2007 Men's Soccer

2007 Men's Soccer (17-2-4)
The 2007 men's soccer team captured its first NCAA Division II National Championship in program history with a 1-0 victory over 16th-ranked Lincoln Memorial University (Tenn.) at the Orange Beach Sportsplex in Orange Beach, Ala. Franklin Pierce claimed the sixth national championship in University history, adding to the five women's soccer crowns in the mid-to-late 1990's. The Ravens first men's title came in the program's third Final Four appearance and after they were national runners up in 2005.


1999 Women's Soccer

1999 Women's Soccer (20-1)
The Ravens were all business in 1999. Franklin Pierce's quest for a fifth-straight NCAA title came up short during the 1998 season when it dropped a 4-0 decision to Lynn in the NCAA Final Four in Boca Raton, Fla. The 1999 edition used that as motivation to get back to the top and did so by brushing aside Cal Poly Pomona, 3-1, in the national title game. The Ravens out-scored the opposition, 11-3, throughout the NCAA Tournament. It was the program's fifth NCAA title during a six-year span.


1997 Women's Soccer

1997 Women's Soccer (21-0)
The 1997 Ravens carried on the tradition that season as they captured the school's fourth-straight NCAA title. Franklin Pierce had one of the wildest runs to the championship that season as it played in a combined eight overtimes in the NCAA Tournament, prior to the final game. The Ravens downed Adelphi, 2-1, in four overtimes in the NCAA Quarterfinals, and then needed to go another four overtimes to down Cal State-Dominguez Hills, 4-3, in the Final Four. The national title game proved to be much easier for the Ravens as they knocked off West Virginia Wesleyan, 3-0, to again finish No. 1.


1996 Women's Soccer

1996 Women's Soccer (18-1)
The 1996 Franklin Pierce squad made it three in a row for NCAA championships when it defeated Lynn, 1-0, in the national title game. This time, however, the Ravens earned the national championship on the road as the NCAA Final Four was hosted in Boca Raton, Fla. Franklin Pierce out-scored the opposition, 103-9, that season, including a 4-0 triumph over Merrimack in the NCAA New England Regional Championship in Rindge.


1995 Women's Soccer

1995 Women's Soccer (20-0)
The 1995 Franklin Pierce team was arguably one of the top women's soccer teams in NCAA history, regardless of division. The Ravens out-scored the opposition by an astounding 129-4 and claimed the school's second-consecutive NCAA Division II National Championship. After allowing a goal in each of the first three games, the Ravens posted 15-consecutive shutouts. Sonoma State scored once in Franklin Pierce's 3-1 win in the NCAA Final Four to snap the streak, but the Ravens responded with another shutout, this time a 5-0 triumph over Barry University in the national title game at Crystal Field in Rindge.


1994 Women's Soccer

1994 Women's Soccer (19-0)
The 1994 Ravens captured the school's first NCAA Division II National Championship in any sport. Franklin Pierce went a perfect 19-0 that season and posted a 6-0 mark in New England Collegiate Conference play. The Ravens out-scored the opposition, 114-3, that season and after yielding a goal in a 5-1 win in the season-opener against Quinnipiac, they posted 13-consecutive shutouts. Franklin Pierce hosted Regis University of Colorado at Crystal Field in Rindge for the national title and scored twice in posting a 2-0 victory. It was the first of five NCAA titles in a six-year span for the Ravens from 1994-99.
