MEN’S SOCCER MOVES UP TO NO. 5 IN REGION AND RECEIVE FIVE VOTES IN NATIONAL POLL

KANSAS CITY, KAN. - The University of New Hampshire men's soccer team moved up to No. 5 in the NSCAA/adidas Northeast Regional poll and received five votes in the national poll, which were both released Tuesday afternoon.

UNH recently locked up the top seed in the America East conference tournament and is fresh off a 2-1 victory over Binghamton University on Wednesday at Cowell Stadium.

The Wildcats, who were previously ranked seventh in the Northeast Regional poll, extended their unbeaten streak to seven games (6-0-1) to improve to 9-5-2 overall and 6-0-1 in America East. It is the first time since 1997 that a team completed the conference schedule without a loss. It is also the Wildcats' best conference record since also compiling a 6-0-1 mark in 1994.

New Hampshire plays its regular-season finale Nov. 3 against intrastate rival Dartmouth College. Game time for the Senior Day game at Bremner Field is 7 p.m.
