Fans of the men's soccer team are all asking the same question: What is going on?

From bumbling beginnings to dramatic defeats, the Polar Bears' disappointing season continued with a stunning draw against Babson after an upsetting defeat by Colby the day before.

Last Saturday, the men held the Mules in a close battle until the last 10 minutes of play, when Colby fired in two quick shots to upset Bowdoin for the second time in 15 years, 2-0.

The Polar Bears had barely digested that defeat when they took on nationally-ranked Babson the next day. Just 18 minutes in, Sam White '15 headed the ball in for an early lead, but Babson then responded with two quick goals and took a 2-1 lead.

As the crowd prepared itself for another loss, Bowdoin gained possession and passed it downfield to Hunter Clark '13, who scored the game-tying goal with just three minutes left.

This weekend will bring on a whole new set of challenges, as the Polar Bears take on Hamilton tomorrow and an undefeated Amherst team, ranked No. 9 in D-III, the following day.

"I try not to look at the stats of upcoming teams because anything can happen," said goalkeeper Will Wise '14, who made eight saves last weekend.

Wise, who in the past year has gone from sitting on the bench to becoming the starting goalkeeper, said he tries to maintain his composure and hopes the team can do the same.

"He's got a terrific temperament for a goalkeeper: calm and collected," said Head Coach Fran O'Leary. "He's not going to get upset if his toast gets burnt."

"We want to win a game and then win a second game," he added. "I know what these guys can do and this scribble of a painting is not complete yet. It might not be a Rembrandt quite yet, but I wouldn't write our guys off."

In order to maintain a spot in the NESCAC tournament, Bowdoin (4-4-2, 1-4-1 NESCAC) will need to secure three points against Hamilton on Saturday and keep a close game the following day against Amherst.

"We're ready," said Wise of the upcoming challenge. "Ready to win."
