Columbus State will have a first round bye and take on the winner of third-seeded Lenoir-Rhyne and No. 6 seed Belmont Abbey on Sunday, November 11 with kickoff set for 1:00 p.m. at the Walden Soccer Complex.  L-R and Belmont Abbey will square off on Friday, November 9 with that match slated to start at 5:00 p.m.
