Men’s Soccer

The men’s soccer team finished last season at 8-9-2 overall and are looking to improve their stats this season. Joining the men as head coach will be Coach Michael Coven, entering his 37th year in that position. He is the only current Brandeis coach to have lead a team to a national championship. Assistant coach Gabe Margolis will also be rejoining the team for his fourth year.

Midfielder/forward Adam Guttman will be reprising his role of captain again this season and will share the duties with midfielder Corey Bradley ’10. The program certainly has some spots to fill as the two other captains from last year, Ben Premo, and Kevin Murphy, graduated Brandeis in May. Premo holds a particular place of honor in Brandeis soccer with having the fifth most goals scored (38) and points (98) in school history. The Hoot will be talking to Coach Coven later this week to discuss how the team plans to adapt to these changes and move towards and even more productive future.

The men will start off their season September 5-6 in the Adidas Kick-Off Classic at Wheaton. Saturday they will face Rutgers-Newark who finished the 2008 season at 10-9-2. Sunday will bring a match against the University of Southern Maine who went 12-9-1 last season.

Brandeis did not face either team last year.
