Robert Morris, Penn State and West Virginia qualified for this year’s NCAA men’s soccer championship.

West Virginia (12-7-2), an at-large qualifier, will host Northeast Conference champion Robert Morris (11-7-1) in the first round Saturday at 1 p.m. The two teams met in the regular season on Sept. 28, a 3-0 win for the Mountaineers. The winner of that game will advance to play ninth-seeded Akron (17-1-2) on Nov. 22.

Penn State (12-6-2), the Big Ten champion, were given the 11th seed and a first-round bye in the tournament. The Nittany Lions will play their first game Nov. 22 against the winner of the first round match between Seton Hall (12-3-3) and Hartwick (13-5-1).

  • Top-seeded Penn State (21-0-1) will host fourth-seeded Texas A&M (18-3-2) on Saturday at 1 p.m in the third round of the NCAA women’s soccer championship. Penn State advanced with a 5-2 win over West Virginia on Sunday, while Texas A&M defeated Southern Methodist, 4-2, in its second round game.

  • Pitt-Bradford men’s soccer coach Kevin Perrigo has resigned due to personal reasons after two years in charge of the program. His resignation allows him to move closer to his family near Syracuse, N.Y. Pitt-Bradford athletic director Lori Mazza hopes to have the search for a new coach completed within the next few weeks, according to a news release from the school.

    You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

    We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

    While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

    We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

    We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

    We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

    We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

    We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
