49ers to face X in A-10 soccer quarters

The third-seed Charlotte 49ers will face No. 6 Xavier (10-4-3) in the quarterfinals of the Atlantic 10 tournament Thursday in St. Louis. Charlotte (13-3-2, 6-1-2) had 20 points and finished behind co-regular-season champs Fordham (11-6, 7-2) and George Washington (9-6-2, 7-2), which both had 21 points.

Thursday’s other quarterfinal has No. 4 Temple (9-9, 5-4) facing No. 5 La Salle (6-8-4, 4-2-3). The semifinals are Friday and the championship is set for 1 p.m. Sunday.

Charlotte beat Xavier 1-0 earlier this season.

That is a tough draw. The tie at La Salle came back to bight the 49ers. There is no way Fordham is the best team. But, having to play a Xavier team that does nothing but stay in their box is not fun.

Agree completely. All Xavier wants to do is take the game to a shootout. They know they can't hang with us. Worked for them in conference tournament last year. They remind me of a pre-shot clock basketball team that just wanted to hold the ball and shorten the game.
