The Geophysical Laboratory and DTM went head-to-head on October 27, 2017 for the annual interdepartmental soccer match.  The GL pistons threatened early with Gus Borstad and Alex Poltorak connecting on several give-and-gos to advance the ball up the field. Andrew Steele and Abhisek Basu pressured the DTM defense but could not make it past DTM Mud Cup veterans, Adelio Contreras, TJ Rodigas and goalkeeper Conel Alexander.
