This Saturday Middlebury, the New England #2 seed, takes on the New York #2 seed, Hamiltion, at the Tree Farm fields in Essex Junction (click here for directions). Kick-off at 1 PM. It will be the end of the season for one of the teams with the winner going on to the NRU Championship weekend at UMass-Amherst on November 14 and 15 where the top 3 out of the 4 teams competing will qualify for the National tournament in the spring. The MCRC will be looking forward to the return of some key starters (7 starters were missing from their last game) but they may be without the services of others who were injured in this past weekend’s games. Playoff time is when teams show their depth and Middlebury is certainly being tested on this front but when the whistle blows there are no excuses – the 15 on the field are the 15 on the field.
