It will be a quick turnaround for the Drake men’s soccer tam which leaves later this week for Boston and a matchup against Boston College on Sunday in the sweet 16 of the NCAA Tournament. The Bulldogs advanced after stunning fourth ranked Ohio State 1-0 in sudden death overtime in Columbus.
Drake coach Sean Holmes says he got on the job training as a travel agent arranging the travel and hotels. He say most of the team will miss Thanksgiving with their family, but says this is a good reason to miss it.
Holmes says the players enjoy the challenge of playing on the road. He says anytime you win on the road that means you extend the season and get to go on another trip.
