Weekend Picks: March 17

Women’s D-III semifinals are Friday at Plattsburgh. Nothing more needs to be said except for, well, the picks of Candace and Matt.

Friday, March 18

Middlebury versus Plattsburgh, 3:30 p.m. EDT
Candace: Middlebury will make it close, but not close enough. Plattsburgh 5-2
Matt: This is Plattsburgh’s year. I like the Cardinals with a win here with Kayla Meneghin tallying two goals and an assist. Plattsburgh 5-2

Wisconsin-River Falls versus Elmira, 7 p.m. EDT
Candace: Probably the hardest game to pick. Elmira pulled off one upset last week, and I think the Soaring Eagles do again. Elmira 3-1
Matt: Too close to call, but we have to, right? Let’s go with River Falls here. I think the offense is too strong with Chloe Kinsel leading the way. I’ll say Wis.-River Falls 3-1

We’ll be back Saturday morning with our title game picks!
