Men's Soccer Hosts Tommies

Mens soccer BV

Can lightning hit the same spot twice? The Piper men's soccer team hopes so. The last time they played at Paterson Field, Hamline marched away with a 3-2 win over previously undefeated Buena Vista. The Pipers face another power this time with a lot more on the line ... namely, an elusive first conference victory.

St. Thomas is the one team in the MIAC with a spotless league mark (3-0-0, 6-2-2 overall). The Tommies visit Paterson Saturday at 1:00 p.m. to face a HU team that is 2-7-1 overall (0-4 in the MIAC). But both of the Piper triumphs have come on the home sod. Overall, HU is 2-2-1 at home. With five of the next six matches on their home pitch, the Pipers approach the second half of the season looking to extend that record.

Game time is 1:00 p.m. A live stats link is available on the front page of the website.

The Pipers then get a week off before resuming action October 6 at St. Mary's.
