MEN'S SOCCER PICKED TO FINISH THIRD IN A-10​

VCU Men's Soccer was picked to finish third in the Atlantic 10 in a poll of the league's coaches, the conference announced Wednesday afternoon.

The Rams also received one first-place vote in the 14-team conference poll. No. 10 Saint Louis was picked to repeat as champion with 193 points in the poll, while Rhode Island (170), VCU (154), Fordham (141), and Loyola Chicago (128) rounded out the top five.

VCU finished 2021 with a 9-7-2 record, including three wins over ranked teams. The Rams received votes in the United Soccer Coaches poll for 11 straight weeks, and reached as high as No. 12 in the poll earlier in the season.

The Rams lost 11 players who started matches last season to graduation and professional contracts, but reloaded with a 2022 recruiting class that was ranked No. 24 in the nation by Top Drawer Soccer. VCU also returns sophomore midfielder Damian Gallegos, who was an A-10 All-Rookie Team selection last year after collecting four goals and four assists.

VCU faces a challenging 2022 schedule, including 17 regular season matches and three exhibitions that feature nine opponents that played in the 2021 NCAA Tournament. Eight teams on the 2022 slate were ranked in the United Soccer Coaches Top 25 Preseason Poll.

So, I was watching the Women's game against JMU tonight, and both teams looked great with a lot of action going on in the section half, but by the end of regulation both teams were scoreless. No problem, our Rams will get 'em in extra time...

...NOPE. Apparently, the NCAA got rid of extra time for Men's and Women's regular season games starting this year. Not sure how I feel about that...

The women won an exciting game against Pitt last night, 3-2. Before last night, Pitt's keepers had given up just one goal all season.
