The University of North Texas soccer team will play Texas Tech University in the opening round of the NCAA tournament on Friday night at 7:00 p.m.

The team hosted a watch party for the national selection show in Apogee Stadium Monday afternoon, where staff and family gathered to find out who the team would be playing. The Red Raiders (13-3-5) and the Mean Green (19-3-1) faced off in round one of the NCAA tournament in 2012, a match Texas Tech won, after North Texas won the Sun-Belt tournament.

Head coach John Hedlund looks forward to the match-up despite the adverse conditions of playing on turf in Lubbock.

“The only thing is we’re going to have to start practicing on AstroTurf tomorrow,” Hedlund said. “It’s two really good teams. Outside of that, I think it’s going to be a good match-up. We just have to get used to the surface.”

The winner of the match will move on to face the winner of the Auburn University versus Southeastern Louisiana University match. Goalkeeper Jackie Kerestine, who did not allow a goal during the Conference-USA tournament, is ready to check off the next big goal on her list after winning the C-USA tournament.

“At the beginning of the year, the seniors laid out a list of things we wanted to accomplish,” said Kerestine. “That [C-USA tournament win] was on the list. It was very fulfilling to be able to check that off.”

When asked what was next on Kerestine’s list, she did not hesitate saying it was to win a game in the NCAA tournament.
