The Panther men’s soccer team, 9-2-1 overall and in 1st place in the LEC, is enjoying a successful season. PSC is currently ranked No. 15 in the NSCAA Men’s Division III National Rankings, and No. 2 in the New England regional poll.
Senior Brett Scaccia (15 goals, 2 assists, 32 points) and junior Shawn Higgins (7-3-17) rank No. 1 and No. 8, respectively, in the LEC in total points scored.
