MIDDLEBURY — The Middlebury College women’s soccer team won two recent NESCAC contests to clinch first place in the league and home-field advantage throughout the league playoffs. The winner of the league postseason clinches an NCAA Division III tournament berth.
The Panthers (10-1-2, 8-1 NESCAC) are ranked No. 14 in NCAA D-III and are unbeaten since a 1-0 overtime loss at Amherst in their season opener. Middlebury returns to action this Saturday at Wesleyan, and will host a NESCAC quarterfinal on Nov. 2.
