The winners of the two first-round matches will meet Sunday at 1 p.m. with a trip to the Round of 16 on the line.

The Warhawks (14-5-3 overall) claimed the WIAC's automatic (Pool A) bid to the NCAA Tournament after winning the conference tournament for the fifth time in program history with a 4-1 victory over UW-La Crosse last Saturday.

UW-W earned the WIAC regular season championship for the seventh time in the past 10 years with a 5-1-1 league record.
