Tufts is 2018 DIII men’s soccer national champion.

The Jumbos beat Calvin 2-1 in regulation to secure the school’s third national championship overall, all coming in the past five years. Tufts finished the season unbeaten at 18-0-3 while Calvin dropped to 22-2.

Tufts got on the board just 1:50 into the game on a Calvin Aroh’s first goal of the season and extended its lead to 2-0 in the 30th minute on a goal from Zach Lane. That was all the offense the Jumbos needed to hold off Calvin from clinching its first national title in program history.

Calvin is now 0-4 in DIII men’s soccer national championship games.

To reach the title match, Calvin defeated Chicago 4-1 in the first semifinal game, while Tufts knocked off Rochester 3-1 in the second semifinal.
