New England D3 Football Teams Of 2018

NS Teams Of 2018

By NoontimeSports | @NoontimeSports 

Earlier this week, SB Nation posted its college football ‘Teams of 2018 for all 50 states,’ including six teams that represented our New England region.

MIT was tabbed the team of the year from Massachusetts, while Salve Regina represented Rhode Island and Middlebury College secured the nod for Vermont.

This particular post had us thinking who would we pick as our 2018 New England D3 Football Teams of the Year?

Well, we gave it some thought and have provided the answers below!

Let us know what you think by posting a comment or sending us a tweet to @NoontimeSports or @Noontime_FB. 


Connecticut Team of the Year: Trinity College. Once again, the Bantams captured the New England Small College Athletic Conference (NESCAC) crown with an 8-1 record. They should once again be the team to beat next fall.

Connecticut Honorable Mentions: Coast Guard Academy and Western Connecticut. 

Maine Team of the Year: Husson University. In his final years with the Eagles, coach Gabby Price guided the Green and Gold to an Eastern Collegiate Football Conference (ECFC) crown, as well as a second-straight appearance in the NCAA Tournament.

Maine Honorable Mentions: Colby College. 

Massachusetts Team of the Year: MIT. In his first year as head coach, Brian Bubna guided the Engineers to their first-ever New England Women’s and Men’s Athletic Conference (NEWMAC) title, as well as an appearance in the NCAA Tournament. The Engineers finished its 2018 campaign 9-1 and 6-1 in league play.

Massachusetts Honorable Mentions: Amherst College, Bridgewater State, Endicott College, Framingham State, Springfield College, Tufts University and Western New England. 

New Hampshire Team of the Year: Plymouth State. The Panthers are the lone New England D3 team in the Granite State, so they automatically receive our special honor. Plymouth State concluded its past campaign 6-4 overall and 5-3 in the Massachusetts State Collegiate Athletic Conference (MASCAC). Their signature win of the 2018 season came on a rainy day in Framingham last October.

Rhode Island Team of the Year: Salve Regina. Similar to Plymouth State, Salve Regina is the lone D3 team in the Ocean State, so they get the nod from us as well like they did from SB Nation. Coach Kevin Gilmartin‘s unit overcame a 2-3 start to finish the 2018 season with a 7-4 record. They secured a spot in one of the three New England Bowl games following an exciting win in November over Endicott College.

Vermont Team of the Year: Middlebury College. The Panthers secured the nod from SB Nation and now us, too, after for posting the best record among all three teams in the Green Mountain State. Their biggest win from 2018 came last October when Will Jernigan led the Blue and White to a 21-10 win at Williams College.

Vermont Honorable Mention: Norwich University.

The fifth week of the New England D3 Hockey season has officially concluded, which means it is time for us to dish out our latest Men’s Top 10 Poll!

Trinity College remained our top team for the second-straight week after scoring a pair of post-Thanksgiving Day wins over Aurora and St. Anselm‘s. Their seven-goal victory over the Hawks was their biggest win of the season, which included a two-goal performance from Andy Chugg.

This week, the Bantams will host tenth-ranked Hamilton College, which made its initial appearance on our poll, followed Amherst College, which is one of four teams ‘on the rise.’

Salve Regina and University of New England continue to be the second and third best teams in the region, while Plymouth State moved-up following back-to-back wins over Castleton University and Salem State. The Panthers return to the ice on Thursday when they host Framingham State for the Teddy Bear Toss (fans attending the game are encouraged to bring a teddy bear or stuffed animal and throw them on the ice following the home team’s initial goal. The toys will be collected after the goal is recorded and will be donated to the Children’s Hospital at Dartmouth (CHaD)).

The fourth week of the New England D3 Hockey season has officially concluded, which means it is time for us to dish out our latest Men’s Top 10 Poll!

Trinity College enjoyed a successful start to its 2018-19 campaign by outscoring Connecticut College and Tufts University by a combined score of 7-0. Sophomore Nichols Fiorentino registered four points on three goals and one assist in his team’s first two contests, while junior Barclay Gammill added two goals.

This week, the Bantams visit Nazareth on Tuesday before returning to the ice this weekend with home dates against Aurora and Saint Anselm. The Bantams will then cap their first month of play next Friday, November 30th with a home game against Hamilton College, which is one of three teams ‘on the rise.’

After skating to a 2-2 tie earlier this month, Babson College has appeared unstoppable, winning some important conference games, including a pair this weekend against Johnson & Wales and Suffolk University. Five different skaters located the back of the net for Babson, while first-year Ryan Black registered two assists.

Finally, Williams College capped its first weekend with two important wins, including a 4-3 win over Colby College last Saturday, which saw senior Marcus Mollica record two goals, including the go-ahead (and eventual game-winner) on the power play in the third period.
