soccer players

Williams' Eamon Gara Grady tries to get past Chicago's Griffin Wada during the first half of Saturday's NCAA Division III men's soccer national championship game. Chicago beat the Ephs 2-0, and Wada was named the outstanding defensive player of the Final Four.

At 2:05 p.m. on Saturday, the clock struck midnight for the Williams College men’s soccer team.

The Ephs, who were looking to win their first NCAA Division III championship in a generation, surrendered a pair of second-half goals to the University of Chicago, and the Maroons went on to win 2-0.
