The speedy Uconns already have downed Dartmouth (VI) and Yale (2-1). Runner-up to the Uconns last season, in the Jfaw England Intercollegiate Soccer League, Harvard is considerably weaker this year as the result of losing eight key men via graduation. But the rebuilding job by Coach Bruce Munro appears to be taking hold, for the Crimson showed surprising ability in dropping a 2-0 game to Amherst last week. Definitely one of the strongest teams in the East, Amherst tied Connecticut in a pre-scason scrimmage a few weeks ago.. Thus. Connecticut may find itself with another battle on its hands tomorrow.
