The Lady Harvesters soccer team have clinched a spot in the Metro Athletic Conference postseason tournament.
Eastfield’s first-round game will be Thursday at 5:30 p.m. at Richland College. Richland is currently ranked sixth in the national poll.
The Lady Harvesters, who will be the fourth seed in the tournament, won two of their last four games in order to qualify for the playoffs. On Oct. 2, Eastfield defeated Southwest Adventist University 3-0. On Oct. 4, the Lady Harvesters defeated Mountain View 3-0.
Their two final wins improved the Lady Harvesters’ record to 3-11. Their first win came 6-2 against Southwest Adventist University on Sept. 18.
Coach Dustin Stein said the Lady Harvesters making the postseason tournament was a result of the hard work they have put in this year.
“This team has come a long way in a very short amount of time,” Stein said. “Each week the girls improve, and you can see their confidence growing. We are excited to be the underdogs entering the tournament and would love to end Richland’s season on Thursday night.”
