Weakened by the absence of center forward Bill Keller, high scorer in last Saturday's victory over M.I.T. the '46 soccermen will take on the Nichols Junior College team this afternoon at 3:30 o'clock at the Business School Field.
The absence of Keller, who injured his ankle in the last few minutes of the Tech game last week, after scoring four of the six Crimson goals, will undoubtedly be a serious blow to the team. But the two other top players, Bill Frye at goal and Bill Guild at left outside forward will be an hand. The squad may be further depleted by Wednesday labs, but this will affect only a few.
Little is known of the Nichols Junior College squad which will come down from their Worcester home grounds, but the Yardlings expect to add another victory to their record of one loss and one defeat.
