Bearcat soccer announces 2012 schedule

MARYVILLE, Mo. – The Northwest Missouri State soccer team announced its upcoming schedule for the 2012 season on Friday.

The Bearcat soccer team is coming off its first ever postseason appearance where they went 10-7-2 and advanced to the second round of the MIAA Tournament.

Northwest opens its 2012 slate with a tough non-conference portion to fill the first two weeks before starting MIAA play. The Bearcats open at home against St. Cloud State on Friday, Aug. 31 and continue the weekend hosting Newman on Sunday, Sept. 2.

After a quick road trip to Wayne State (Neb.) the Bearcats host Winona State on Sept. 9, before opening MIAA action against Lindenwood. Lindenwood is one of four new members joining the MIAA.

Among the other newest league members the Bearcats host both Northeastern State and Central Oklahoma to end September. UCO and NSU both competed as independent members last year, however the Bronchos posted a 15-3 record and earned a bye in the NCAA South Central Region Tournament.

Northwest travels to Nebraska-Kearney on Oct. 13 before closing out the final three games of the regular season at home. In the final home stand for Northwest, last year’s league champion Central Missouri will travel to Maryville on Oct. 21.

The top eight teams will earn a spot in the MIAA Postseason Tournament vying for the league automatic bid to the NCAA tournament. With the new alignment and conferences forming the MIAA will now join the Central Region pairing with nine teams from the Great American Conference and 16 teams from the Northern Sun Intercollegiate Conference.

In 2012 first round games will be played on campus sites with the higher seed playing host. The final four advancing schools will then advance to the highest remaining seeds’ campus to crown the league champion.
