Perfect Season Remembered


St. Lawrence University's 1999 men's soccer team, which won the NCAA Division III national championship, was inducted into the school's Athletic Hall of Fame this weekend.
The Saints became the first Division III squad to produce a perfect season that year, finishing 22-0, capped by a 2-0 win at Wheaton (Ill.) College in the national championship game.
SLU was dominant that year, producing 12 shutouts and holding opponents to an average of 3.7 shots-per game. The Saints trailed for a total of 48 minutes and 11 seconds the entire year.

Most of the members of the team came back for the induction and watched the current men's soccer team defeat RIT 1-0 on Saturday afternoon. When the game was over the players had their own turn on the field.

Canton native Bob Durocher, who is still coaching the Saints, had just ended his 10th year when his team won the national title.

The Saints captain that year was senior midfielder Dan Annan, who also was the national Player of the Year.

One of SLU's top offensive performers that season was Jamal Ballantyne.

Senior fullback Mike Berner was one of the players who made it hard for opposing players to get shots. But in the championship game Berner made history of his own, scoring the second goal of the contest on a shot that he headed, while facing away from the goalie, into the net.
