In case you haven’t seen the big “Ever True” banner in the Ratty, or the life-size pictures of the soccer players posted on the door’s of that same dining hall, or you haven’t been following the Herald’s coverage, or you just generally live under a rock, we’d like you to know that the men’s soccer team is battling Dartmouth for the Ivy League title this weekend in its final home game of the season. It’s pretty rare that such a straightforward clash for the title takes place, so you should come out and cheer for your fellow classmates. If soccer just isn’t your sport, here are the other matches taking place on Brown soil this weekend:
Friday, Nov. 11
The men’s basketball season starts at 5pm against Johnson and Wales. We hope the Wildcats enjoy the wild five minute drive up the massive hill.
Women’s ice hockey faces off against RPI at 7pm. With a 1-2-2 record, the squad seems to have already improved over last season. We’re not going to say that’s not sad.
Women’s basketball tips off against the University of New Hampshire at 7:30. We’re officially in winter sport land here.
Saturday, Nov. 12
Football looks to tackle its second-to-last Ivy opponent of the season, Dartmouth, on Senior Day. Twenty eight seniors will be honored. That’s enough to field . . . any other sports team’s roster. Kickoff is at 12:30pm at Brown Stadium.
The big epic Ivy League men’s soccer showdown against Dartmouth is at 4pm at Stevenson Field. ‘Nough said.
Women’s hockey is also competing at 4pm against Union. We hope they get a few fans.
The wrestling team’s season begins in Binghamton, N.Y., at the Bearcat Open. Your other cute and cuddly Bears, like the squash squads, volleyball team, women’s crew and equestrian team, will be competing elsewhere. Think of a bear riding a horse, and cheer for them in your hearts.
