Adelphi, Le Moyne and Merrimack Share NE10 Regular-Season Title.
MANSFIELD, Mass. – At the conclusion of the regular season, Adelphi, Le Moyne and Merrimack all sit with 10-1 records in the Northeast 10 Conference – meaning the trio of top-5 USILA nationally-ranked programs share the league’s regular season title.
The tri-champions only lost conference games to each, as Adelphi beat Merrimack, Merrimack defeated Le Moyne, and Le Moyne bested Adelphi. Due to goal differential in those three games, the Panthers will enter the NE10 Championship as the top seed.
