Warrior men's team plays at Marymount in opening-round game

Westmont Women's Soccer has been named the No. 7 seed in the NAIA National Tournament and will host Eastern Oregon in the Opening Round on Saturday, Nov. 18 at 1 p.m.

This will be the first meeting between the Warriors (14-3-2)and the Mountaineers (13-3-2).

Eastern Oregon earned an automatic berth in the NAIA Tournament by posting a 2-0 victory over Northwest (Wash.) in the championship game of the Cascade Conference Tournament.  

The Mountaineers have outscored their opponents 26-7 this year and have not allowed a goal in their last five games.

The winner of the opening-round match-up advances to the final site in Orange Beach, Ala., where the remainder of the tournament will be played. The second-round game is scheduled for Tuesday, Nov.  28 at 1:30 p.m. against the winner between No. 10 Columbia (Mo.)  and Siena Heights (Mich.).

The two teams met previously in the season on Sept. 14. That game ended in a 1-1 double-overtime draw.

The Mariners of Marymount (14-3-3) earned an automatic bid in the NAIA Tournament as they defeated UC Merced 4-2 on penalty kicks after the championship game of the Cal Pac Conference Tournament ended in a 1-1 draw.

Marymount is the No. 10 seed heading into the tournament and has faced GSAC teams Hope International, Menlo, The Master’s, and Vanguard.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
