Soccer exhibitions & the pre-season NIT

BC men's soccer had its first exhibition game on Monday, taking on Southern Connecticut in Newton. I can't find the result on the BC or SCSU site, but it doesn't really matter anyway.

This weekend, I will be in Toronto, enjoying a brief getaway. I'm excited about this, but disappointed that I will be missing the first real game of the season: women's soccer @ BU on Saturday night.

There will also be two exhibition games at the Heights this weekend: men's soccer vs. Northeastern on Friday, and field hockey vs. Connecticut on Sunday.

In other news, the preseason NIT schedule has been released. BC hosts the east regional on November 16 & 17, taking on Loyola (MD) in the opener; if BC gets past Loyola, they will face the winner of St. John's vs. Cornell.

The semifinals & finals are at MSG on November 26 & 28 - a worthwhile road trip, perhaps, although it would be hard to do in mid-week.

hopefully the Eagles make it to MSG, since they don't get to my neck of the woods very often anymore

I’m аmazed, I must say. Seldοm do I encountеr a blog thаt’s both equally educativе and amusing, and withοut
а doubt, you've hit the nail on the head. The problem is something not enough folks are speaking intelligently about. I am very happy that I came across this during my search for something concerning this.

Hey there would you mind sharing which blog platform you’re working with?
I’m
planning to start my own blog in the near
future but I’m having a tough time choosing between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal.
The reason I ask is because your layout seems different then most blogs and I’m looking for something unique.


P.S Sorry for being off-topic but I had to ask!
