After earning two victories and scoring five goals in two games this past week, men’s soccer posted their strongest week of the 2014 season to date. With the pair of wins, the Jeffs improved to 4-0-1 on the season (3-0-1 in the NESCAC) and extended their NESCAC unbeaten streak to 24 games.

While the Jeffs tied the Camels at home in a double overtime game in 2013, Amherst would not settle for anything less than a victory this past Wednesday.

Early on in the game, midfielder Milton Rico ’15 gave the Jeffs a lead they would not relinquish against the Camels.

The Amherst men’s soccer team went to overtime in both of the squad’s first two matches of the 2014 season.

This past Sunday, the Jeffs tied the Middlebury Panthers, 1-1, to kick off NESCAC conference play, bringing Amherst’s record to 1-0-1 (0-0-1 in NESCAC play) to start off the season.

Amherst men’s basketball’s hopes of repeating as national champions came to end on Friday night in Salem, Va. at the hands of archival Williams in the Jeffs’ second straight trip to the Final Four and sixth appearance in the national semifinals since 2004.

Without the presence of both sophomore guard/forward Connor Green and sophomore forward Ben Pollack, Amherst’s depth was tested by a talented and athletic York squad.
