Both UCCS soccer teams begin RMAC Tournament action Oct. 30

Fans cheer for the UCCS soccer teams at Mountain Lion Stadium.

The defending RMAC women’s soccer tournament champions will go for back-to-back championships as No. 2 seed UCCS hosts No. 7 seed Colorado State-Pueblo in the quarterfinal round of the 2018 conference tournament. The men earned the No. 5 seed and will travel to No. 4 seed Regis for its first round game. Both games will be played Oct. 30.

UCCS Women vs. Colorado State-Pueblo – 3 p.m. – Mountain Lion Stadium
The UCCS women finished with a 12-1 conference record and will host the ThunderWolves for the second time this season. The Mountain Lions won the first meeting 3-0 during the Sept. 14 Homecoming game. The first 100 students with ID will receive free admission.

A win by UCCS would put it against the winner of No. 3 Westminster and No. 6 Regis in the semifinal. The top remaining seed after the quarterfinals Oct. 30 will host the semifinals Nov. 2 and the championship game Nov. 4. Colorado School of Mines is the top seed and will host No. 8 Colorado Christian. No. 4 Dixie State and No. 5 MSU Denver will play in the other quarterfinal game.

UCCS Men vs. Regis – 3 p.m. – Regis Match Pitch (Denver)
The men finished with an 8-4-2 conference record in the regular season.

The teams tied 1-1 during the annual Homecoming game Sept. 14 in Colorado Springs.

A win by UCCS would put it against No. 1 seed Colorado School of Mines, who received a bye into the semifinals in the six-team bracket and will host the semifinal and championship rounds. Westminster received the No. 2 seed and the first round bye, and will play the winner of No. 3 Colorado Mesa and No. 6 MSU Denver.
