The seeds are set for the 2012 Men's Soccer Championship, which will take place Nov. 8 and 10 at Tenney Stadium at Leonidoff Field on the campus of Marist College.

The first semifinal on Thursday, Nov. 8 will be between second-seeded Siena College and third-seeded Niagara University at 7 p.m. In their regular season matchup on Oct. 19, Daniel Alderstad scored in the 43rd minute, sending the Saints to a 1-0 win over the previously unbeaten Purple Eagles at a rain soaked Siena Turf Field. With just 2:17 remaining in the opening half, Sindre Ek turned and led a streaking Alderstad down the left side, who went on to record his second goal of the season.

The second semifinal will feature top-seeded Loyola University Maryland against fourth-seeded Iona College at 9:00 p.m. On Oct. 19, the Greyhounds claimed a 3-1 victory at home over the Gaels at Mazzella Field. Junior Stephen Dooley started the scoring in the 31st minute, putting just enough of a touch on a pass from freshman Dominic Marshall to place it into the left corner of the goal. Dooley then returned the favor on a breakaway in the second half, chipping a cross to freshman Larry Ndjock in a give-and-go situation. Iona goalkeeper Borja Barbero attempted to knock Dooley's cross over the cross ball, but Ndjock headed it into the back of the net before Barbero could get to it, giving the Greyhounds a 2-0 advantage. The Greyhounds then created a two-on-one situation on a counter attack in the 62nd minute. Sophomore Connor Thompson and Ndjock beat the Gaels' defense before Ndjock capped off the run with his second goal of the game. In the 71st minute, the Greyhounds were called for a foul in the box, setting the Gaels up for a penalty kick, which Alvaro Torrecilla placed into the bottom right corner of the goal for Iona's lone score.

Both semifinal matches can be seen on MAAC.TV.

The championship final will take place on Saturday, Nov. 10 at 8:00 p.m., live on ESPN3. The winner of that match will receive the league's automatic bid to the 2012 NCAA Division I Men's Soccer Championship.
