HAYS, Kansas (FHSU Sports Information) -

Fort Hays State men's soccer received its second consecutive berth into the NCAA Tournament in just the third year of existence for the program as the No. 2 seed in the Central Regional. The Tigers will play Lindenwood, the No. 1 seed, on either Nov. 21 or 22.

The exact location of FHSU's matchup will be determined by Sunday, Nov. 17 based on the outcome of the other Super Region 3 matchups.

Both Fort Hays State and Lindenwood are already in the round of 16 teams as the Central Region receives only two selections to the tournament. The teams will meet in what is virtually a regional final, before meeting the team that comes out to the Elite Eight from the Midwest Regional.  

Fort Hays State enters the tournament at 12-4-3 overall, and is 1-0-1 against Lindenwood this season.  The Tigers dropped a 4-3 contest to the Lion in St. Charles, Mo., on Oct. 3, and tied LU in the MIAA Tournament final on Saturday(Nov. 9), though finished second by falling in penalty kicks (6-5).
