Getting Ready for the Weekend

here are some of the key games to watch for in the Conference this weekend.

Ursinus opens defense of its 2004 CC field hockey title when it welcomes Dickinson to Snell Field. The Bears (2-1) are ranked sixth in this week's NFHCA Division III poll. Franklin & Marshall (4-0) looks to keep its record spotless when it visits Eastern Mennonite (Sat.) and Mary Washington (Sun.).

It is annually one of the top games in men's soccer in the CC, but this year's Muhlenberg-Johns Hopkins match takes on even more intrigue as the Mules are ranked 18th in the country and the Blue Jays are ninth. Read more on the game in the Allentown Morning Call. Elsewhere, Dickinson and Swarthmore pit their 4-1 records against each other on the Clothier Field pitch in the CC opener for both schools.

A couple of interesting matches on the women's side, as Haverford (4-1) travels to #16 Johns Hopkins (6-0) and Ursinus (3-0) plays host to Gettysburg (1-3-1) in rematches of the 2004 CC semifinal pairings. The Fords have not won in Baltimore since 1995, while the Bullets are 9-0-1 all-time against the Bears.
