SNHU teams in NCAA tournaments this weekend

The Southern New Hampshire University men's soccer team, ranked 15th in the nation, received some good news on Monday. The Penmen earned a bid to the NCAA Division II men's soccer tournament and received a first-round bye in East Regional games played at SNHU's Larkin Field this weekend.

The tourney begins on Friday with No. 3 Merrimack College (14-3-2) facing No. 6 seed Franklin Pierce University (11-5-2) at 6 p.m. The No. 2 Penmen (17-3) will face the winner of that contest Sunday at 3 p.m. Southern New Hampshire, which captured its fourth Northeast-10 tournament championship on Sunday, earned its 18th overall appearance in the NCAA Division II tournament.

Ticket prices for each game are $6 for adults and $2 for students with ID, seniors and children 12 and under. Children ages 2 and under are free. SNHU students with valid ID will be admitted free on Sunday, courtesy of the SNHU Student Government Association.
