UPDATE – NIRSA Indoor Soccer Tournament


The first annual Goodwin-hosted Indoor Region One Soccer Tournament was held this past weekend at the Oakwood Soccer Center in Glastonbury, Connecticut. Colleges from Massachusetts, New York and Connecticut competed in a round-robin formatted playoff, culminating with the Lord Jeffs of Amherst College taking the crown.

While in the semi-finals, the Navs of Goodwin College had a 2-1 lead on Amherst with just under 3 minutes to play. Some timely passing and a quirky bounce or two netted a pair of goals for the tenacious Jeffs, in what was easily the match of the day.

Other thrillers on the pitch included SUNY New Paltz and Sacred Heart University playing to a 1-1 tie, while in a second-round contest, Fabian Brooks scored on a penalty shot as time expired to give the Navigators a 5-4 win over Sacred Heart.

Coming soon: Look for the Navs on the pitch in a Staff/Student game!
