The Continentals (9-3-2 overall) are leading the group of teams in the "Others Receiving Votes" portion with 15 points in both polls.

Hamilton extended its current unbeaten streak to nine games (7-0-2) with a 3-2 win at Connecticut College on Saturday night and a 1-1 tie at Tufts University on Sunday afternoon. It's the longest unbeaten streak for the men since they won nine straight games during the 1996-97 season.
