Oct. 26, 2012
HOUSTON - The University of Houston soccer team clinched the eighth and final spot in the Conference USA Championship after Marshall suffered a 1-0 loss at East Carolina on Thursday evening. The Cougars (7-7-3, 3-3-3 C-USA) secured a spot in the postseason for the first time since the 2010 season.
"I'm very excited for the team on this great accomplishment," Head Coach Chris Pfau said. "They have worked so hard on going 3-1-1 over the last five matches."
This is Pfau's fourth consecutive trip to the postseason as a head coach and first at Houston.
Houston will compete as the eighth seed and play the No. 1 seed at noon, Oct. 31 in El Paso, Texas. The No. 1 seed has yet to be determined, but the Cougars will play Colorado College, Rice, or UCF.

The match-up between Houston and Southern Miss has been cancelled.
