Salisbury and Stevenson in Division III tournament

With much attention centered on the Division I tournament, let’s recognize the inclusion of Salisbury and Stevenson in the Division III tournament.

The No. 5 and eight-time reigning national champion Sea Gulls (15-3) earned the automatic qualifier after winning the Capital Athletic Conference tournament and will visit No. 8 Haverford (13-3) in a second-round game on Saturday at 1 p.m.

The No. 4 Mustangs (15-1) earned a first-round bye and will play host to the winner of Montclair State-No. 14 Cabrini in the second round on Saturday at 1 p.m.

If both Salisbury and Stevenson win, the teams would meet in a quarterfinal on Wednesday, May 13. The CAC rivals have split the season series with the Mustangs winning, 12-8, on April 4 and the Sea Gulls returning the favor, 13-5, in the CAC tournament final on April 19.

If Salisbury is ranked #5 why are they traveling to #8 Haverford?

Salisbury should get by Haverford, but it won't be easy. Stevenson is on a mission, and I like them beating the 'Gulls' in the 2nd round, and then all the way to Foxboro.

I have to agree, why doesn't Salisbury have a home game after being ranked #5 in the country as well as winning their conference tournament? Haverford has never been seeded highter than Salisbury during the season. Somebody needs to explain that one to me.
