By NoontimeSports.com

Welcome to the ninth week of the 2021 New England college football season — it should be another exciting week for a slew of small college teams that remain in the mix for their respective conference crown.

Like we did last week, it is time to highlight and share some thoughts on six conference races to watch in NCAA Division II and Division II.


Northeast-10 Conference (NE10)

The Leader(s): Bentley University (7-0, 5-0) and University of New Haven (6-1, 5-0)

In the Hunt: Assumption College (4-3, 4-1)

Matchups to watch this week:

  • Franklin Pierce University at Bentley (Oct. 30 at 1 p.m.)
  • Assumption at New Haven (Oct. 30 at 1 p.m.)

Synopsis: We’re one week away from what should be the de-facto conference championship game between Bentley and New Haven – the game will take place in Connecticut, not Massachusetts. But instead of looking ahead to the tenth week of the season, let’s worry about this week’s games.

Bentley returns from a bye week looking to continue its early (and yes, mid-season) momentum against a Ravens squad that has yet to win a game. As for Assumption, this is a must-win game against a Chargers squad that has not lost a game this month. In fact, the last time the Chargers dropped a game was last month.

Assumption enters this week’s contest with New Haven having won four of their last five contests. They lost to Stonehill College, a team New Haven beat last weekend, at the end of September.

As of now, we’re thinking Bentley and New Haven will win their respective week nine matchups, but don’t rule out a potential surprise on Saturday.


Commonwealth Coast Football (CCC)

The Leader: Salve Regina University (7-1, 3-1)

In the Hunt: Endicott College (6-2, 3-1), Husson University (5-2, 2-1), and Western New England (5-3, 3-1)

Matchups to watch this week:

  • Husson at Nichols College (Oct. 30 at 12 p.m.)
  • University of New England at Endicott (Oct. 30 at 12 p.m.)
  • Curry College at Salve Regina (Oct. 30 at 12 p.m.

Synopsis: With a come-from-behind win last week against Endicott, the Seahawks of Salve Regina head into the ninth week with a great deal of momentum. However, they need to score back-to-back wins against Curry and Husson to keep their national postseason hopes alive.

Despite losing to the Seahawks, the Gulls are still in a position to win the conference, thanks to recent wins against Husson and Western New England. Like Salve Regina, Endicott needs to win its final two outings – they should be the favorites this week and at the end of the season when they visit Nichols.

Western New England will be idle this weekend but faces both Maine teams during the final two weeks of the 2021 season.

Husson rebounded from a seven-point setback to Endicott last weekend with a commanding win over UNE. Look for their momentum to continue this week against the Bison.


Eastern Collegiate Football Conference (ECFC)

The Leader: Anna Maria College (5-1, 3-0)

In the Hunt: Castleton University (4-3, 2-1), Gallaudet University (5-1, 3-1), and Alfred State (3-4, 2-1)

Matchups to watch this week:

  • Anna Maria at Castleton (Oct. 30 at 2 p.m.)
  • Alfred State at Keystone College (Oct. 30 at 2 p.m.)

Synopsis: The AMCATs of Anna Maria head into the final three weeks of the 2021 season with a great deal of momentum, but they will certainly be tested, beginning this weekend when they visit the Spartans of Castleton.

Saturday’s game is a must-win for the Spartans, who have won their last two outings against Dean College (21-13) and Keystone (41-0). The win over the Giants marked the second time the Spartans have shut out an opponent this fall – they rolled past Fitchburg State, 35-0, in week two.

Don’t be surprised if the Anna Maria-Castleton game comes down to the final possession – in some ways, this is somewhat a playoff game for both teams.

Gallaudet is idle this weekend after falling to Alfred State last weekend – the Pioneers kicked a field goal with 1:25 remaining in the fourth quarter to seal a come-from-behind victory. The Pioneers will enter their week nine clash with the Giants as a favorite.   


Massachusetts State Collegiate Athletic Conference (MASCAC)

The Leader: Bridgewater State (5-2, 5-0 MASCAC) and Framingham State (5-2, 5-0)  

Matchups to watch this week:

  • UMass Dartmouth at Bridgewater State (Oct. 30 at 12 p.m.)
  • Framingham State at Massachusetts Maritime Academy (Oct. 30 at 12 p.m.)

Synopsis: Next week’s Bridgewater State-Framingham State contest could serve as a de-facto conference championship game, but before we look ahead to next week, let’s worry about the two matchups above.

