College Client Daniel Sonnerstedt advances to third round of NCAA tournament

Congratulations to CMGs college client Daniel Sonnerstedt who made his first career start and advanced to the third round of the NCAA tournament earlier this week. Daniel plays for the Lander University Bearcats in NCAA Division II. The team has had a very successful season winning the Peach Belt Conference regular season and conference tournament championship.

“Just incredibly proud of my team. To play two matches in three days, not many teams can get out of that. We utilized our squad, which was fantastic that everybody bought in. It wasn’t necessarily pretty, it wasn’t our most free-flowing football, but we found a way.” – Lee Squires, head coach

They advanced to the NCAAs and won their conference tournament in an exciting game against North Georgia. The 110 minute game featured double overtime and 18 penalty kicks. The game was tied 1-1 through regulation and both overtimes but the Bearcats outlasted North Georgia 9-8 in penalty kicks.

Since then the Bearcats have faced Lincoln Memorial and defending national champion Wingate. Most recently they upset 13 seeded Wingate in a tight match that resulted in their second penalty kick shootout that week. The Bearcats defeated Wingate at home and are now one of the final 16 teams in the country left standing.

The 110 minute game featured double overtime and 18 penalty kicks.

They will compete for a chance in the elite eight against Young Harris on Friday November 17 at 13.00 (US eastern time). CMG wishes Daniel and the Lander Bearcats the best of luck as they make their run in the NCAA tournament!
