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!
