Warhawk Weekly 11-23: Warhawks advance in NCAA; Invest in Success

Warhawks advance to NCAA Sweet 16

Auburn University at Montgomery has already made quite an impression in its NCAA Division II men’s soccer tournament debut.

The Warhawks earned a berth in the NCAA Sweet 16 by knocking off No. 9-ranked University of Tampa 1-0 in overtime in Sunday’s first round. AUM advances to face No. 1-ranked Young Harris College on Thursday, Dec. 2, at 5 p.m. in Young Harris, Georgia.

AUM (11-4-3) clinched its first postseason victory as a Division II member when senior Nathaniel Grant scored with 13 seconds left in the second overtime period. Senior defender Luke Wheeldon took possession of the ball near midfield and finished a long run with a cross to Grant for the game-winner.

Alexander Kraus earned his ninth shutout of the season in goal, turning away seven shots.
