It’s a large helping of NCAA DI action involving PDL players taking the forefront on Tuesday, with a small side serving of NCAA DII for good measure.
Three matches featuring PDL players on both sides of the field headline the NCAA DI slate. Leading the charge is a fascinating in-state showdown as SIMA Aguilas midfielder Dennis Zapata, FC Tucson forward Albert Ruiz and Florida Gulf Coast take on Reading United AC defender Paul Marie, SIMA Aguilas forward Santiago Patino and Florida International.
Also competing against one another are Chicago FC United forward Jeff Farina and Michigan Bucks forward Francis Atuahene as Notre Dame and Michigan clash in a cross-conference ACC vs. Big Ten battle. Finally, we’ll also see Chicago FC United teammates Thomas Barlow and Chris Mueller lead Wisconsin in an in-state showdown against Seacoast United Phantoms midfielder Audi Jepson and Wisconsin Green Bay.
In total, 31 PDL players take the field across 14 matches on Tuesday.
