Women's Tennis Falls to UC Irvine in Home Match

W Tennis 10.10.18Women’s Tennis dropped a set of matches against both the University of California Irvine at the Outdoor Tennis Complex in West Long Branch and Providence College in the University of Rhode Island Invitational this past weekend.

On Friday morning, the Hawks hosted their fourth match of the season.

In their three prior home matches, Monmouth defeated the likes of St. Francis Brooklyn and Delaware State before dropping their most recent one to Wagner. Looking to rebound and finish up the home stretch strong, the Hawks were unable to prevail over UC Irvine as they fell by a score of 6-1.

In what was a rare matchup with UC Irvine, the Blue and White’s effort was headlined by the play of freshman Nicole Gasser. Gasser picked up the Hawks’ lone singles victory of the day by a score of 6-3, 6-3.

Outside of Gasser, seniors Alexandra Graff and Maria Ivanova, sophomores Chinonye Gabriel, Sydney DeNardo, and Rachel Rosenthal all dropped their respective singles matches.

Friday marked the first time that the two schools had ever faced each other in women’s tennis.

In doubles play, Monmouth was unable to get on the board with a victory. Gasser and her doubles teammate, Ivanova, dropped a 6-3 result in the first match.

Field Hockey Outscores Opponents 16-2 in Home Stand

Field Hockey 10.10.18Field Hockey continued to roll with two home wins this past weekend, delivering a 10-0 performance on Friday against LIU Brooklyn and securing a 6-2 victory over Bryant on Sunday afternoon at So Sweet a Cat Field.

An offensive onslaught on Friday saw eight different Hawks score against Bryant. Senior forward Georgia Garden Bachop scored a hat trick in the win, earning her Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference (MAAC) Offensive Player of the Week honors for the second week in a row.

“It does not mean too much to me,” said Garden Bachop. “As long as the team is performing well that is more important than any accolades.”

The Hawks were unstoppable, as both familiar and new names contributed in the win. Garden Bachop was the first to score four minutes into the game as she converted a penalty corner.

Senior midfielder Gab Girardi followed ten minutes later as she registered her first goal of the season. Sophomore forward Aly Perez found the back of the cage for her first career goal by scooping a loose ball and blasting through the five hole.

Freshman forward Annick Van Lange notched the fourth goal when she perfectly timed up a pass from senior forward Elyssa Okken to find twine. Garden Bachop netted her second of the day shortly after off of an assist from sophomore defender Hannah Schiavo.

Men's Soccer Slides to Four-Game Losing Streak

M Soccer 10.10.18Men’s Soccer fell to Fairfield after the Stags scored two goals in a little over eight minutes to come from behind and win, 2-1, at Hesse Field on the Great Lawn last Wednesday night.

“It’s a little bit frustrating because we went up a goal, but to be fair, Fairfield I thought played quite well,” said Head Coach Robert McCourt. “They’re a well-coached team, a veteran team, and we’re just trying to find our way, so we just gotta stick together and keep fighting.”

In the nineteenth minute, Fairfield nearly opened the scoring when junior midfielder Diallo Simon-Ponte skied a header over the crossbar from point-blank range.

Ten minutes later, Monmouth took the lead against the run of play. A corner kick was swung into the box, headed towards the far post, headed back into the middle by freshman defender Michael Neff, and then headed into the back of the net by senior forward Luke Bromley.

Though the Stags pressed for an equalizer, the Hawks took the 1-0 lead into the second half.

Just moments after the break, Fairfield had an opportunity to level the score after a Monmouth handball in the box awarded the visitors a penalty kick.

Senior midfielder Diego Casielles stepped up for the Stags and fired a shot toward the bottom right corner, but freshman goalkeeper Sean Murray stretched to his left to make the save.

Women's Soccer Takes Care of Quinnipiac, 4-1

W Soccer 10.10.18Women’s Soccer extended their winning streak to five straight games with Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference (MAAC) victories last Wednesday at Canisius and on Saturday afternoon against Quinnipiac at Hesse Field on the Great Lawn.

The Blue and White’s matchup at Canisius last week ended 2-0 in favor of the visitors.

Senior forward Alli DeLuca scored her fifth goal of the year in the second minute off of an assist from junior midfielder Lexie Palladino.

 The assist extended Palladino’s point streak to four games, the longest of her career, which would come to an end later in the week. Palladino now has 13 points on the season and 26 for her career.

The Hawks took a 1-0 advantage into the half, and junior midfielder Jessica Johnson helped open the second half’s scoring with an assist to junior forward Madie Gibson who found the lower third of the net to double their advantage.

The 2-0 score stood the rest of way thanks to junior goalkeeper Amanda Knaub’s three saves as she collected her seventh shutout of 2018 and 27th for her career.

“This was a good result for us after we faced a lot of adversity with our travel yesterday,” said Head Coach Krissy Turner. “I am very proud of the team for how they handled themselves in earning another shutout and getting three points on the road.”

Men's Soccer Opens Conference Play with Two Losses

M Soccer 10.03.18Men’s soccer fell to Manhattan and Siena in their first two Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference (MAAC) games of the season this past week, slipping to 2-6-1 (0-2-0 MAAC).

