Note: Submissions received after the first game begins will not be considered.
Hook: Coming off its win at NYIT two weeks ago, Post (10-1, 3-0) now controls its own destiny in the tight East Coast Conference race. But the Pioneers have stumbled in each of the past three years against Mercyhurst (9-2, 3-1), including an 8-1 shellacking last year in Erie. The game features two of the best goalies in the division with CWP's Daniel Sciulla and 'Hurst's All-American Jason Lashomb.
MD1: No. 18 Bucknell at No. 13 Colgate - Saturday, 1 p.m.
Hook: The Ivy League’s lone remaining undefeated teams (in conference, that is) meet for an inside track to its automatic bid. While either team would be in good standing for an at-large berth, seeding elements are at play, too. Cornell can assure itself of at least a share of its seventh straight Ivy League title with a win. Neither team has played Brown. The Big Red is unbeaten at home this year and is 48-10 all-time at Schoellkopf Field.
WD1: No. 7 Princeton at No. 14 Dartmouth - Saturday, 1 p.m.
Hook: Dartmouth is dangling in that dangerous at-large territory. With Penn wrapping up the Ivy League title and AQ earlier this week (courtesy of a win over Princeton; smarting much?), this game has rather significant at-large implications. Will three Ivies go to the NCAA tournament? Princeton holds a slim 19-16 win over Dartmouth in the all-time series that began in 1980. The Tigers started the series on a 5-0 streak, before the Big Green rattled off five straight wins. Dartmouth has won four of the last five meetings, including a 13-12 victory last season.
Hook: Navy hopes to continue one streak (a three-game winning streak) and end another (a 35-game losing streak to Hopkins) behind its revived defense that downright smothered Army at Smartlink Day of Rivals last week. Also hot for the Mids is second-line midfielder Brian Striffler, who has scored a point in eight consecutive games. Hopkins is centering this game around homecoming festivities at Homewood Field, so expect a vibrant (and perhaps imbibed) crowd.
MD1: Lafayette at Lehigh - Saturday 7 p.m.
WD1: No. 1 Northwestern at No. 10 Virginia - Saturday, 7 p.m.
WD1: No. 15 Stanford at No. 4 North Carolina - Sunday, 1 p.m.
