The Hurricanes men's soccer team will play for a national championship Saturday, Nov. 21!

Ben Foulds scored a little more than 4 minutes into sudden death overtime Friday evening to give Louisburg a 2-1 win over Pima (Ariz.) Community College in the semifinals of the NJCAA National Tournament. The Hurricanes, now 23-1 on the year, will face either Eastern Florida State or Tyler (Tex.) in Saturday's championship game, which will be played at 3 p.m., at the Smith River Sports Complex in Axton, Va., near Martinsville.

Max Blackmore scored in the 66th minute for Louisburg to open the scoring, but Pima tied the game with just under 10 minutes to play in regulation time.

In overtime, Foulds' winning shot found the right corner of the net to propel the Hurricanes into the championship game.

A live video stream of Saturday's game will be available shortly before 3 p.m., on the NJCAA-TV Web site: http://www.njcaatv.com/landing/index