UMass Dartmouth enters their week nine clash with the Bears riding a three-game winning streak. That momentum should help them keep pace with a Bridgewater State squad that has produced six touchdowns or more in their last three outings. Bridgewater State has won its last three meetings with UMass Dartmouth.

Framingham State enters its final three contests with a great deal of momentum, as well – they were idle this past weekend but should be able to continue their recent success against a Massachusetts Maritime Academy squad that snapped a six-game losing streak to Western Connecticut last weekend.


New England Small College Athletic Conference (NESCAC)

The Leader: Trinity College (6-0, 6-0), Wesleyan University (6-0, 6-0), and Williams College (6-0, 6-0)

In the Hunt: Amherst College (4-2, 4-2)   

Matchups to watch this week:

  • Trinity at Williams (Oct. 30 at 1 p.m.)
  • Amherst at Wesleyan (Oct. 30 at 1 p.m.

Synopsis: One of these teams – may be two – will end the ninth week with their first setback of the season. But which one will it be?

Trinity is on a roll, outscoring opponents, 222-68, while Williams has produced 216 points through six contests. Should we expect a shootout on Saturday in Williamstown between the Bantams and Ephs?

Despite losing a pair of games to Bowdoin College and Colby College, Amherst College is still very much alive to possibly share the league crown with one of the three undefeated NESCAC squads. We expect the Mammoths will beat one of these teams, maybe two – could they beat all three of them? It is certainly possible.

All four teams will play each other over the next three weeks, including this weekend, so get ready for a fun ending to the 2021 NESCAC season.


New England Women’s and Men’s Athletic Conference (NEWMAC)

The Leader: United States Merchant Marine Academy (USMMA) (7-0, 4-0)  

In the Hunt: Catholic University (5-3, 3-1) and Springfield College (4-3, 3-0)  

Matchups to watch this week:

  • Merchant Marine at Springfield (Oct. 30 at 1 p.m.)

Synopsis: The Mariners can technically clinch the conference crown this weekend with a win against the Pride. But a Springfield victory could result in some serious scoreboard watching over the next two weeks.

Merchant Marine has been a great story this fall, winning seven consecutive contests – you could say eight, dating back to their lone outing last fall with Coast Guard Academy – and appear destined to win the NEWMAC for the first time in program history. But as of recently, the Mariners have struggled against the Pride, losing two of their last three outings, but their most recent win did occur in Springfield in 2018.

After starting 1-3, the Pride have ripped off three straight wins and have outscored their last three foes by a combined score of 162-24. Springfield – from what we’re hearing – seems ready for this matchup. And so are we.

By NoontimeSports.com

Seven weeks of New England small college football are in the books.

And with four weeks remaining in the regular season, it is time to highlight – and yes, share some thoughts, too – on the various conference races to watch in both Division II and Division III.

Let’s begin with the Northeast-10 Conference (NE-10).


Northeast-10 Conference (NE-10)

The Leader: Bentley University (7-0, 5-0)

In the Hunt: Assumption College (3-3, 3-1), University of New Haven (5-1, 4-0), and Stonehill College (5-1, 3-1)

Matchup(s) to watch this week:

  • New Haven at Stonehill (Oct. 23 at 1 p.m.)
  • American International College at Assumption College (Oct. 23 at 1 p.m.)

Synopsis: The Falcons will be idle this upcoming weekend but have stretched their winning streak from 2019 to 12 games, thanks to a 34-20-win last Saturday against Southern Connecticut. Bentley has been impressive thus far — they appear destined to repeat as conference champions, but they will face some challenges over the final few weeks, especially in November when they compete against Assumption (again) and New Haven (the Falcons’ win earlier this season against the Greyhounds was a non-league victory).

New Haven is also a team to watch — like Bentley, they have yet to drop a conference game this fall, but will be challenged over the next few weeks, including this Saturday when they visit Stonehill.


Commonwealth Coast Football (CCC)

The Leader: Endicott College (6-1, 3-0)

In the Hunt: Husson University (4-2, 1-1), Salve Regina University (6-1, 2-1), University of New England (3-2, 1-1), and Western New England (4-3, 2-1)

Matchup(s) to watch this week:

  • Endicott at Salve Regina (Oct. 23 at 12 p.m.)
  • Husson at UNE (Oct. 23 at 1 p.m.)
  • Nichols College at Western New England (Oct. 23 at 1 p.m.)

Synopsis: Endicott enters the fourth week of conference play with a great deal of momentum heading into an important matchup with Salve Regina. A win against the Seahawks would provide the Green and White with the inside track to the conference crown.

