D3 Football: Castleton Unveils 2018 Schedule

NS Schedule Breakdown

By NoontimeSports.com (@NoontimeSports) 

As we inch closer to a brand new D3 Football season, more teams are beginning to unveil their 2018 schedules, including the Castleton Spartans, which kick-off its season on Saturday, September 1st when they host Plymouth State at 1 p.m.

Plymouth State has won the past two meetings against the Spartans, but a win over the Panthers in three months would be Castleton’s first since 2015.

One week after their annual meeting with the Panthers, Castleton will hit the road for a trio of games, including a visit to Norwich on Saturday, September 15th at 2 p.m. Castleton-Norwich is always a game to watch as both teams compete for the Maple Sap Bucket Trophy. Castleton beat Norwich, 28-14, last season, thanks to a pair of rushing scores by Moe Harris.

Castleton will cap its first month of play with a visit to Misericordia before jumping into Eastern Collegiate Football Conference (ECFC) play on Saturday, October 6th when they host Anna Maria at 6 p.m. The Spartans will travel just once in October to Gallaudet, but host Maritime (N.Y.) and Husson on October 20th and 27th, respectively. 

The Spartans will cap their regular season with a pair of November games against Alfred State and Dean with hopes of competing in either the New England Bowl or NCAA Tournament on Saturday, November 17th.

Castleton finished 6-4 overall last season, including 5-2 in league play. Coach Tony Volpone returns some key pieces from last year this fall, including Harris, quarterback Mitchell Caron, wide receiver Adnane Adossama, linebacker Grant Cummings and defensive back Owen Tretter
