Pairings Set For NCAA New England Regional

November 11th, 1998 by Adam

PLYMOUTH, N.H. – The pairings are now set for the NCAA Division III New England men’s soccer regional to be held this weekend at Plymouth State
College.

Top-seeded Plymouth State (16-0-2) will face fourth-seeded Amherst College (13-2) Saturday at 11:00 a.m. at Panther Field, with second-seeded
Middlebury College (13-1) battling third-seeded Williams College (14-1) in the other semi-final Saturday at 1:30 p.m. (or 30 minutes following the conclusion of the
first game). The two semi-final winners will meet Sunday at 12:00 noon at Panther Field for the New England regional crown.

Amherst advanced past the opening round Wednesday with a 2-1 victory over Keene State College in Amherst, Mass. Williams also advanced Wednesday
with a 2-0 win over Bowdoin College in Williamstown, Mass.

Wednesday’s verdict sets up a rematch of last year’s regional final, when Amherst knocked off Plymouth State 3-2 at Bowdoin. Amherst went on to the
Division III Final Four before being eliminated by the College of New Jersey, 2-1.

There were 319 schools eligible for the NCAA Division III men’s soccer tournament, and 40 received invitations in eight regions. Wheaton College of
Illinois is the defending national champion.

Ticket prices for this weekend’s games have been set at $4 for adults, $2 for students, and $1 for children under 12.
