Sweet, sweet 16

The men’s soccer team continued its awesome season this past weekend in the NCAA tournament, beating St. Joseph’s of Maine 2-0 in the first round and moving past Western New England on penalty kicks in the second, thanks to the heroics of Rory O’Neill ’13 (#27) and Adam Purdy ’13 (#30). Wes is now into the NCAA Sectionals for the first time in team history and will play Rochester at Messiah College Saturday night at 7:30.

Where is Messiah College, you ask? Grantham, Pennsylvania, just outside Harrisburg. Pretty far, right? Yes, but the kind souls in the Wes athletic department are considering chartering a bus to Messiah for those who wish to attend Saturday night’s game. There will be a minimal charge required to reserve a space. Interested? Contact Nancy Chesbro at nchesbro@wes. The bus will only run if there’s enough interest, so e-mail Nancy ASAP if you’re interested. Let’s show these guys from PA that John Wesley is the real Messiah.
