GILBERT, Ariz. — After last week's win over No. 2 Millersville University, the West Chester University Golden Rams made their move into first place on the Penn Monto/NFHCA Division II National Coaches Poll. West Chester is the only remaining undefeated NCAA Division II team in the country at 9-0.
Games to Watch
The game to watch this week is a rematch of a September contest between No. 3 East Stroudsburg University and No. 5 Kutztown University. In September, Kutztown took ESU to double overtime and gave the Warriors their only loss of the season. Tonight at 7:00 p.m. EST the two will meet again, this time the game will count toward the all-important Pennsylvania State Athletic Conference standings (watch in person at Kutztown University or online, here).
On Saturday, field hockey fans will not want to miss the 3:00 p.m. EST contest between No. 8 Assumption College and No. 7 Adelphi University — both teams are 6-1 in the Northeast-10 Conference and will be fighting for second place in the NE-10 standings (watch in person at Adelphi or online, here).
