For his sake, I hope he works on that, because like I said, he spent an entire summer with a MLS-affiliated U23 team.
PDL in general though is so unorganized, and may or may not tell you much about a player. However, as good as Wright has been at UVM and within the America East, he's still going to have a huge uphill battle to making it in MLS, if that's what you're implying. Most of it systematic bias, too (because MLS is a joke). Not saying he won't get a look, but there are things going against him that aren't entirely in his control. If he stays in the US for his professional career, he'll just end up on a USL team.

He'd be better off trying his hand abroad in Scandinavia or lower levels of Central Europe that are lax on work permit regulations, to be honest, if he wants a true challenge.

UVM defeats New Hampshire 2-0 at home on Senior Night to close out the regular season behind goals from DeFeo and Wright.

Huge win for UVM for both conference tournament and RPI/ at-large candidacy.

Good luck to all the conference from here on out. Sitting at #4 in the country in rpi and not being allowed in postseason play is disappointing, can't say I expected it.

Re: OT: 2016 Men's Soccer

Great game at Virtue Field tonight. UVM had a ton of chances to score goals. Wright had a few beautiful crosses that didn't result in goals so it was fitting that he got one with about 10 minutes to play.

UVM hosts a quarterfinal game at Virtue on Saturday at 1:00

This sucks for UML and AE. Terrific team and can't go ahead.

Re: OT: 2016 Men's Soccer

Albany 5, Binghamton 1
UMass Lowell 2, Hartford 1
Stony Brook 2, UMBC 0
Vermont 2, New Hampshire 0

Standings
UMass Lowell 16
Stony Brook 13
Albany 13
Vermont 12
New Hampshire 12
Hartford 8
Binghamton 6
UMBC 0

UMBC scored 0 goals in league play. Yeesh! Also, I think Vermont played its way into an at-large bid, I would be very surprised if today's loss keeps New Hampshire out of the tournament.

Tournament
Vermont vs. Binghamton, winner plays Albany next Wednesday.
New Hampshire vs. Hartford, winner plays Stony Brook next Wednesday.

Re: OT: 2016 Men's Soccer

College Soccer News predicts 4 teams in the tournament, New Hampshire (as champ), Albany, Vermont and Stony Brook.

RPI Update has those same teams, but Albany winning the AE Tournament.

Personally, I think Stony Brook may be a stretch, and will have to win the semifinal next Wednesday to be considered a lock.

However, BC's record is 7-7-2. The NCAA throws out teams with losing records. So a BC loss would open up an at large spot.

Counterbalancing that, West Virginia (who are in the MAC for men's soccer) didn't make their conference tournament. But, they are the only MAC team currently inside the at large field based on RPI. So there's a potential bid thief coming from the MAC (although Buffalo or Akron would likely have an RPI inside the cutline after winning the tournament).
Boston College beat Virginia Tech in PK's. That will take out a bubble team.

Not necessarily! When the game finished tied through overtime, it officially became a tie in both teams' overall records. PK's are disregarded.

So, BC immediately became 7-7-3. Now they have to go play #1 North Carolina. And probably lose, and finish 7-8-3.

BC, frankly, should have thrown the shootout.

Stony Brook is right inside the cut line, last team in. UNH only has two teams as a buffer. They move up one each if BC loses to UNC. Hartford is going to hurt UNH's schedule strength, that is probably a must win, and next week's SBU-UNH potential semi could be a win and you're in deal if things don't break right. Albany and UVM seem safe.

Games to watch today:

A-Sun tournament, Stetson v. Lipscomb. Lipscomb is right outside the bubble. If they lose, they are likely out.

There are four Big East teams right near the bubble (Creighton, Villanova, Xavier, DePaul). Their last regular season games are today, and one of those teams could lose their conference tournament spot to Georgetown.

Thank you for all of the great info! It helps me sound smart when talking with friends and family about UVM/College soccer in general!

Harvard is leading the Ivy League right now, and has a RPI of 15. Not a huge impact on how many AE teams would get in because Dartmouth, which is second is at 20 RPI. But, the next best team is Columbia at 59, and they are tied for second in the league so far.

Yes, Harvard Cancels Rest of Menís Soccer Season Over Lewd Ratings of Female Players. Brock Turner would've felt right at home there.
