The 22nd-ranked Oglethorpe men's soccer team takes on the Gettysburg Bullets in the first round of the NCAA Division III Men's Soccer Championship Saturday at 1:30 p.m. in Lexington, Virginia, marking the program's third overall appearance in the NCAA tournament and their second in the last three years.
The 14-4 Stormy Petrels won their fifth consecutive SAA regular season title and advanced to the SAA Men's Soccer Championship final for the third straight season. They received an at-large bid to the NCAA tournament for the first time in program history, and will take on a Gettysburg team that finished 11-7-1 and earned an at-large bid out of the Centennial Conference.
The Petrels take the field after the pod's first game between host No. 11 Washington & Lee and North Carolina Wesleyan at 11 a.m. If victorious, the Petrels would play the winner of that game Sunday afternoon at 1 p.m. in the second round.
