11/22 - GEF Round 1 Preview
Updated: Jan 29
For the third year in a row after winning the Empire 8 championship, the Brockport Golden Eagles have advanced to the NCAA Division III Tournament, but for the first time in the first round of this string of appearances, they will be on the road, as they take on the Western New England Golden Bears in Springfield, Massachusetts.
Western New England makes it to their 6th appearance in the big dance, after winning the Commonwealth Coast Conference going a perfect 7-0 in league play. The Golden Bears come in 9-1 overall, with the lone loss coming by an FCS team.
This is the first matchup between these two teams in program history, and we spoke with Brockport offensive lineman and Empire 8 First Team Offense Selection Luke Lodini on his thoughts of Western New England after watching film.
Pre-game is at 11:30 am with kickoff at noon on 89.1 The Point, 891thepoint.com, and on the RadioMax app!
