Men’s Soccer Recognized for Least Amount of Cards in Nation, Second in Fair Play Rankings

DURHAM, N.H. – The National Soccer Coaches Association of America (NSCAA) announced that the University of New Hampshire men's soccer team finished with the least amount of cards received in the nation for the 2013 season.

"I'm proud of the fact that our players play as hard as anyone in the nation, but also do so with discipline and fair play," said head coach Rob Thompson. "This is the 12th consecutive year we have the best discipline record in America East and continues our tradition of leading by example."

The Wildcats finished the 2013 season with just five yellow cards and zero red cards. The five yellow cards gave New Hampshire a Fair Play rating of 10.9 to finish second in the nation. Indiana finished first with a rating of 10.3. The Fair Play rating is calculated by multiplying fouls by one, red cards by 25, all divided by the number of games played

UNH also finished the year with the second least amount of fouls committed nationally (146) and least in the America East Conference.
