Top-Ten Squads Set to Clash in York

YORK, Pa. – York College's Graham Field is the setting for an early season top-ten men's soccer matchup. On Wednesday, September 8, the #10 York College men's soccer squad hosts visiting #6 Johns Hopkins in a 4:00 pm non-conference tilt.

Both squads have opened the season with identical 2-0 records. The Spartans have accumulated their two victories on the road via a 1-0 overtime defeat of Susquehanna on September 1 and a 3-1 triumph over Cabrini on September 4. This contest marks the first home match for the Green and White in 2010.

Hopkins travels up from Baltimore, Md. after winning their own "Blue Jay Classic" last weekend. The Blue Jays dispatched Buffalo State 7-0 in the opener before topping Catholic 1-0 in the title game.

Both the Spartans and Blue Jays were NCAA Tournament participants a season ago, as both reached the Sweet 16.
