At 7-0-0 (4-0-0 NESCAC), Amherst is ranked fourth nationally in the latest NSCAA Coaches poll. The Lord Jeffs enter tonight's game on the heels of a 3-0 win over Tufts and a 4-1 win over Gordon. Amherst is lead by Jae Heo and Spencer Noon, who are tied for the team lead with five goals and 24 points each.

Lesley looks to build momentum following Saturday night's overtime win. Ari Sinanis scored the game-winning goal with 1:39 left in overtime, cashing in on a penalty kick after a Blazers handball in the keeper box. Elms took a 1-0 lead into halftime, but Ali Sozeri's eighth goal of the season tied the contest at 1-1, and Sinanis's PK upped the Lynx to 7-2-1 and 1-1 in NECC play with a win in the team's home opener.
