On a night when most were braving the bitter cold and flurries to gather some treats Midland University picked up a big GPAC quarterfinal win over Morningside College. The Warriors put a pair of goals past the Mustangs in the opening half on their way to a 2-0 victory. With the win Midland improves to 11-7 and moves on to the semifinals. Morningside’s season comes to a close with record of 9-6-3.
Temperatures were just above freezing as the two teams warmed prior to the 7 p.m. game. Snow flurries moved into Fremont during the late afternoon but no accumulation was seen until just before the start of the match. Paths where the players had ran or the ball had been kicked were easily visible from the stands.
Midland will match up with Hastings (16-3) in one semifinals while Concordia will travel and take Northwestern. Both matches will take place on Saturday, November 4th. Game time between the Warriors and the Broncos is set for 7:00 p.m. in Hastings, Nebraska.
