Men's Soccer: It Was One for the Recordbooks

By Rick Emery and Sean Capezzone


Hey guys, Rick and Cakes checking in for the last time!

A few days ago, I wrote a post describing our first NCAA tournament game against Nichols College and how we would be traveling to Bowdoin College to battle in the second round. Unfortunately, it did not seem to make it's way onto the website, so I apologize to those of you that follow our blog. Hopefully, it will be posted along with this one to keep you all updated on how our season turned out. (Sorry Mr. Smiles)

After a long three months, our season has officially come to a close. We lost our second round contest to the No. 6 team in the nation, Bowdoin College, by a score of 2-1. We left everything we had on the field and we were able to walk away with our heads held high knowing that we can compete with the top teams in the country.

With twenty-two of the twenty-four players hopefully returning in the fall, the possibilities are endless and the team has potential to challenge for a national title. It seems that all of the freshmen have a strong desire to work hard this off-season to get bigger, stronger and faster, and they understand the work that needs to be done in order to make the goal of being a national champion a reality.

As seniors, we wish the team all the best in the coming years, and we hope to see them continue to propel the program into the ranks of the elite. Do all of the little things this off season to help make this program the best it can be. Next season is closer then you think and even though we will not be there with you, we will be supporting you all 100% of the way.

Also, we wanted to thank all of the parents, families, friends, and fans for their unprecedented support throughout the years! Thank you all so much from the bottom of our hearts!

Go Warriors!
-Cakes and Rick
