The 2018 USA South Men's Soccer Tournament is underway with first round action on Tuesday, October 30 on campus sites as each of the higher divisional seeds advanced through to the next round. In the East Division, top-seed Greensboro shutout fourth seed Methodist, 3-0, while second seed N.C. Wesleyan eased past third seed William Peace, 4-0. In the West Division, top-seed Maryville scored a late goal to top fourth seed LaGrange, 2-1, as second seed Covenant shutout third seed Piedmont, 3-0.
The tournament will now shift to Maryville, Tennessee and the campus of Maryville College for the semifinal and championship games. Maryville and Greensboro are both the same divisional seed number and Greensboro had more points during regular season League play, however the tournament will be hosted by the Scots due to a Conference policy which states an institution may not simultaneously host the men's and women's semifinals and finals. Due to a predetermined gender rotation, the Greensboro women will host and the men's tournament will head to the West.
The first semifinal contest will take place at 4:00pm on Friday, November 2, as Covenant and Greensboro will battle while the second semifinal game will feature N.C. Wesleyan and Maryville at 7:00pm. The winners of the two games will compete for the tournament title on Saturday, November 3 at 6:00pm.
