Eli Morris '18 (#13, Hamilton) takes control of the ball.

Hamilton’s field hockey and men’s soccer teams are heading to the semifinal rounds of the NESCAC Championships next weekend.

Field hockey advanced after knocking off visiting Amherst 1-0 in Saturday's quarterfinal at Goodfriend Field. With the win, the third-seeded Continentals will play fourth-seeded Middlebury (who beat Bowdoin 2-0 in quarterfinal action) in a semifinal game Saturday, Nov. 5, at top-seeded Tufts.

Michaela Giuttari ’20 scored the game's only goal and the Continental defense held Amherst – who entered the game ranked 18th nationally in scoring – scoreless for just the second time this season as Hamilton won its first NESCAC playoff game in four tries.

Men’s soccer eliminated visiting Connecticut College 2-1 in overtime in Saturday's quarterfinal at Love Field. With the win, the fourth-seeded Continentals will play sixth-seeded Middlebury (who upset third-seeded Williams 1-0 in another quarterfinal) in a semifinal game Saturday, Nov. 5, at top-seeded Amherst. The host school will play seventh-seeded Bowdoin in the other semifinal; the two semifinal winners will meet in Sunday's final with the NESCAC's automatic bid to the NCAA playoffs at stake.

Mike Lubelczyk '17 headed home the game winner 2:49 into overtime to send men's soccer to the NESCAC semifinals for the first time. Hamilton was hosting its first quarterfinal playoff game since joining the NESCAC in 2011.
