BIG match Saturday!

Wofford's 3-0 win at VMI yesterday, coupled with Mercer's 2-1 loss to Furman gives the Terriers a chance to win the regular season SoCon title Saturday vs. Furman. If we win and Mercer loses to ETSU, we finish in 1st place! If we win and Mercer wins, we finish in 2nd place, which still gives us a very important first round tournament bye. If we lose to the Furples, we finish third and must play a first round match in the tourney- something I know the team wants to avoid. So this is a very important match as a first round bye is at stake, with a chance to win the league as an added bonus! Not to mention we have a shot to sweep the Furples- which would be very sweet in any circumstance! The football team has a bye Saturday, so this would be a great chance for the students and Wofford community to go to Synder Field and cheer on our soccer Terriers against the Paladins at Synder Field 7PM on Saturday!

Terriers add to Furman's misery after the VMI football debacle by beating the Paladins 1-0 and completing a season sweep over the Furples. Furman showed very poor sportsmanship. They attacked Matthew Aurednick late in the game (though it was us that got a yellow card for retaliating). Then after the game Furman players started screaming at one of the refs. I thought they were about to attack the guy! It is clear they HATE losing to us, and that makes it that much more fun! With this win, the Dogs clinch a bye in the SoCon tourney. If ETSU can beat or tie Mercer, we win the regular season for the second season in a row! But ETSU trailed Mercer 1-0 at halftime of their match. In any event, I think we have a great shot to win the tourney, especially now that we got that all important bye. FU will have to play an extra tourney match now as they finish third!

Update- Mercer beats ETSU 1-0 to win the regular season. Wofford is second and Furman third. We get the winner of #3 Furman vs. #6 VMI, so most likely our next match will be a rematch against an angry Paladin team. But I know we'll be ready!
