CCU enters the semifinal match ending the season on a 6-2-2 run over its final 10 matches. Four of those matches went into overtime with CCU going 2-0-2 in those four matches.
Frantzdy Pierrot and Einar Einarsson, both first team All-Sun Belt selections, will lead the Chanticleers into their first Sun Belt Conference Tournament after finishing the season with a 3-1-1 SBC record.
The fourth-seeded Hawks (9-5-4) will make their third consecutive conference tournament semifinal appearance.
The match is scheduled to begin at 3 p.m. and is being played at the Georgia State University Soccer Complex.
