Coming off the team’s fourth straight East Coast Conference tournament berth, the NYIT men’s soccer team has set its 16-game schedule for the upcoming season.

The Bears will open the season on August 30 at home against Felician. Kick off is 4 p.m. Its East Coast Conference slate of matches start on September 15 against Roberts Wesleyan in Old Westbury.

Senior Day — and the regular-season finale — will come in a Battle of the Boulevard matchup against reigning ECC champion LIU Post on Oct. 27. The other Long Island matchup features a home match against Molloy College on October 10.

The Bears enter the season with two new captains. Coach Carlos Delcid recently selected senior midfielders Dan Lembo and Martin Sundell to lead the squad.

Lembo appeared in all 19 matches for NYIT in 2017, tallying two goals and one assist. That production included the late game-winner in an eventual 3-1 victory against Concordia (N.Y.) in the Aug. 31, 2017, season opener.

Sundell, who hails from Sweden, also appeared in all 19 matches a season ago as a junior. He tallied three goals and two assists.