Endicott beat Salve Regina in 2019 by six points (30-24) but lost to the Seahawks one year earlier after beating Western New England.

A win for the Seahawks would make the next few weeks rather interesting, despite suffering a 41-3 setback to Western New England earlier this month.

Western New England rebounded from its 45-21 setback to Endicott with a 23-10 win over Curry College — they will be the favorite heading into this week’s matchup with the Bison.

The winner of Husson-UNE will remain in the mix with one conference setback.


Eastern Collegiate Football Conference (ECFC)

The Leaders: Anna Maria College (4-1, 2-0) and Gallaudet University (5-0, 3-0)

In the Hunt: Alfred State (2-4, 1-1) and Castleton University (3-3, 1-1)

Matchup(s) to watch this week:

  • Alfred State at Gallaudet (Oct. 23 at 1 p.m.)
  • Dean College at Anna Maria (Oct. 23 at 1:30 p.m.)

Synopsis: If things remain the way they are currently in two weeks, then Anna Maria-Gallaudet in Paxton, Massachusetts will be the game that most likely decides the conference champion.

Both Anna Maria and Gallaudet appear to be the “teams to beat” heading into the eighth week of the season, but the Pioneers of Alfred State can change that with a win on Saturday in Washington, D.C.

Like Alfred State, Castleton is still in the mix, too, but they must win their remaining contests so they can keep pace with Anna Maria and Gallaudet.

Massachusetts State Collegiate Athletic Conference (MASCAC)

The Leaders: Framingham State (5-2, 5-0) and Bridgewater State (4-2, 4-0)

Matchup to watch this week:

  • Westfield State at Bridgewater State (Oct. 23 at 4 p.m.)

Synopsis: The Bears and Rams have yet to drop a single conference contest while a few teams have suffered two or three setbacks.

So, these are the two teams to watch over the next few weeks – the Rams are idle this weekend but will conclude the month by visiting Massachusetts Maritime Academy while Bridgewater State will play back-to-back games at home against Westfield State and UMass Dartmouth.  

After hosting the Corsairs, the Bears will visit Framingham State with the outcome most likely deciding who will represent the conference in the NCAA Division III Tournament.

Framingham State has scored two important wins against UMass Dartmouth and Western Connecticut while Bridgewater State has only beaten one of those teams.

While Bridgewater State and Framingham State will certainly be the two teams to watch over the next few weeks, keep your eyes on UMass Dartmouth down the stretch as they could possibly conclude the season in second place, as well as secure a bid to the New England Bowl.


New England Small College Athletic Conference (NESCAC)

The Leaders: Trinity College (5-0, 5-0), Wesleyan University (5-0, 5-0), and Williams College (5-0, 5-0)

In the Hunt: Amherst College (3-2, 3-2)

Matchup(s) to watch this week:

  • Williams College at Bates College (Oct. 23 at 1 p.m.)
  • Trinity College at Colby College (Oct. 23 at 1 p.m.)
  • Middlebury College at Wesleyan University (Oct. 23 at 1 p.m.)

Synopsis: The final four weeks of the NESCAC are going to be interesting – maybe we should not overlook Amherst College, which has won three of five matchups this fall?

The Mammoths, along with the Bantams, Cardinals, and Ephs will all compete against each other during the final three weeks, which makes us think that maybe the Purple and White could play spoiler to these three undefeated teams. Perhaps they finish second or third?

Trinity has been fun to watch (and follow), but rather impressive from what we have watched on film. The same could be said for coach Mark Raymond’s Ephs.

As for Wesleyan – sorry, the “Cardiac Cardinals” – they have found ways to win games, especially these last three weeks against Bates, Bowdoin College, and Tufts University.

The Bantams are “the team” we believe will finish with either eight or nine wins, along with the conference crown, but anything is possible – get ready for an exciting ending to the 2021 NESCAC football season!  


New England Women’s and Men’s Athletic Conference (NEWMAC)

The Leaders: Catholic University (5-2, 3-0), Springfield College (3-3, 2-0), and United States Merchant Marine Academy (6-0, 3-0)  

Matchup(s) to watch this week:

  • Springfield at WPI (Oct. 23 at 12 p.m.)
  • Catholic at Merchant Marine (Oct. 23 at 12 p.m.)

Synopsis: Before every NEWMAC team began competing against each other, the Mariners of Merchant Marine appeared to be well on their way to securing the league title. But things have changed.

Heading into this weekend, the Mariners are one of three teams that have yet to lose a conference matchup – this week, Merchant Marine hosts Catholic in a very important contest that we’ll be watching from afar.

