The Judges had the closest of the three matches against Harvard on the men's side, picking up six wins against the Crimson. The Judges got two wins each against Harvard from junior sabre fencer Charles Catino (Bellvue, Wash./Hillside) and junior epee Chris Armstrong (Highland Park, Ill./Highland Park).

In Round 2, Brandeis got on the board on the men's side with an 18-9 win over MIT, winning all three weapons. Junior Ian Quin (Ramsey, N.J./Ramsey) went 3-0 for the foil squad, while junior Sam Chestna (Middleboro, Mass./Homeschool) and sophomore Jared Sugarman (Scarsdale, N.Y./Scarsdale) were each 2-1 as the squad went 7-2. Other 2-1 marks for the men against the Engineers came from Armstrong and rookie Harrison Kaish (West Windsor, N.J. / West Windsor-Plainsboro North) in epee and senior Leon Rotenstein (Ashland, Mass./Ashland) and junior Shawn Pyatetsky (Fair Lawn, N.J/Fair Lawn) in sabre.

In the final round of the day, the men nearly avenged an 18-9 loss to Boston College from the Northeast Conference meet, but the Eagles hung on for a 14-13 win. The Judges won epee, 6-3, but BC won foil by the same score, despite a 3-0 mark from Quin. In sabre, the visitors pulled out the 5-4 win to clinch the victory. Kaish went 3-0 to lead the epee squad, with Armstrong going 2-1.
