The Bowdoin College men’s soccer team returns a large portion of its team that won 10 games last year and received an at-large to the NCAA Division III Tournament.

Head coach Scott Wiercinski and his Polar Bears open the season on Tuesday against the University of New England, one of four home dates to begin the campaign. The team is captained by Jake Stenquist.

2017 Recap (10-4-4) — The Polar Bears posted another successful season under Wiercinski, reaching the NCAA Tournament for the third time in the last four seasons. Bowdoin hit its stride late in the season, going 6-2-4 over its final 12 contests with its only loss over the final three weeks coming in double-overtime in the NESCAC semifinals to Middlebury. Bowdoin earned an at-large bid to the NCAA Tournament where the Polar Bears tied Rutgers- Newark, 0-0, in the opening round but dropped a penalty kick decision to finish their campaign. Seniors Riley Bubb and Stevie Van Siclen were named All-New England performers, while Bubb netted an All-American nod.

2018 Preview — Bowdoin returns numerous weapons to its 2018 roster, including All-NESCAC performers midfielder Moctar Niang and defender Matty McColl. Leading goal scorers Levi Morant and CJ Masterson also return to the squad, as do midfielders Jason Oliver and Stenquist, both of whom were fixtures in the midfield last season for the Polar Bears.

2018 Schedule — Bowdoin will open its NESCAC slate against Amherst on Sept. 8 and will host in-state foe St. Joseph’s on Sept. 9. Bowdoin closes its regular season with a three-game home stretch that includes Bates (Oct. 17), Connecticut College (Oct. 20) and Tufts (24) in a seven-day span.
