For the second straight week, one team left the Reverse Survivor island this past weekend in the 2019 Reverse Survivor competition.* The America East and SoCon have one representative left. Last week, the second SoCon team that was still in the competition defeated a team that’s been very familiar with Reverse Survivor.

The team that is on to better thing:

We’re down to our final two teams. The race has officially heated up to a boiling point.

Binghamton 0-7 at Stony Brook 3/29 at UMBC 4/6

Candidates To Leave The Island

The team that has the best chance to leave the island this week and potentially next week is Bellarmine. The Knights are at Mercer, who just left the island this past weekend, followed by a home game against VMI. Bellarmine played well in the first half against the Richmond Spiders before the defending SoCon champs pulled away in the second half.

As for the Binghamton Bearcats, they take on a Stony Brook team that hasn’t been consisted. Their best win is Hofstra by a goal. Prior to their win over UMBC last week, they gave the Hartford Hawks their first win of the season. I wouldn’t be shocked if this game is a close one. After the Seawolves, the Bearcats host UMBC the following week. The Retrievers are 1-6, their lone win coming against Mount St. Mary’s, and have Lafayette this weekend. UMBC has lost twice this season (Brown and Vermont) and could provide a way for Binghamton to get their first win. The Bearcats still have to face Hartford in less than a month.

*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.
