Thanks to a win over Virginia Tech and some help elsewhere, the Pitt men‘s soccer team won the ACC Coastal Division on Friday night and will enter the ACC men’s soccer tournament as the number one overall seed.
The Panthers entered the day needing a win and a loss by Notre Dame to win the Coastal, and did so, with the Irish losing earlier and the Panthers taking care of business on senior day at home, beating the Hokies 4-1 to claim at least a share of the division for the second consecutive season.
Pitt has earned a bye into the second round of the ACC tournament, where the Panthers will face the winner of No. 9 Boston College at No. 8 Virginia Tech. That match will take place on Wednesday at 7 p.m.
The Panthers will have home-field advantage in the quarterfinals, which will kick off at 4 p.m on Sunday, Nov. 7 at Ambrose Urbanic Field on Pitt’s campus. That match will be broadcast on ACC Network.
Should the Panthers advance, they will also play their semifinal match at home. That will be played at either 5 or 7 p.m. on Wednesday, Nov. 10.
The 2021 ACC Championship Game will be played at WakeMed Soccer Park in Cary, North Carolina on Sunday, Nov. 14 at 2 p.m. That game will be broadcast on ESPNU.
Pitt made it all the way to the ACC final in the 2020-21 season, losing 2-0 to Clemson in the championship game. Pitt has never won an ACC soccer championship.
