Breier’s 3/26/09 D3 Review

There were some big games this past week and they surely delivered. I wasn’t too surprised of the outcomes of these last week.  It seems that everything went as planned just like my NCAA Bracket…which I’m tied for 1st place!

In last week’s game of the week, Ithaca defeated Cortland 11-8.  These two squads will meet again sometime in May.  Middlebury made their trip to DC a success by defeating the surprising Generals of W&L 12-10.

Western New England got the best of Nazareth in a 10-9 burner.  That is a big win for WNE who cracked the Top 10 this week in the USILA polls.  And to round out the week, Stevenson continued its winning ways over Lynchburg in a 12-10 victory.

This week doesn’t offer that much in high quality match ups.  They’re all waiting until the weather gets warmer all over D3land. Or everyone’s Waiting for next week’s match up of #1 Salisbury and #2 Stevenson.

Game of the Week
NESCAC Scrap - #12 Wesleyan @ #9 Tufts
The Jumbos have steadily climbed up the polls and Wesleyan brings an extremely stingy defense.

Fightin’ for Home
#14 Haverford @ #8 Washington College
This could very well decide home field for the Centennial tournament.

Preseason Match up of the Year
#16 Gettysburg @ #1 Salisbury
This is first time in a long time that both teams weren’t in the top 5 while facing each other.  It should still be great to attend as Salisbury has their Lax Alumni weekend with a golf tournament on Friday and the honoring of the 1999 National Champions at halftime on Saturday!  I’m so there!!

    Is Salisbury even a top-10 team this year?  Their schedule has been incredibly weak, the best opponent before yesterday was Lynchburg who is a borderline top-20 team.  The rest of their schedule was unranked cupcakes.  Looks like Berkman knew he had a bad team when he put the schedule together.

    Gettysburg is a decent team, but has been blown out by Cortland, Stevenson and Haverford, the Bullets are also a borderline top-20 team, yet they beat Salisbury at Salisbury.  Ouch, looks like the Gulls have their worst team since 2001.
