Men's Soccer: Moving on from LEC Title to NCAA Tournament

by Matt Kalmin


Hey everyone!

As many of you all know we recently won the Little East Conference post-season tournament last weekend! We played Keene State at home for the final game.  We were very confident in ourselves because we had everyone back for the game, even Mike Radlbeck who was injured for five weeks straight.  We played a hard-fought game and in the end won on a penalty kick by Matt Esposito in the first few minutes.  For myself and the other seniors, it is our second LEC tournament title in the four years that we have been here.

For the third consecutive year, we have made it to the NCAA Division II Tournament.  Everyone on the team is extremely excited for the opportunity that is in front of us.  We will be playing Springfield College on Saturday at 11 a.m, in the first round.  If we win, we will play the winner of Amherst-Husson on Sunday at 1 p.m..  The games are being held at Amherst College in Massachusetts 

Please come up and support us as we attempt for a berth in the NCAA Sweet 16  for the first time in school history!

Men's Soccer: Redemption in LEC Semifinals is Sweet!

By Matt Kalmin


Hey everyone!

It's Matt again here to update you all on our progress.  
As most of you know, we sustained  a tough defeat last Saturday at UMass Dartmouth.  The elements ended up getting the better of us and we lost 1-0.  But, after a few days of physically and mentally preparing ourselves, we took them on again in the LEC semifinal game Wednesday.  We started off the game with high intensity because we knew our season was on the line.  Carl Stensland put in the first two goals for us with great composure.  In the second half, Zach Kice connected with Mitch Power two more times to total four goals for us.  The game ended 4-0 and we are moving onto the conference championship this Saturday home against Keene State!  We also will have everyone back and healthy for Saturday's game.  That's right folks, Sean Collins and Kyle Suprenant will be back and we will have everyone healthy for the first time this year!  The future is looking brilliant!

Everyone come out and support us in our conquest of the NCAA title... one game at a time.
