We’re down to the final four teams in the 2019 Reverse Survivor competition.* The America East and Southern Conferences each have two representatives. Last week, the best winless team finally got a win and the two-time defending Reverse Survivor champions were eliminated.

The teams that are on to better thing:

With the small number of teams we have this week, there are no Reverse Survivor-offs.

Candidates To Leave The Island

With Penn winning last week, who’s the best winless team in the country? I think it’s between Bellarmine and Hartford. The Knights are the only team with three one-goal losses and have four players with 10 or more points, the most out of any Reverse Survivor team. The Hawks are the only team with a player with at least 20 goals and assists (Dylan Jinks) and at least 10 assists (Ty Thompson). They’ve also registered at least 10 goals in four of their six games.

As for the other two teams, Mercer, despite losing their last two games by a goal, have scored 10 goals only once. They’ve hovered around the 8-9 goal range for the majority of the season. Binghamton has played in four games, two of them scoring at least 10 goals and having one loss by a goal, but their scoring has dipped to seven and six goals respectively in their last two games.

Bellarmine opens up conference play against Jacksonville on Saturday. The Dolphins are 1-6 and struggled in nonconference play, but if last year’s results go the same, expect JU to be a better looking team in conference play. Richmond follows the following week.

Binghamton has two games this week. They host Army West Point this afternoon before traveling to Dartmouth to take on the Big Green. That could be their way out of the island.

Hartford hosts Stony Brook on Saturday, but do travel to Quinnipiac next Tuesday. That could be their first win of the season.

Mercer hosts Air Force on Saturday before traveling to Lexington to take on VMI next weekend. VMI could be Mercer’s first win.

Each team has a really good chance to get their first win of the season in their next two games. Bellarmine’s best chance to win is their first game, while the other three have better chances in their second.

*St. Bonaventure is also winless, while Hampton has not won a game against a Division I opponent. Since the Pirates are still in a transition schedule that features many Division II and III schools and the Bonnies are a first-year program, they are not eligible for this season. To include those two programs in this competition misses the point.
