MOST COMMENTED


Messiah won its third straight NCAA Division III men's title and fifth in the last seven years with a 3-0 win over Wheaton (Ill.) in the final on Saturday night in Lake Buena Vista, Fla.

Josh Sanders scored two goals and Brett Faro added a third for the Falcons, who also beat NYU, 3-0, in the semifinals.

Wheaton coach Joe Bean, the winningest men's soccer coach in collegiate history, finished his career with a record of 607-185-61 and two national championships, in 1984 and 1997, and two second-place finishes, in 1999 and 2006. Following a 45-year career, he will be inducted into the NSCAA Hall of Fame in January.

The Wheaton women won their second NCAA Division III women's championship in the last three years with a 2-0 win over the College of New Jersey on Saturday. Both Thunder goals were scored by junior forward Sarah Richardson in the opening 45 minutes. TCNJ, the runner-up for the last two years, lost only two games in 2006, both to Wheaton.