Catholic has been a great story this season – the Cardinals have won five of seven matchups thus far, including a non-league tilt with Endicott College last month. Their two setbacks came against Randolph-Macon College and Christopher Newport University, but it seems as if both losses provide the Cardinals with a better understanding of what they must do to be successful once conference play commenced.

After starting its season with a 1-3 record, the Pride of Springfield have rebounded by winning back-to-back games against Coast Guard Academy (60-0) and Norwich University (56-7), thanks to an impressive ground attack that is led by Isaiah Cashwell-Doe, Patrick Ladas, and Tim Callahan.

Look for the ground game to carry Springfield to their fourth win on Saturday when the Pride heads to Worcester to compete against WPI.   

Observations & Thoughts From Five Weeks of New England D2 & D3 Football

By Matt Noonan

We’re slowly reaching the halfway mark of the 2021 college football season – crazy, right?

But the good news is there is still plenty of football left to be played.

While yesterday – Sunday, October 3, 2021 – technically marked the beginning of the sixth week of the season, here are some observations from what I have witnessed over the past few weeks.

Let’s begin in the Northeast 10 Conference (NE10) where Bentley University has won five straight contests to stretch its current winning streak to 10 games, dating back to October 2019.  

The Falcons, who currently occupy the top spot in the conference, have won three consecutive league matchups this fall, including a 34-21 contest this past weekend against Saint Anselm. Quarterback Stephen Sturm account for four touchdowns – three passing, one rushing – and 379 yards of total offense against the Hawks while Cole McCubrey registered a team-high 13 total tackles, including nine solo stops (Rene Nunez also recorded nine solo tackles).

Bentley enters the sixth week of the season as the 18th best team in Division II, according to the latest American Football Coaches Association (AFCA) Poll. The Falcons are one of nine teams on this week’s list that have won five consecutive contests this fall.

West Florida and Northwest Missouri State, which secured the first and second positions in this week’s AFCA D-II Poll, boast identical 4-0 records.

As noted above, there is still a lot of football left to be played, but Bentley has certainly found ways to score hard-fought wins, both this past weekend and at the end of September against American International College.

This week, the Falcons host a Pace University squad that provided challenges for New Haven, which broke open a 14-14 tie with a pair of fourth-quarter touchdowns.

Last week’s Pace-New Haven contest marked the first time the Chargers competed on the road this school year.

Coach Chris Pincince seemed proud of his team’s effort against the Setters, saying that “a win is a win, we look forward. We took another step toward another goal (of winning the Northeast 10 title) that we have.”

New Haven hosts Saint Anselm this week – the Chargers defense will be tasked with slowing down an impressive Hawks passing attack that is led by quarterback Drew Willoughby, who has thrown for 10 touchdowns and 1,410 yards in four contests.

As of now, it appears as if both Bentley and New Haven are the frontrunners for the conference crown as neither squad has dropped a league contest thus far, but don’t overlook Southern Connecticut (3-2, 2-1), Assumption College (2-3, 2-1), and Stonehill College (3-1, 1-1). All three, along with possible American International College could conclude the season in the top spot.

Sure, we picked against Western New England this past weekend in the previous 10 Games to Watch – I thought Salve Regina University would continue its early-season momentum against the Golden Bears – but the Blue and Gold proved me wrong as they defeated the Seahawks, 41-3, in their initial Commonwealth Coast Football (CCC) contest.

Steven Fedorchak highlighted his team’s big win over the Seahawks by setting a new program record for touchdown receptions with 23. He concluded the contest with a game-high 87 yards on six catches.

With the win, the Golden Bears returned to the top spot in our weekly poll and seem destined to occupy that position for the remainder of the season baring a future setback to say Endicott College this week or another conference foe later this fall.

We’ll share our weekly picks later this week, but from what I have seen from Western New England thus far, as well as this past weekend, they certainly are the favorite to win their fourth-straight CCC title.

Here are a few more teams to keep an eye on over the next few weeks:

Anna Maria College: The AMCATs have been a great story this fall.

Anna Maria has won three of four meetings, including its first-ever with Keystone College, which saw quarterback Alex Cohen account for six touchdowns – five passing and one rushing.

Last Saturday’s win provided coach Dan Mulrooney with his seventh victory as the AMCATs head coach – the seven wins are the most recorded by a head coach in program history, dating back to their initial season in 2009.

Anna Maria has never won the Eastern Collegiate Football Conference (ECFC) but could be in line for the title, pending how the next few weeks play out.

