New Mexico’s Travis Campbell plays final collegiate match in Sweet Sixteen

Tucson, AZ (Monday, November 26, 2012) — Just three former FC Tucson players are still playing soccer this season after San Diego, featuring James Cohn, Michael D’Arrigo and Eli Galbraith-Knapp, defeated Tulsa 2-1 on Sunday, November 25. The Sweet Sixteen-win puts the Toreros into the Elite Eight, where they will face Georgetown on Saturday, December 1 at 1 p.m. EST.

Cohn and Galbraith-Knapp both started the match but did not notch a point. In the NCAA tournament, San Diego has had to come from behind against ranked opponents three times to reach the Elite Eight. The appearance is the first for the school in the Elite Eight since 1992.

On the other side of the bracket, New Mexico’s Travis Campbell participated in his final collegiate match. The Lobos lost a double overtime heartbreaker to UConn 2-1 on Sunday. Campbell started the match and played all 104 minutes. His final two seasons at New Mexico coincided with the best two-year stretch in the school’s history according to the team’s website.
