaineers, with a 5-1-3 conference record, and 18 points to finish third in the table. UCF finished second with a 6-2-1 record and 19 points, while Marshall grabbed the top spot with a 7-2 conference record and 21 points.
Finishing third means WVU misses out on being one of the two host schools for the conference tournament. The top two seeds host the quarterfinals and semifinals.
This means No. 3 West Virginia will play No. 6 Georgia State in the quarterfinals and the game will be played on the road in Orlando at UCF. The winner of the game will play the winner of No. 2 UCF and No. 7 South Carolina in the semifinals. The winner of that game will advance to the Sun Belt Tournament Championship with an automatic bid to the NCAA Tournament on the line.
West Virginia beat Georgia State 4-3 on Sept. 30 on the road. On their side of the bracket, WVU also beat South Carolina 3-2 on the road on Oct. 12, and played to a 2-2 draw on the road against UCF.
The quarterfinal games are set to be played on Sunday, Nov. 5, while the semifinals are set for Wednesday, Nov. 8. The Sun Belt Tournament Championship will be held Sunday, Nov. 12, at the location of the team who is the highest remaining seed in the tournament.
