The Drake men’s soccer team will look to earn another road win in the NCAA Tournament when they visit fifth rated North Carolina in the Elite Eight. The 24th ranked Bulldogs have already won at Boston College and number-four Ohio State to reach this point and coach Sean Holmes is not surprised.
Holmes says some people think it is a fluke, but they made the tournament last year and had a great top 25 national RPI, and lost to St.Louis. Holmes says the Bulldogs are confident no matter who the opponent is. He says they don’t spend a lot of time worrying about who they play. He says North Carolina has won a national championship, but he says there is no one that is so unbeatable that they won’t have a chance.
The winner will advance to the College Cup which is soccer’s version of the final four.
