Suffolk's men's soccer team earned its first ever post-season playoff berth, taking the No. 8 seed in the Eastern College Athletic Conference New England Championships. The Rams will travel to Wellesley to play No. 1 seed Babson in the post-season tournament.

Babson was the NEWMAC runner up and has a 12-6-3 overall record. Suffolk is 10-5 after reaching the semifinals of the Great Northeast Athletic Conference. A win over Babson on Wednesday would put Coach Nick Papadopoulos's team in the ECAC New England semifinals on Saturday, Nov. 11. ECAC New England Finals are Sunday, Nov. 12.

Johnson and Wales is the No. 2 seed and will play at No. 7 seed New England College. No. 3 seed Coast Guard will host No. 6 seed Norwich. No. 4 seed Brandeis will host No. 5 seed Plymouth State.

In lieu of an admission fee on Wednesday, Babson will be accepting monetary donations and non-perishable food items to donate to a local food bank for admission.