Monmouth kicked off their conference schedule on Wednesday night at Hesse Field on The Great Lawn against Manhattan, where they were defeated by a goal to nil.

“They’re older, experienced, a lot of international guys, and they were a good team, so it was going to be a big challenge for us,” said Head Coach Robert McCourt. “I thought we did a good job of limiting their opportunities.”

Though Manhattan dominated possession of the ball and created multiple scoring chances, the two teams entered the half time break at a stalemate thanks to a solid defensive performance from Monmouth.

In the 56th minute, the Jaspers scored the lone goal of the match with a moment of magic. Junior forward Noah Amissah found some space outside of the penalty area and curled a right-footed shot that dinked off of the far post and in to give the visitors the lead.

McCourt said, “Our goal before the game was to force the other team to execute to beat us and not us give them opportunities with our mistakes, and I thought we did that. The guy scored a really nice goal, so you have to give credit.”

Manhattan came inches away from doubling their advantage two minutes later when junior defender Adrien Awana rattled the crossbar with a free kick.

Women's Soccer Edges Manhattan with Overtime Goal

W Soccer 10.03.18Women’s soccer posted two 1-0 shutouts this past week on the road to Manhattan on Wednesday and at Hesse Field on the Great Lawn on Saturday night versus Siena, bumping their Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference (MAAC) record to 3-1-0.

The Hawks traveled up to Riverdale, New York on Wednesday to compete against the Manhattan Jaspers. The two teams were deadlocked at 0-0 for 90 minutes, and the match went into overtime.

In the 100th minute, junior forward Dana Scheriff scored a goal, propelling Monmouth to overtime victory. Sophomore defender Sarina Jones set up the play by running down the right sideline and crossing the ball to junior midfielder Lexie Palladino, who sent a low shot on goal. The effort was blocked by Manhattan’s goalkeeper, but the ball ricocheted back out right in front of Scheriff, who then scored into the empty net.

The Hawks generated most of the action throughout the game and outshot the Jaspers 25-1 including an 8-1 shots on goal advantage. Manhattan only had one corner kick opportunity compared to the Hawks eight.

“We gutted out a win on the road. We created a lot of chances all night and did a great job minimizing their opportunities,” said Head Coach Krissy Turner.

The team is now 1-1-1 in 2018 overtime games. Monmouth has yet to lose a game to Manhattan, their all-time series record has risen to 9-0-0.

Monmouth returned home on Saturday where they welcomed Siena to West Long Branch.

Field Hockey Kicks off MAAC Play with Win at Rider

Field Hockey 10.03.18Field Hockey racked up another win this past weekend, handing in-state rival Rider a 2-1 loss on the road to open up Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference (MAAC) play with a victory.

“The determination that the team came into the game with was impressive,” said Head Coach Carli Figlio. “This was a complete team effort and I am really proud of the composure of a really young team in a very big game.”

Senior forward Georgia Garden Bachop continues to show why she was named 2018 MAAC Preseason Co-Player of the Year. She scored both goals for Monmouth on Friday night as the team improved to an overall record of 6-5.

Rider opened the scoring in the 16th minute when a nifty pass from freshman midfielder Kat Conroy left senior midfielder Jessica Randazzo a wide-open net for an easy goal.

The Hawks quickly regrouped and refocused. Three minutes later, a shot from the circle by senior forward Kelly Hanna was deflected by Bachop into the net. With the assist, Hanna has moved into the program’s top ten all-time assist holders.

The score remained deadlocked at 1-1 through to the half time break.

The Broncs threatened immediately into the start of the second half. A corner attempt was followed by a shot that was kept out by freshman goalkeeper Kate O’Hogan. O’Hogan made a total of three saves in the game en route to her second win of the season.

Football Defeats Wagner with Late Touchdown

Football 10.03.18Tied at 47 with 1:14 left, senior wide receiver Reggie White Jr. scored the game-winning 84-yard touchdown which set the program record 213 career receptions to send football past the Wagner Seahawks 54-47 on Saturday afternoon.

“[The game-winning touchdown] was huge. Darnell Leslie told me that I was going to break the record on a TD,” White Jr. said. “I was running down the field and he called it. As soon as I scored and pointed right to him. [Pete] Righi and Juwon [Farri] had huge blocks. They opened it up for me and I just ran the rest of the way. Without them that play wouldn’t have happened.”

After being down 47-32 with 12:49 left in the game, Monmouth scored on three straight touchdown drives to finish the 15 point comeback.

On the opening drive for Wagner, a botched snap traveled 20 yards backwards to their own end zone which resulted in a safety. After a Monmouth interception on the next drive, Wagner scored three straight passing touchdowns to make the score 21-2 midway through the second.

The Hawks answered with three straight scoring drives of their own. First was a junior quarterback Kenji Bahar to White Jr. five-yard touchdown pass. After a three and out by the Seahawks, sophomore running back Pete Guerriero scored on a five-yard rushing touchdown. After another Wagner three and out, Bahar scored on a 68-yard rushing touchdown after breaking a few tackles along the way, giving Monmouth the 22-21 lead.

“I made two moves and I was still up and I was like ‘I might score’ and I just ran to the end zone,” Bahar said. “There was a good block by Juwon [Farri] and Lonnie [Moore].”
