Alright, you ready for this? Hit me with your best shot.
Denver vs. Albany
The battle of slick sticks and box moves has arrived. Each team has plenty of fans and believers, but who has the horses? Really like how Albany is playing the game right now! Danes 14-12.
Maryland vs. Cornell
UMD vs Cornell is the battle of #1 Poll teams. For much of the season the Terps and Big Red were the easy #1s, now they play each other early in a lower seeded game. Who wins this parity fest game? Cornell 12-11 (OT).
Le Moyne vs. LIU Post
Upstate Vs Long Island? One State……… UpState! Dolphins 13-11.
Limestone vs. Seton Hill
Limestone is the sole true Southern team left. Seton Hill is looking to go to uncharted territory. Who wins, the newbie, or the veteran squad? Limestone wins 15-8.
Tufts vs. Stevens Inst.
A rematch of the March decision that went in favor of Tufts 18-14. These two high powered offenses will square off in the second round of the NCAA D3 Tournament. Tufts wins 12-9.
WAC vs. Stevenson
Washington College has shown it can hang with the top teams this year, beating Salisbury 7-6 and Washington & Lee 8-4. Will the Shoremen be able to upset another big name though? Not so fast… Stevenson wins 13-9.
OCC vs. Essex
These two played a tight game, can Essex take it to the next level and actually knock off OCC? Again, One State……… UpState! OCC 16-13.
Genesee vs. Nassau
This could be the JuCo game of the year! Up and comer in Genesee against an established dynasty. Who’s trending higher? I do think that Nassau is the better team, however, each week I need to have an upset pick and this is mine this week. Genesee wins 10-9.
Regis Jesuit vs. Mullen (CO)
Regis took the earlier game 9-8 in OT, will they pull it out again or will Mullen come back with a vengeance? I can’t guess Regis when I spent a season at the helm for Mullen. Mullen wins 10-8 this time around.
Olympus vs. Brighton (UT)
12-3 Brighton takes on 12-6 Olympus. Brighton took a comfortable 9-5 win earlier this month but Olympus is on a three game winning streak, averaging 12.6 goals for and only 6.3 against. Brighton will prove to be a bit too much again, 12-10 final.
