They won their last two games against Plymouth State University and Framingham State University after losing two in a row. With the Little East Conference Tournament right around the corner, the Beacons hope to carry their winning ways straight into the postseason. The regular season will wrap up with two road games, one against Bridgewater State University and the other against Keene State College. 
Men’s Soccer: The UMass Boston Men’s soccer team has been somewhat struggling lately, failing to find a win in their last three games. They did not lose to Plymouth State University. However, they tied with one goal apiece in a thrilling double-overtime game. Their record is 6–9–2, but their conference record is a healthy 3–1–2. The Beacons’ season will end with two conference matchups against Rhode Island College and Keene State College. Even though they have a subpar record, they still could do some damage in the Little East Conference Tournament.
