Working hard on and off the field, the MIT women’s soccer team is engineering a season to remember.
At the All-Star break, the Bruins have notched up a solid 57 points, only one point adrift of second place in their division. Currently, the Boston team owns one of the two Wild Card positions for the Stanley Cup playoffs in the Eastern Conference.
Following a fifth-place finish in the Atlantic Conference last season, which saw the Boston Bruins narrowly miss the playoffs, the Bruins’ front office set in motion a mini-rebuilding phase as they seek their first Stanley Cup triumph since 2011-12.
Fans, immersed in gray and cardinal, flooded the stands of Steinbrenner Stadium to cheer on the MIT football team in its first home game of the season. The Engineers notched their first win of the season by an impressive 51-26 score line over Maine Maritime on the back of a dominant performance from running back Adis T. Ojeda ’19, who ran for a mammoth 262 yards including 3 touchdowns.
