WILDCATS LEAD DIVISION I IN GOALS AGAINST AVERAGE
MISSION, Kan. - Despite a 1-0 loss at Albany last weekend, the University of New Hampshire men's soccer team remains in the national rankings, placing 24th in the latest National Soccer Coaches Association of America (NSCAA)/adidas poll, one spot lower than last week.
The Wildcats moved up in the NSCAA/adidas regional ranking, tying the University of Connecticut for first place in the New England rankings. This comes after a 1-1 week in which UNH defeated regional rival UMass, 2-0, before falling in its America East opener on the road.
New Hampshire, 6-1-1 entering another regional contest at Northeastern on Tuesday, finds itself at the top of the NCAA Division I statistical rankings for goals against average with a 0.24 GAA. The Wildcats are second in the country in shutout percentage (0.75) and in save percentage (.913).
Individually, UNH junior goalie Brian Levey (Pittsburgh, Pa.) is fifth in Division I in goals against average with a 0.243 GAA and seventh in save percentage at .909. Levey leads America East in goals against average.
The Wildcats return home for a key conference contest Saturday, Oct. 1, against the Vermont Catamounts, presently sixth in the New England rankings with a 6-3 record. This America East match will begin at 7 p.m. at Bremner Field.
