On Saturday, there were a number of tough contests involving Top 25 teams and conference rivals with more than a handful of upsets and ties. The conference results are beginning to take on some meaning as the conference tournaments are only three weeks distant - up to date conference standings can be accessed via our D3soccer.com Conferences Page.

Fourth-ranked York had to battle a strong Christopher Newport side for a 2-1 win on Justin Kaiser's goal in the second overtime, Hamilton fought No. 5 Amherst to a 1-1 draw, and Wartburg surprised No. 7 Loras 2-1, with sophomore Chris Nothnick scoring the game winner early in the second half.

In the UAA, No. 9 Brandeis cruised in a 4-0 win over Case Western, and Chicago usurped tenth-ranked Carnegie Mellon 2-1, and East Texas Baptist played No. 11 UT-Dallas to a 1-1 draw. No. 15 Franklin & Marshall got back to their winning ways by edging McDaniel 2-1.
