Last week, the Amherst College men’s soccer team played three tough matches, with two of the three battles going into overtime. Recording two wins and one loss, the Mammoths are now 4-2-2 in NESCAC play and sit comfortably fourth in the league standings.

This past weekend, the Mammoths traveled to Maine for a doubleheader against Colby and Bates. Amherst suffered only their second loss of the season on Saturday, as the Mules managed to pull out a 2-1 overtime victory.

Continuing the momentum from their strong showing at the New England Regional Championship, Amherst men’s tennis had a great weekend at the MIT Invitational led by Zach Bessette ’19 and the doubles pair of Jayson Fung ’20 and Ethan Hillis ’21.

In the singles competition, Amherst represented three of the top fifteen seeds, with No. 5 seed Bessette, No. 11 Kevin Ma ’21 and No. 15 Sean Wei ’21. All three advanced to at least the round of 16, where they were joined by fellow Mammoth Nathan Kaplan ’20.

The Amherst College women’s volleyball team snapped a four-game losing streak this weekend with a NESCAC win over Williams.

Before facing off with Williams, however, the Firedogs endured two tough away losses against strong opponents: Clark University and Hamilton.

Against the Clark Cougars, Amherst played well in an evenly contested match, but dropped a tight first two sets and ultimately fell 3-1 (17-25, 21-25, 25-12, 20-25). In the third set, the Firedogs showed tenacity and grit to avoid the sweep.

This past week, the Amherst field hockey team added both a win and a loss to its season record. On Saturday, Sept. 30, Amherst suffered a loss to fellow No. 6-ranked NESCAC rival Tufts, in a conference game.

The game ended as a shutout, with the final score being 2-0. Goalie Emilie Flamme ’20 saved seven shots again but it was not enough to secure the win. The Jumbos took the lead in the first five minutes of the game, and the Mammoths were never able to regain it.

This past weekend, the Amherst women’s tennis team returned to Williams College to compete in the 2017 ITA Regional Championships. After a three-day long battle, the Mammoths finished with strong performances in both the singles and doubles matches. The team ended the tournament with an 8-6 record in singles play and 5-3 in doubles. Amherst traveled to the Regional Championship with seven of its varsity athletes Friday afternoon.

Amherst women’s soccer split this past weekend’s games, dropping Saturday’s match against Tufts 2-1 in overtime before bouncing back on Sunday to dominate New England College.

Against the Jumbos, Amherst was first to get on the board with Hannah Guzzi ’18 tallying her eighth goal of the season in the 79th minute of action.

Unfortunately, the Mammoths were unable to maintain the lead and the Jumbos answered with a goal of their own less than five minutes later.

The Amherst football team totaled a season-high 464 yards of offense on Saturday, propelling the squad to a 31-14 win against the Bowdoin Polar Bears.

On the Mammoths’ first drive of the game, Ollie Eberth ’20 found Jack Hickey ’19 for an 11-yard gain, an auspicious start for the potent Amherst offense. On the very next play, Hickey took Eberth’s hand off and showcased his ability by cutting up the middle and going 52 yards to the end zone, giving Amherst the 7-0 lead.
