    Boulevard victory escapes men’s soccer again

    Men's Soccer game

    Battle of the Boulevard demons continue to haunt Lipscomb as they fail to score against their archrivals NASHVILLE – Over the past three and a half years, a generation of Lipscomb fans has watched their men’s soccer team accomplish just about everything imaginable for a mid-major program.

But the one thing they’ve never managed in this golden age of Bisons soccer is the holy grail for any Lipscomb sport–laying claim to the Boulevard and beating Belmont.
