Men's soccer team goes to finals
The Triton College men's soccer team will go for its sixth consecutive Region IV Division III title at noon this Saturday, Oct. 26, against Joliet Junior College. The game will be played at the Schwaben Athletic Club located at 301 N. Weiland Road in Buffalo Grove.
The Trojans, now 11-1-1, advanced to the championship game by virtue of a 2-0 win in Wednesday's Region IV semifinal over Harper College.
Saturday's final will be the third straight year Triton and Joliet have met for the regional crown. The Trojans won both regular season games over the Wolves by scores of 3-2 and 4-3.
Joliet (8-5-1) punched their ticket to the finals with a 1-0 win over Madison College in Wednesday's other regional semifinal contest.
The Triton-Joliet winner will advance to the District C finals in White Bear Lake, Minn., to take on the Mighty Wood Ducks of Century Community College on Saturday, Nov. 2. The District C winner will advance to the NJCAA Division III National Tournament in Herkimer, Ny., from Nov. 14-17.
