The Webster University women’s soccer team will be headed to Chicago again for a first round match-up in the NCAA III Championships, this time facing the host University of Chicago on Saturday, Nov. 15, at 11 a.m.

Webster, winner of the St. Louis Intercollegiate Athletic Conference (SLIAC) regular season title, and the SLIAC Tournament, will enter the NCAA Regional on a 10-game winning streak. This marks Webster’s third straight NCAA appearance and 11th appearance in the program’s 16 year history of competition. Webster was 9-0 in the SLIAC and is 14-4-3 overall on the season. The Gorloks are 10th in the Central Region in the most recent National Soccer Coaches Association of America (NSCAA) rankings.

The Gorloks will take on the Maroons of the University of Chicago. The Maroons are 13-4-1 overall and were ranked 11th nationally in last week’s NSCAA national poll, and third in the Central Region. This marks their second-straight appearance in the NCAA postseason and 14th overall appearance. Chicago finished second in the University Athletic Association (UAA) at 4-2-1 with Washington University winning the UAA league title.

The winner on Saturday will take on the victor of the other Regional semi-final, Augsburg College vs. University of Wisconsin-Oshkosh. The Regional championship will be at 1 p.m. on Sunday, Nov. 16.
