One of Bradley's past soccer players is the starting kicker and current CAPTAIN of the Penn State Football team!

Bradley men's soccer, which was picked to finish last in the MVC preseason poll, beat Drake last night 1-0 to improve their MVC record to 2-0-1. They are 7-3-1 overall, and 6-1-1 in the last 8 matches.

Bradley was picked for last place in the MVC Preseason poll. As I said back in August, I think they will do much better. And they have.
With the regular season completed, Bradley finished in 3rd place with a record of 10-7-2 overall, and 4-3-1 in the MVC-

The postseason MVC Men's Soccer tournament starts today at Bradley's Shea Stadium.
Bradley has the #3 seed, and gets a bye in the first round. They will play Wednesday at 3:00 PM against the winner of today's first round game between Drake and Valparaiso (12:00 Noon start).
The games can all be seen on ESPN3.com- see links on the MVC website-

they need to get an 8th team....that bracket that gives a team with 5-3 a double bye when they are playing every day or two is silly....

The MVC began a postseason men's soccer tournament in 1991. Since the start, Bradley has the most tournament championships of any current team- 3.
Only 4 current teams have ever won the Postseason Tournament Championship (Bradley-3, Drake-2, Evansville-1, and Missouri State-1)

Tournament Championships
13 - Creighton (1992, 1993, 1994, 1995, 1997, 1998, 2000, 2002, 2005, 2006, 2008, 2011, 2012)
3 - Bradley (2007, 2010, 2013)
3 - SMU (2001, 2003, 2004)
2 - Drake (2009, 2015)
2 - SIUE (2014, 2016)
1 - Evansville (1996)
1 - Missouri State (1999)
1 - Tulsa (1991)

Tournament hosts have won the championship just six times (5-15-1 record) in league history. This will be the 8th time Bradley has hosted the MVC Championship Tournament. Bradley has won the MVC Tournament Championship twice in it's seven previous tries.

Bradley has the 2nd most Regular Season championships among current MVC teams. Only 3 current teams have won Regular Season titles.
Regular-Season Championships
12 - Creighton (1992, 1993, 1994, 1995, 1996, 2003, 2006, 2007, 2008, 2010, 2011, 2012)
7 - Missouri State (1997, 1999, 2009, 2011, 2013, 2014, 2017)
4 - Bradley (1998, 2005, 2006, 2007)
4 - SMU (2000, 2001, 2002, 2004)
1 - Loyola (2016)
1 - SIUE (2015)
1 - Tulsa (1991)

Only Bradley and Missouri State have ever won both the Regular Season title and the Postseason Tournament Championship in the same season. Both have done it once.

Bradley's MVC Men's Soccer Postseason Tournament History-
21st MVC Tournament appearance
19-15-6 (.550) overall record (Easily the best among current MVC teams- no other current team even has a winning record))
9-5-3 (.618 ) vs. 2017 MVC Tournament teams (Easily the best among current MVC teams)
17 semifinal appearances (9-8 record- tops among the current MVC teams, and the only team with a winning semifinal record)
Nine title match appearances (3-6 record- most among current MVC teams)
Three MVC Tournament championships (most among current MVC teams)

The postseason All MVC and other awards should be announced soon. Recall that no Bradley player was named to the 11-man Preseason All MVC team.

In the only 1st round match today, Drake leads Valparaiso 3-2 late-

But the most spectacular play of the game so far was this solo move and goal by Valpo forward Rafael Mentzingen-
