LOOKOUT MOUNTAIN -- The Covenant men's soccer team earned the No. 6 seed in the USA South Tournament and will travel to rival Maryville to face the No. 3-seeded Scots on Saturday at 2:30 p.m.
Covenant, the defending USA South Tournament champions, enters the tournament with a 5-10-2 overall record and a 4-4-2 mark in the USA South. Maryville finished the regular season with a 13-2-2 record and 7-1-2 in the conference.
The two teams are very familiar with each other. Maryville defeated Covenant 2-1 on Wednesday night in Chattanooga and the teams met in last year's USA South Tournament championship with Covenant claiming a 2-0 victory. Covenant is 4-4 all-time against the northern Scots.
The winner of Saturday's match will face the winner of Methodist and Ferrum on Friday, Nov. 6 at the site of the highest remaining seed left in the tournament. The championship is set for Saturday, Nov. 7.
