      Dean College Men’s Soccer Final Results USCAA National Tournament, November 9-13, 2017

      The Dean College Men’s Soccer team finished their USCAA National Tournament run on Sunday, November 12th, falling to Bryant & Stratton in the semifinals.

      The team defeated Florida College in the first round, followed by SUNY-ESF in the second round of the tournament, but came up short on game three. 

      Semifinal Recap:

      In what turned out to be a marathon match that took more than three hours to complete, the Bulldogs best scoring chance came in the 62nd minute when Cristiano Martins (Brockton, Mass.) chased down a ball and sent a sliding pass across the box to Felipe Campos (Barnstable, Mass.) but his shot sailed over the crossbar.

      The match was incredibly physical with 18 fouls called and 13 yellow cards being assessed.

      Bryant & Stratton looked as if they might get on the board in regulation a few times but Nathan Silveira (East Providence, R.I.) was able to make several spectacular stops, including one late in regulation that he was able to deflect over the crossbar.

      In the extra sessions, the Bobcats depth began to show as they controlled play in both ten minute periods, outshooting the Bulldogs 10-0 in that time frame.

      Both teams came out scoring on their penalty kicks and Dean was 8-for-8 until their ninth shooter was turned aside by a fantastic save from backup netminder Edixon Castillo, which set the stage for McGibbons' heroics.

      For the Bulldogs, they see their five-match winning streak and their season come to an end in what can be considered an instant classic.

      Overall, the Cardinal and White finish at 16-1-3, won a share of the regular season conference title, advanced to the national semifinals and had four student-athletes earn All-America honors.

      Dean College Presents: Legally Blonde, November 15-19, 2017

      11/07/2017

      THIS SHOW IS NOW SOLD OUT! WE LOOK FORWARD TO AN AMAZING PERFORMANCE FROM OUR STUDENTS! 

      Dean College Presents: Legally Blonde, November 15-19, 2017

      The School of the Arts at Dean College will perform Legally Blonde, beginning Wednesday, November 15 through Sunday, November 19, 2017.

      Based on the novel by Amanda Brown and the 2001 film of the same name, Legally Blonde tells the story
      of Elle Woods, a sorority girl who enrolls at Harvard Law School to win back her ex-boyfriend, Warner.
      Right from the start, Elle encounters negative reactions from both the establishment and the university’s students. During this musical, however, she not only discovers that her knowledge of the law can help others, but she also realizes an equally important faith in herself.

      Clive Barnes, in his New York Post review, wrote that he loved the "effervescent and radiant Laura Belle
      Bundy” (the original Elle Woods), and that the "dances certainly have a slick snap, crackle, and pop."

      The Dean College production of Legally Blonde will take place in the Main Stage in the Campus Center
      at Dean College, 99 Main Street, Franklin at 7:30 p.m. Wednesday – Saturday and 2:00 p.m. Saturday and Sunday. General admission is $22, Seniors $12 and Children $7.
