SNHU men’s soccer has started their season off on a high note, going 4-1-2 in their first seven contests. The early success has earned them a top 20 ranking according to United Soccer Coaches in their most recent poll.

In 2022, the Penmen finished their season 8-6-4, earning a bid to the NE10 championship where they won their first match versus The College of Saint Rose in penalty kicks, but ultimately fell to Franklin Pierce in the semifinals, 1-7.

Penmen forward, Philipp Herrmann (’26), is a staple of the starting 11. He likes the start the team has had and is looking forward to the rest of the season.

“I think we have a really talented team this season,” Herrmann said. “It will be important to bring that talent on the pitch for every game. If we are able to do that we can bring back the success the soccer program has had in the past. I‘m looking forward to the NE10 playoffs and hope we can make it to the NCAA tournament. I‘m hoping for great success this year!”

In NE10 play, SNHU is 1-1 with a slew of conference games coming up on their schedule. Their fiercest competition is Franklin Pierce, the defending NCAA Division II national champion. They are set to face off on October 28 in Rindge, NH at Franklin Pierce.

The team is set to play Saint Michael’s College this coming Wednesday at Mark A. Ouellette Stadium at 7pm. The Penmen will welcome Candia Youth Soccer and the game will also be an SNHU Athletes Supporting Athletes night.

Athletes Supporting Athletes is an SNHU athletics initiative to promote all sports creating a more cohesive unit. Each respective sport has its own game when athletes from all other teams are encouraged to attend.
