Men's Soccer Games To Watch This Week Oct.2 - Oct.8

FloFC is broadcasting college soccer matches from NCAA Divisions I, II and III all season long, with each week bringing a new, exciting slate of matchups to check out from its partner conferences.

Here’s a look ahead at the games to watch for the week ahead in the BIG EAST, CAA, GLIAC, SAC and Landmark Conference:

BIG EAST: UConn vs. Georgetown

It’s a big week for UConn if it’s to indeed prove that it belongs in the conversation as BIG EAST favorites. A nonconference showdown at home against No. 14 Vermont is first, followed by a trip to the nation’s capital to face the No. 12 Hoyas, who are unbeaten in their past six matches. Recently named BIG EAST Goalkeeper of the Week Jayden Hibbert has been as sure-handed as they come for the Huskies, though, posting three shutouts as he’ll try this weekend to stifle GU’s attack.

CAA: Monmouth vs. Hofstra 

The Pride’s talisman, Ryan Carmichael, is tied for the league lead as of this writing with nine goals on the year. The man he’s tied with? Monmouth’s Ben Zakowski, who has found the back of the net in four straight matches as of Monday. The two best strikers in the CAA are going to go at it with plenty of implications in the league standings on the line between a pair of teams both currently unbeaten in the CAA.

GLIAC: Purdue Northwest vs. St. Cloud State

Second-placed Northwest is on the chase behind GLIAC-leading Parkside, but before it gets another crack at the Rangers, it needs to take care of a St. Cloud State team who handed it its only loss of the conference slate thus far in a 1-0 defeat last month. Back-to-back 2-0 wins against Davenport and Saginaw Valley State should have the Pride feeling good, however, heading into this weekend’s rematch with the Huskies.

SAC: Limestone vs. Wingate

Can anyone stop Limestone? The No. 5-ranked team in Division II (per the most recent United Soccer Coaches poll) has won its past three games by an incredible combined scoreline of 20-0, with 6-foot-4 forward Claudel N’goubou slotting in seven with four assists himself across just eight games played. But Wingate shut out Limestone’s electric attack when they met a season ago, too, perhaps indicating that the Bulldogs just might have the Saints’ number.

Landmark: Lycoming vs. Scranton

Following a big rivalry win against Susquehanna over the weekend, Lycoming will attempt to make it three straight conference wins to start the slate against a bit of a struggling Scranton, who is an impressive 6-1-2 overall but has gotten off to a 0-1-1 run to begin play in the Landmark. The Royals’ back line is a tough one to crack, however, having conceded only five goals thus far across nine games.
