The first round of the keeper bracket lacked compelling matchups, featuring a series of blowouts. The most interesting result might be former Boston University keeper Brendan Stack, the No. 7 seed, handily defeating Emerson’s David Fox, the No. 10 seed. The quarterfinals should feature an interesting matchup with No. 4 Alex Browne, formerly of UCLA, taking on present UCLA keeper No. 5 Zach Luce. 

Matchup of the Day: N/A

Upset Special: No. 9 Jacob Bruner def. No. 8 Michael Parada
It’s tough to call this an upset when it was a 15-0 shutout. This seems to have been more a mistake of seeding than an actual upset.
