For the fourth time in program history, the Oregon State men’s soccer team has punched a ticket to the NCAA Tournament, the NCAA Selection Committee announced Monday. One reason was their stellar play in the Pac-12 including their golden goal win over UCLA two weeks ago shown above.
The Beavers will face SMU at Lorenz Field Thursday at 6 p.m. The winner of that game will advance to face Saint Mary’s on Sunday.
Tickets for Thursday’s game will be available for $10 for adults, $8 for youth and seniors. You can purchase them online here.
The postseason appearance will be the first for Oregon State since 2014, as head coach Terry Boss has guided the team to the NCAA Tournament in his first season leading the team.
The Beavers finished the regular season with a record of 10-5-3, the team's best win total since 2014. Oregon State also went 6-3-1 in Pac-12 play to finish the year second in the conference, recording its highest Pac-12/10 win total since 2003.
Senior Don Tchilao has posted the best season of his collegiate career, scoring seven goals to go with seven assists. Freshman Gloire Amanda has paced the squad with eight goals.
