Secretaries Cup On The Horizon for Coast Guard and Merchant Marine Academies
by Graham Knight
We're counting down to the Secretaries Cup, which is just three weeks away. A Merchant Marine alum told BTL that if the Mariners go undefeated all season but then lose to Coast Guard, Merchant Marine would think of 2021 as a losing season -- there's that much at stake.
In week six Merchant Marine beat Norwich 49 to 14, a team that beat Coast Guard 24 to 21. The Mariners then downed MIT 56-34.
The Mariners host Catholic in week eight, and then they play Springfield. After the Springfield Pride drowned the Bears 60-0 in week six, they went on to beat Norwich 56-7.
Springfield is clearly on a roll and their match-up against the Mariners on October 30th could be the NEWMAC game of the year.
