After both the Kentucky basketball and football teams having success this weekend, the Wildcats followed suit Sunday on the soccer field winning the Conference USA Championship and punching an automatic bid to the NCAA Tournament.
Kentucky fell behind 0-1 in the first half but managed to tie the score in regulation before pulling ahead in overtime to clinch the victory.
Marcel Meinzer scored the game-tying goal, his first of the season in timely fashion. Eythor Bjorgolfsson kept the momentum going, netting the “Golden Goal” for the Wildcats.
The NCAA Men’s Soccer tournament bracket will be released today at 1 pm. Along with an automatic bid, Kentucky could also find themselves within the Top-16 which would deliver an opening-round bye.
If for some reason they don’t receive a bye, Kentucky could end up playing a “home” playoff game as Lexington is set to be one of the first-round host sites. What are your predictions for their seed? How far can the Wildcats go this postseason?
