Men's Soccer To Battle St. Bonaventure On The Road Sunday
Nov. 2, 2013
AMHERST, Mass. -- The Massachusetts men's soccer team has three games remaining in the regular-season, but Sunday's contest on the road against St. Bonaventure could be the most important in terms of qualifying for the conference tournament.
UMass is 2-3 in Atlantic 10 play with six points and tied for eighth place with Duquesne. Any opportunity the Minutemen have to solidify their postseason standing is huge, especially since only the top eight (of 12) qualify for the A-10 Championship in two weeks.
UMass and SBU will meet at Bradford (Pa.) High School on Sunday due to poor playing conditions at the Bonnies' home field. Kickoff is set for Noon.
The Bonnies are in sixth place at 2-2-1 with seven points thus far. SBU has one of the most potent offenses in the country, ranking 41st with 1.7 goals per game. Three players have at least four goals apiece.
UMass will return home to Rudd Field next weekend for a pair of games against Dayton and Saint Louis. The Minutemen have won their last three at home.
