EKU SOCCER | Colonels Rolling Heading into OVC Tournament

10/28/2016 07:00 PM

The EKU girls soccer (13-4-0, 8-2-0) team made school history this week.

By beating Tennessee Tech 1-0 on Thursday, coupled with a Murray State / Austin Peay draw, the Colonels won a share of their first-ever Ohio valley Conference regular season title.

EKU shares the conference title with Murray St, as both teams finished the season with 24 conference points.

That is not the only accomplishment for Eastern this season. The team set the program record for wins in a season (13).

The Colonels will enter the upcoming OVC Tournament as the No. 2 seed. As a result, they automatically receive a bye heading into the semifinal round of the bracket.

Despite sharing the conference regular season title, Murray St. enters the tournament as the No. 1 seed, because it beat EKU during the regular season.

EKU will either play Tennessee Tech or Belmont in the OVC semifinal round on Friday, November 4th.
