BSU Fall Sports Recap

The Bridgewater State Bears fall sports teams have achieved some great success throughout the past three months. From football nearly sweeping the MASCAC Conference, to Men’s & Women’s Soccer both winning the regular season championship, and everything in between, here is an overview of how their seasons went. 

Football: The Bears started their season on a two-game losing streak against MIT and WPI in those great games.  

In MASCAC Conference play, the Bears would go 7-1 in that stretch, losing only to UMass Dartmouth on Senior day on October 28. For their final game of the regular season, the Bears would play in the 44th Annual Cranberry Bowl rivalry game against Mass. Maritime, where they would win 48-6 to capture their fifth straight trophy.  

Men’s Soccer: The BSU Men’s Soccer team has come off heartbreaking losses in the MASCAC Tournament the last two seasons against Framingham State and Worcester State respectively. The Bears team was hungry for the MASCAC Championship this season, according to Head Coach Brendan Adams. 

The hard work paid off because the Bears won their first MASCAC Championship since the 2018 season with a 5-0 victory at home against Westfield State in the championship.  

The Bears got the automatic bid to the NCAA Tournament due to winning the championship and went on to face the #20 Tufts Jumbos in the Medford regional, which they would lose 3-0 in the first round.  

Women’s Soccer: The BSU Women’s Soccer team had a great season while going undefeated in MASCAC Conference play. The Bears went 7-0 in the conference with an 11-6-1 overall record. The Bears shutout the Fitchburg State Falcons 2-0 in the MASCAC Tournament Semifinal before losing to Westfield State in the championship game.

Field Hockey: This was the first season that the MASCAC started sponsoring field hockey, as the Bears and all the other MASCAC teams were in the Little East as an affiliate for the last 22 seasons.  

The Bears have had struggles all season with a 4-12-1 overall record and a 1-9 MASCAC record, which accounted for last place in the MASCAC. Their only conference win this season came against the Fitchburg State Falcons on October 6 with a 5-2 win.  

Volleyball: The Bears had a season full of inconsistency, which led to a 4-13 overall record with a 2-5 MASCAC Conference record.  

They were in fifth place in the conference, which put them up against #4 Framingham State in the first round, where they would lose 3-1.
