Men's Soccer Ranked Seventh

BRUNSWICK, Maine - The Bowdoin College men's soccer team, off to a 3-0 start this season, have been ranked seventh in the latest national poll released on Tuesday. The poll is coordinated by the National Soccer Coaches Association of America.

The Polar Bears, who face Southern Maine on Tuesday afternoon, peaked at number five in the national polls last season, and are ranked first in New England entering play this week. The Polar Bears have won 11 straight regular season games, and including their appearance in the NESCAC and NCAA Tournaments last year, the Polar Bears are 13-1-2 in their last 16 games, dating back to September of 2003.

Bowdoin gets the chance to avenge their last defeat when they travel to play at Williams on Sunday, September 26. The Ephs (ranked ninth in the nation) defeated the Polar Bears 1-0 for the NESCAC Championship last season.
