Denver men’s soccer’s 2-1 comeback victory Monday afternoon at Eastern Illinois set the table for what has become an annual title showdown between Denver and Omaha. The winner of the two-match series, in Omaha on Thursday and Denver on Sunday, is nearly guaranteed to represent the Summit League at the NCAA Soccer tournament. Denver sits at 6-2-0 (18 pts) and Omaha is 5-2-1 (16 pts). First-place Oral Roberts has already completed their schedule and they sit at 6-3-1 (19 pts). If Denver can get one clean win against Omaha, they will win the conference title outright. Continue reading Denver & Omaha to Determine Summit League Champion in Season-Ending Two-Game Series

It was a bittersweet several days for DU athletes and fans this week as Denver competed in season-ending competitions which, ultimately, were decided in their opponents’ favor. This is a reminder to all of us why athletic competitions can provide great exhilaration as well as gut-wrenching disappointment which oftentimes hinge on a single moment. In each case, Denver was positioned for success but came up just short.
Clearly, the Pioneers (14-3) and the Coyotes (16-6, 13-3) were the class of the Summit League this season and it was fitting that the two teams met to determine the best conference team with the winner going to the NCAA Tournament. It was also appropriate that the Denver and South Dakota Summit League Volleyball Championship match went to a fifth and deciding set between two evenly matched squads. Denver took the first two games of the match, one in extra points. South Dakota counterpunched with two straight games, both in extra points. Of course, the deciding game went to extra points as well, 14-12, South Dakota.
