Lions Selected for ECAC Tournament

ERIE, Pa. - ERIE, Pa. – The Penn State Behrend men's soccer team will travel to Newark, New Jersey, and the campus of Rutgers-Newark for the first round of the Eastern College Athletic Conference (ECAC) Division III tournament this weekend.

The Lions (12-5) are scheduled to open play against the Cougars of Misericordia University (12-4-1) on Saturday for a 3 p.m. start. This year marks the ninth time Behrend will take part in the tournament.

Both teams enter the competition after dropping contests in the postseason of their respective conferences. Misericordia fell in their title game to Stevens on penalty kicks following a 1-1 tie after regulation and the Lions lost to Mt. Aloysius in the semifinals of the Allegheny Mountain Collegiate Conference (AMCC) last time out.

Rutgers-Newark will be up against Westminster in their first-round tilt and the victor of the match between Behrend and Misericordia will face the winner of the aforementioned for a trip to the ECAC Championship.

The Lions last won an ECAC Title in 2009 with their most recent appearance coming in 2017.
