The NESCAC quarterfinals didn’t have any surprising results, but the semifinals could produce some excitement for spoiler fans.
The most dominant win last weekend came from fourth-seeded Wesleyan, which dispatched Middlebury, 17-9. Wesleyan has gone through a lot of alterations this season, especially on offense.
After suffering some key injuries in the preseason, the Cardinals (12-4) had to reformulate their plan of attack … on attack. They rode the hot hand of Matt Gill (Duxbury, Mass.) through March, but when his production dipped a little, they changed to a more midfield-heavy offense, and they were able to stack their goals and runs.
Meanwhile, top-seeded Tufts' quarterfinal win over Conn. College, 19-14, was a little closer than it would have liked.
