Upstate Update - Week 7
By Mani Tafari
The Upstate Update brings you up to speed on Division III men's soccer in the "Upstate" New York region, home to the SUNYAC, Liberty League, and Empire 8. Several key matches will be recapped each week along with a more in-depth look at a Game of the Week.
Game of the Week
Vassar at St. Lawrence
Saturday, October 13
Two of the top teams in the Liberty League did battle in this week’s GOTW.
For almost a generation, these two teams have been at the top end of the Liberty League table and were seeking to dominate yet again in 2018.
The Season Thus Far
Vassar began the season in a very strong manner and entering the weekend had only suffered losses to Oneonta and Stevens, two consistent dancers. Likewise, St. Lawrence entered the weekend with two losses on the year, one of which was to the Cortland Red Dragons. Both teams entered the game aware that too many blemishes will mean they must capture the conference tournament for the season to be considered anything close to a success.
