The Jeffs defeated the Cardinals 2-0 in Saturday’s Homecoming NESCAC matchup.

Before the game, the team honored the six senior players who will graduate from the team at the end of this season: Chrissy Cantore, Stephanie Clegg, Carly Dudzik, Rachel Lupien, Sarah McCarrick and Casey Silver.

At the conclusion of the ceremony, the Jeffs went to work on their 10th win, which would secure hosting rights for their NESCAC quarterfinal game next weekend.

Mozart’s “Don Giovanni,” one of the three celebrated Da Ponte operas, is currently featured at the Metropolitan Opera in New York City; if you’re interested, the Cinemark at Hampshire Mall is having a live screening of the matinée performance on Oct. 29, starting at 1 p.m.

Despite hosting only about 4.5 percent of the world’s population, the United States is responsible for consuming 24 percent of the Earth’s total petrolium-based energy. According to PBS, per capita, this amounts to the average American consuming roughly the same amount of energy as two Japanese, six Mexicans, 13 Chinese, 31 Indians, 128 Bangladeshis, 207 Tanzanians or 370 Ethiopians. Consumption doesn’t stop at fuel; we consume 30 percent of the world’s paper, 20 percent of its metals and 60 percent of its illicit drugs (though odds are that this isn’t as harmful to the rest of the world).

Halloween and horror movies go together like Will Smith and the Fourth of July: it just feels wrong to have one without the other. There’s nothing to send the chills down your spine like turning out all the lights and curling up with your favorite frightful flick in anticipation of a sleepless night (and you will not be able to blame that midterm this time).

As October hits Massachusetts in full force, the football team is beginning to catch its stride and look like a force in the NESCAC. After a pair of victories to open up the season, the Jeffs pushed their record to 4-0 in the last two weeks, triumphing over both Middlebury and Colby.

Last year, the women’s soccer team struggled to an 8-7-2 record, failed to qualify for the NCAA Tournament, and ended its season with a tough 1-0 loss to Williams in the NESCAC Championship Game.

The Jeffs vowed to change the script this season. So far, the results have been spectacular.

After enduring a grueling two-week span that included four key away NESCAC games, the men’s soccer team remains undefeated. After drawing with rival Williams, the Lord Jeffs proceeded to defeat Trinity, Colby and Bowdoin in succession. The No. 4 Jeffs (11-0-1, 7-0-1 NESCAC) have climbed into a first-place tie with No. 9 Wesleyan, setting up a blockbuster matchup between the two teams on Homecoming weekend.
