South Atlantic Week in Review- Week 7

By D3soccer.com Contributor

The Game of the Week in the South Atlantic this week belonged to two ODAC powerhouses - one an established behemoth and one a fresh face ready to prove their place at the top of the ODAC table. In the end, both found themselves looking up in the standings at two new leaders in the conference.

The Lions host two games this week, the first a non-conference matchup with the Stevens Ducks (10-2-0 / 6-0-0) Wednesday night before welcoming the Montclair State Red Hawks (9-3-3 / 4-2-1) Saturday evening for NJAC play.
