Booters First In NCAA Poll

Harvard's varsity soccer team received the maximum score in the balloting for the top ten teams of New England this week. The Crimson was followed at a distance by Wesleyan. Brown, and Tufts in the race for four NCAA District I Playoff berths.

Wesleyan still remains undefeated since its loss to the Crimson two weeks ago. The cardinals beat Amherst, 4-1, last weekend to maintain a tight grasp on second place.

Brown once again proved the adage that the New England coaches will pick Brown as a perennial top team no matter what the Bruins record. Brown lost to Army, 1-0, last week but held on to third place.

Tufts, led by Sol Gomez's brother, jumped from ninth to fourth place after knocking off Boston University, 3-0, and U. Mass., 24, to remain undefeated.

1. Harvard (6-0-0)

2. Wesleyan (6-1-0)

3. Brown (4-3-1)

4. Tufts (7-0-0)

5. Williams (5-0-1)