Framingham State: After losing back-to-back non-conference games earlier this season, the Rams have bounced back, winning three straight, including their first conference clash of the season with UMass Dartmouth.

Coach Tom Kelley’s squad enters the sixth week of the season tied with Bridgewater State for the top spot in the Massachusetts State Collegiate Athletic Conference (MASCAC) – the two teams will compete next month in Framingham.

The Rams pitched their first shutout of the season last weekend against Plymouth State (33-0) and will attempt to extend their winning streak to four games on Saturday when they visit Fitchburg State for a 3 p.m. kick-off.

Norwich University: The Cadets scored a big win last weekend against Coast Guard Academy to secure a three-way tie atop the New England Women’s and Men’s Athletic Conference (NEWMAC) standings.

After starting their 2021 campaign with back-to-back losses, Norwich has rebounded quite well – hey, they did not make things easy on Endicott, which rallied to beat the Cadets on their home field.

Keep an eye on the Cadets moving forward – maybe their win against Coast Guard Academy is just the start of an exciting second-half run.

Trinity College: I watched the Bantams game last weekend against Middlebury College and came away impressed.

Trinity blanked the defending champions by a score of 28-0, thanks to a pair of touchdown passes from Spencer Fetter, who has thrown eight touchdowns this fall while completing 62 of 91 passes for 952 yards.

Fetter was impressive, but the same could be said for others, including halfback William Kirby and linebacker Brian Casagrande, who both scored one touchdown last weekend.

Trinity is one of three New England Small College Athletic Conference (NESCAC) teams that have yet to drop a game this season – they will attempt to continue their winning ways on Saturday when they visit Hamilton College for a 1 p.m. kick-off.

University of New England: The Nor’easters are one win away from matching their program record for wins in a single season after capturing their last three matchups, including a pair of non-league wins over Alfred State and Bridgewater State.

Last Saturday, UNE scored its first win in program history against Nichols College, thanks to three rushing touchdowns from Jack Mahoney, Jaymeson Maheux, and Connor Sirois.   

UNE travels to Salve Regina this weekend for its second conference tilt of the 2021 season.

Noontime’s New England D2 Top Five Poll (Aug. 30, 2021)

By NoontimeSports.com

The first week of the New England NCAA D-II college football season has officially arrived, which means it is time to unveil our first-ever Top Five Poll, which features teams from the Northeast-10 Conference. And speaking of the NE10, make sure to check out our New England D-II preseason team — there are quite a few Massachusetts and New England natives on our squad.

Best of luck to all teams competing, both later this week and weekend, and make sure to stop by for more New England college football content over the next few days.

Noontime’s New England D-II Top Five Poll (Week No. 1 | August 30, 2021)

  1. Univ. of New Haven (7-3, 6-2 in 2019): Picked to finish first in the preseason coaches poll, the Chargers, who begin their 2021 campaign at home against Franklin Pierce University on Saturday, will certainly be a team to watch in the conference this fall — keep your eyes on halfback Shamar Logan, who was one of two running backs named to our inagural preseason team, along with a defense that won’t make things easy on opposing offenses.

  2. Bentley University (6-4, 6-2 in 2019): The defending conference champions from 2019 will open their title defense against a West Chester University Rams squad that was picked to finish second in the Pennsylvania State Athletic Conference (PSAC) preseason poll on Friday in Waltham. Quarterback Stephen Sturm returns for his final season with the Falcons — he was certainly a player to watch in 2019, recording career-bests in passing yards (2,221), touchdown passes (14), rushing yards (297), and rushing touchdowns (four).

  3. Stonehill College (6-4, 5-3 in 2019): Halfback Justin Felder is back — the Springfield Gardens, New York native garnered a slew of postseason honors in 2019, including the NE10’s MVP award, and will certainly provide some challenges for Bloomsburg University on Saturday.

  4. Assumption College (6-4, 5-3 in 2019): The Greyhounds offense was explosive in 2019, averaging 34.3 points per game, which was the most by any NE10 squad, along with 202.4 rushing yards. Assumption will be led by a few Massachusetts natives this fall, including defensive end Trenton Wright, who enjoyed his best season on defese.

  5. Saint Anselm College (4-7, 4-4 in 2019): Despite finishing with just four wins in 2019, the Hawks provided some serious challenges for some of the top teams in the league, including New Haven and Southern Connecticut State. The Hawks return some key pieces from their squad two years ago, including two members of the o-line — Michael Boucher and Brian Kosicki — that appeared on our preseason squad.
