Drexel men’s soccer is two wins on their home field away from qualifying for the NCAA Tournament for the first time since 2013.

The Dragons will be hosting a pair of semifinals today (Drexel vs James Madison at noon, Hofstra vs UNC Wilmington at 4 p.m.) at Vidas Field in Philadelphia. Attendance is being limited to families and guests of student-athletes and coaches and the game is being streamed on FloFC at www.flosports.tv/caa.

Drexel (6-3-1, 2-1-1 CAA) earned a berth in the CAA semifinals for the first time since 2013 after knocking off Delaware, 4-1, last Saturday. It was the Dragons’ fourth consecutive victory.

The tournament winner will receive an automatic bid into the NCAA Tournament, which has been reduced from 48 to 36 teams this year.
