Norfolk, Va. – The 2014 Conference-USA Champion Monarchs of Old Dominion will host the Terriers of St. Francis Brooklyn, champions of the Northeast Conference, Thursday night at 7 p.m. at the ODU Soccer Complex, according to the Old Dominion University website. The winner will meet the eighth seeded Georgetown Hoyas (12-4-4) on Sunday in Washington, DC. This is ODU’s fifth straight NCAA appearance, officials say.
