[TULSA-NORTHWESTERN 1-0] For the second time in five years, Tulsa advanced to the quarterfinals of the NCAA Men's Tournament with a 1-0 win over Northwestern on sophomore Austin Neil's goal in the rain at the Hurricane Soccer and Track Stadium.

"Our second team guys prepared us very well for today's game," Tulsa coach Tom McIntosh said.  "They really gave us a lot of problems in training, which helped a lot in our preparation.  I thought we had a lot of improvement from last week's game.  Our backline did a good job and we were much tighter.  We connected better offensively and caused a lot of problems wide.  We created chances and had better individual performances than a week ago."

Neil scored his team-leading 14th of the season when he back-footed a pass from Scotsman Ashley McInnes, ricocheting the ball off the post at the 73:25 mark.

Next up for the Hurricane: No. 1 Akron.
 
"Akron is one of the best teams in college soccer that I've seen in my 15 years of coaching," said McIntosh. "They are very good in possession, they don't give away many opportunities and they are very athletic.  The good thing is that we are familiar with them.  I think we really made improvements in that game and since, but we will have to continue to improve before next week's game.  I am looking forward to it.  We are going to compete and we are not going to back down."
