KANSAS CITY - The Marian women's soccer team received an at-large bid to the NAIA National Tournament and will host Central Methodist (Mo.) Saturday as announced by the NAIA Monday afternoon. It is Marian's first trip to the National Tournament.

Marian will enter the National Tournament with a 15-3-3 record overall after finishing runner-up in the Crossroads League in both the regular season and the tournament. Marian is 13-0-1 at home this season with the only tie coming against No. 2 Spring Arbor to close the regular season. 

The Knights will take on a Central Methodist team that is 16-2-2 and fell in the Heart of America Conference Tournament final. The Eagles boast a stingy defense that has allowed only five goals all season. Central Methodist is 7-0-1 on the road this year.

Match time is TBA, but a live video stream along with live stats will be available here.
