Playoffs at Nickerson Field
Tonight, the Boston University Terriers host the Big Green of Dartmouth College in the first round of the NCAA men's soccer championship tournament. It's not that I'm a big college soccer fan, it's that I'm astounded that an America East Conference team was good enough to get a national tournament home game in any sport. This is a rare day for AEC and BU fans... hopefully they'll take advantage of it and pull out a win.
In other New England collegiate sports news:
- #15 BU, first place in Hockey East, visits UMass-Lowell tonight, a school still searching for its first league win of the year. At the beginning of the season, if you had told me that their situations would be reversed at this point in the year, I wouldn't have been in the least surprised.
- Northeastern is the last undefeated team in Hockey East. Granted, they've played the fewest games so far, but it took them 9 games last year to get their first win, so it's pretty impressive for them. They visit #6 UNH tonight.
