Yup, at a bare minimum, based on current tourney wins by men's and women's soccer, and simple participation in the NCAA m/w champs, we'd be at 138 points for the fall. Every additional win, (or move up from last place in the Cross-country championships) moves the total higher.
As a point of comparison, last year, which was our highest scoring/ranking in the Directors Cup in about 5 years (70th place), the Hoyas had 62 points in the fall, and 265 overall. The program is currently over half that total, and could possibly even eclipse 265 in just the fall sports!
The winning formula against UNC is simple. Someone finish a chance early, go to the 4-5-1 and get numbers behind the ball, look to steal another goal on a restart. Burnett needs to have a big game marking Dixion (4 pts). Dixon makes everyone look slow so you have to contain. Put a body to Martinez (22 pts), Urso (13 pts) and Farfan (13 pts) whenever they touch the ball and double in the attacking 1/3. Prevent slotted balls- that's Dillon's responsibility, Brutto needs to have his "A" game between the pipes, Neumann needs to pull out some more Frosh magic, C'deBaca and Diggs need to defend! Tembon who can defend needs to have more minutes. Don't give the ball away in the middle 1/3. Slingerland and Muller need to stay organized and clear, clear, clear. See, it's simple! GO HOYAS.
