Air Force delivered another blow to the Navy women, defeating the visiting Midshipmen 47-22 in front of a dense crowd last weekend. Navy, an Independent DI team competing in ACRA, needs to hit a hot streak if it’s to be considered as an at-large inclusion in playoffs.
The Mid-Atlantic women’s DII college divisions starkly contrasted with each other. In the Tri-State Division, four of five matches were shutouts, with Kutztown posting the biggest margin in its 145-point win over Rowan. But the Pennsylvania Division was much more nerve-wracking. The three victors outscored opponents 87-65.
It's typically quite the exercise to recount every evolution of Winona's games. The ACRA DII champion records high point differentials, and last Saturday, the Black Katts banked its highest victory margin against Bemidji. But instead of simply giving a nod to the box score, here is the full account of Winona's 112-0 win, as retold by head coach Josh Krzewinski. Get comfortable.
It was crossover weekend for the Northeast DI women’s colleges, which produced one thing: big scores. These games do not impact standings, and good thing, because Norwich, Army and American International College outscored their opponents by a combined 348-5.
Saturday’s game against Norwich was probably the most important of DI Quinnipiac’s fall season. Yes, it was friendly. Yes, it was a loss. But the 45-38 scoreline is representative of the vast improvement the team has made since fall 2013.
