Concordia women’s soccer coach Dan Weiler is hoping tournament experience will help his team make a deep run into the NCAA Division III tournament.

The Cobbers play Northwester (Minn.) at 5 p.m. Friday in the first round at Macalester. Weiler likes the way the bracket sets up for his team, which made it to the Sweet 16 in last season’s tournament.

“I think the goal is to go further,” Weiler said. “When you got to the national tournament it’s a place you need experience to make a run through it.”

The Minnesota Intercollegiate Athletic Conference tournament champions, the Cobbers have made to four of the last five NCAA tournaments.
