Week 5 Flybys, midweek edition
Snapshots of the D-III soccer landscape as we flyby
countless matches, high-profile and off-the-beaten
path alike, on a quick transcontinental trip.
By Christan Shirk

In what may or may not become a regular feature, we will run down a whole host of results from across the nation, "flybys" if you will, with brief comments that hopefully are informative, insightful, and interesting.  The intent is to give snapshots of the enitre D-III soccer landscape, covering important high profile matches but also going off the beaten path as much as possible as we criss-cross the country.

Monday, September 26

Anna Maria 2, Eastern Nazarene 1 – The victory was the first in 2011 for Anna Maria (1-8-1) who found their match in Eastern Nazarene (1-8-0).

New York Univ. 3, Hunter 0 – After terrible start to season, NYU (4-3-1) wins third straight heading into conference play.

Bethel 0, Northwestern (Minn.) 0 (2OT) – Bethel (6-1-2) had already doubled their win total from 2010, but they will have few better chances to add to that tally than this one.

Hey Christan,

I love the flybys.  Keep it up.  It really gives a feel for what is going on around the company...puts sort of a face on some teams I only know by name.

Friday, September 30

No. 1 Messiah 6, Widener 1 – Messiah (9-0-1) spoils Widener’s Homecoming with a dominating performance in the Commonwealth Conference opener for both teams.

No. 5 Trinity (Texas) 3, Centre 0 – The SCAC regular season opened with Trinity riding a 50-game unbeaten streak (49-0-1) in conference.  Last conference rival to knock them off?  Centre back in 2005 in Danville, KY.  After a tightly played first half that saw Trinity (6-0-2) edge ahead with a late goal, the Tigers took over the game in the second stanza.  Nevertheless they didn't put Centre away until the 84th minute when Brian Hines went into the record books with two goals in 11 seconds, the second-fastest consecutive goals scored by one player in NCAA Division III history.

Oglethorpe 3, Austin 1 – Oglethorpe opened SCAC play with a win and at 7-2-0 are on their way to their first winning season in five years.  Whether they can improve on their fifth place in the conference standings in that winning (13-6-0) 2006 season is yet to be seen, but it will be necessary if they are to take part in the first-ever SCAC conference tournament.
