Men’s Soccer to Host NCAA Sweet 16 Sunday

The Bears will face No. 8 Saint Mary’s (Calif.) in the Sweet 16 round of the NCAA tournament at home tomorrow at 5 p.m..

The squad is coming off a 1-0 upset victory over St. John’s in the second round of the tournament, with the lone goal coming from Dylan Remick ’13.  In the opening round against Fairfield, the Bears battled back from a 2-0 deficit, striking three times in the last 16 minutes to clinch the win.

The squad was named Ivy League co-Champions alongside Dartmouth after finishing 10-4-3 overall and earning a 4-1-2 record in league play. While the Big Green clinched an automatic bid into the tournament, Bruno was forced to await the results of the NCAA selection show to learn that it had earned an at-large bid.

Bruno faced a similar scenario last season when it earned an at-large bid and went on defeat No. 25 Boston College and No. 9 University of Connecticut before falling to No. 6 UC Berkeley in the Sweet 16.
