Senior Day

Prior to the start of Saturday's match, the Spartans will recognize the six graduating players from the 2017 squad – forward Michael Balog, goalkeeper Calvin Boyle, midfielder Paul Darmstadter, goalkeeper Christian Grimme, forward Alex Keller-Biehl and defender Jack Rademacher.

The six players have helped the Spartans compile 32 wins over the past four years. With their contributions, the team has appeared in the United Soccer Coaches (formerly NSCAA) National Poll as high as No. 16 during the 2015 season, while consistently ranking among the top teams in the Great Lakes Region. In addition, the team has excelled academically, recording the third best GPA of all Division III teams in the 2015-16 season.

CWRU Spartans (6-9-2, 2-4-0 UAA)

The Spartans dropped a 2-0 contest to the University of Rochester on Friday evening. Sophomore Zachary Senft led the Spartans with two shots on goal, while Rademacher, freshman Connor Weber and sophomore Marques Manta each recorded on shot on goal.

CWRU won a 3-2 double overtime thriller against the Emory University Eagles on Sunday afternoon. Balog connected on a header off a corner kick by Weber just over three minutes into the second overtime period to give the Spartans the 'golden goal' victory. Darmstadter and Senft accounted for CWRU's first two goals, with Darmstadter scoring in the 18th minute and Senft tallying a goal in the 53rd minute of play.

Carnegie Mellon Tartans (10-3-3, 2-2-2 UAA)

The Tartans played to a 2-2 double overtime draw against Emory on Friday. CMU got on the board in the 16th minute via a goal from sophomore Cooper Tubiana. Junior Zack Masciopinto scored the second goal, his team-leading eighth goal of the season, less than two minutes later. Emory responded with two goals in the second half, and that score would hold for the remainder of the game.

CMU played to its second tie of a UAA home weekend when they played to a 1-1 tie against the University of Rochester on Sunday. The Tartans scored first when senior Ryan Stinebaugh found the back of the net in the 31st minute. Rochester evened the game at 1-1 in the 76th minute and the two teams would battle to a stalemate for the rest of the game.
