Division IV Semifinal Matchups Set

 April 9th, 2022 at 11:56PM  April 10th, 2022 4:57AM

The Division IV semifinal matchups are set. After all 6 teams played 3 round robin games each, the op 2 teams earned a 1st round bye while the bottom four played into the semifinals.

Here is a preview of the Division III semifinal matchups:

 

Lindenwood vs. Michigan State

10:30am

We have seen this matchup many times before, and this definitely won’t be the last. These 2 teams met earlier in the season, with a Lindenwood 11-1 win.

So far at this event, Lindenwood has gone 3-0 in round robin and earned a 1st round bye into the semifinals. Their round robin wins were commanding, 15-0 vs. Arizona, 9-1 vs. Slippery Rock and 16-0 vs. CSU Fullerton.

Michigan State’s route was not too much different, as they also went 3-0 in round robin, but were the #2 seed, hence the 1st round game against UMass. MSU’s round robin wins were against CSU Fullerton 6-2, Arizona 3-2 and Slippery Rock 4-2. MSU defeated UMass 5-1 in that 1st round game, and now faces Lindenwood in what should be a great semifinal battle.

 

Slippery Rock vs. Arizona

11:45am

Slippery Rock went 1-2 in round robin, with the losses to Lindenwood and Michigan State, but a 5-3 win against UMass which made Slippery Rock the #1 seed in their pool and earning them a 1st round bye.

Arizona had a rough round robin, going 0-3 but not without a fight. After their opening game loss to Lindenwood, they lost to Michigan State and UMass by just 1 goal each game. Then in the 1st round of the playoffs they faced CSU Fullerton, and they beat their WCRHL rival by a score of 5-3, earning this trip to the semis.

These two teams have never met, so it promises to be a good one!
