default article imageMen’s Basketball started their regular season by losing three games to Lehigh, Colgate, and St. Joseph’s, respectively.

Their latest loss came at the hands of the St. Joseph’s Hawks, with a 78-63 loss on Monday night.

Monmouth was within six at halftime, but in the second half St. Joseph’s scored 49 points to have the 15 point victory.

“This was our best game so far this year, we competed the whole time,” said Head Coach King Rice. “You have to take your hat off to those kids because they really stepped up for them. But I told our kids, this was our best game, we fought hard and Saint Joe’s is tough.”

For Monmouth, they shot 65 percent in the second half, compared to only 32 percent in the first.

Monmouth’s overall field goal percentage was better than St. Joseph’s (48 percent to 41 percent). The key difference was 13 second-chance points for St. Joseph’s to only two for Monmouth.

Bowling 11.14.18Monmouth Bowling defeated two nationally-ranked programs in its first meet as a member of the Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference (MEAC), finishing in fourth place with a record of 7-3 at Pleasant Hill Lanes in Wilmington, DE last weekend.

“We started out the weekend strong, but fatigued the last two matches,” said Director of Bowling Karen Grygiel. “We need to continue to work on our spare shooting and endurance. Overall, it was a good weekend.”

The Hawks, who are nationally-ranked themselves at 23rd, opened the meet with six straight wins.

The first five matches of the meet were played on Saturday in traditional format.

After starting off with an 842-755 win over Flordia A&M, Monmouth dominated Bethune-Cookman. The 821-669 decision was their largest victory of the weekend at 152 pins.

Women's Soccer Seasons Ends in NCAA Tournament

W Soccer 11.14.18Women’s Soccer was eliminated from their third straight season of National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) Tournament play by a 2-0 loss to No. 11 Virginia in the first round on Friday night in Charlottesville, VA.

The defeat put an end to Monmouth’s 11-game winning streak which was their longest since the program put 17 straight in the win column between the seasons of 1994 and 1995.

The defense was lockdown on both sides for the majority of the game and especially in the first 25 minutes for the Hawks before allowing a 27th minute goal from six yards out to open the game’s scoring.

Despite conceding a first half goal, junior goalkeeper Amanda Knaub tied her single half saves record with eight saves in the first 45 minutes to keep the Blue and White in the game.

Knaub did not have to make a single save in the second half however as she only saw one shot on goal, which got by her in the 51st minute to extend the Cavaliers’ lead to 2-0 on an unassisted score.

The Hawks’ defense was the highlight of the game, especially the second half. They allowed just one shot on goal thanks to senior defender LeAnne Davis, who had two blocks in the match, as well as freshman midfielder Jill Conklin who had several crucial clears.

Field Hockey Falls to William & Mary in Overtime

FH 11.14.18Fresh off of their Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference (MAAC) Championship win, Field Hockey fell just short of a victory in their National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) Tournament game against William & Mary by a score of 3-2 in Williamsburg, VA last Wednesday.

“I couldn’t be more proud of a team with the amount of dedication and belief they had in one another,” said Head Coach Carli Figlio. “I am proud of everyone on this team and what they accomplished this year and extremely honored to be their coach.” 

For the third time in program history, Monmouth made the trip to the NCAA Tournament and for the third time failed to advance, losing each game by one goal.

The Hawks were first to score when senior forward Kelly Hanna drove right up the middle of the defense with senior forward Georgia Garden Bachop right by her side. The New Zealand native worked her way down to the post and Hanna sent in a well-timed pass that Garden Bachop tucked in for the 1-0 lead.

The Tribe came storming right back as they blasted four shots off in a row, but were unable to connect on any.

Swimming Earns Double Over Howard in Road Meet

F Swimming 11.07.18Men’s Swimming returned home from Emmitsburg, Maryland on Saturday with two wins, sweeping Mount St. Mary’s and Howard, while the women’s team was also victorious against Howard.

“The men were strong right from the start and never gave the opposition a chance on the scoreboard,” said Head Coach Matt Nunnally. “The women’s meet was close throughout coming down to the last relay. Overall, everyone showed a lot of fight and I am excited about what this type of performance can do for our confidence moving forward.”

The men won their match over Mount St. Mary’s by a score of 152.5-108.5 and dominated against Howard 173-95. The wins improved their record to 4-0 on the season.

Field Hockey Beats Fairfield, Wins MAAC Tournament

Field Hockey 11.07.18Field Hockey secured their third Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference (MAAC) Championship since joining the conference in 2013 on Sunday afternoon with a 2-1 win against Fairfield on home turf at So Sweet a Cat Field.

For the third straight year, Monmouth battled Fairfield or the MAAC title.

The visitors decisively played the better first half, outshooting the Hawks 11-3 and holding a 3-1 advantage in the corner department. However, the Stags were unable to capitalize on their shot advantage and both teams ended the first half in a scoreless deadlock.

The Hawks came out storming in the second half and looked like a completely different team. Monmouth played vigorously and it eventually paid off when sophomore midfielder Ireen Frenken scored the game’s opening goal off of a corner attempt that was assisted by junior midfielder Josephine Van der Hoop.

“I think that we had to adjust some things in the second half,” said Head Coach Carli Figlio. “We played a much more aggressive style of play. We get going with that style of play and we play our best hockey.”

Football Holds Charleston Southern to Three Points

Football 11.07.18Football’s defense overpowered the Charleston Southern Buccaneers, defeating them 37-3 on Saturday afternoon. Monmouth had two 100-yard rushers and junior quarterback Kenji Bahar threw for three touchdowns.

“We are very happy with the win today. When we get into Big South play, we know each game holds significate importance and our focus is to go 1-0 that particular week,” said Head Coach Kevin Callahan.

“In that regard, we got the job done today but how we got the job done is the true story here. We knew going in we had to win the line of scrimmage on both sides of the ball and I think you saw just that today. From the defensive line to the front seven stand point, I think we completely dominated the line of scrimmage and controlled the run game and that made it easier to play the passes when they took their shots,” he said.

“Offensively, I think we leaned on them up front. We had two guys go over 100 yards rushing, we were able to pound the way and that opened up some throws and Kenji made some good throws for three scores. It was a total team effort and our team played to the very end,” said Callahan.

The game started off slow for both teams, with each of them unable to get points on their first two drives each.

Then late in the first, The Hawks went 62 yards down the field, 57 of which came on the ground. Monmouth ended the drive with an eight yard rushing touchdown by sophomore running back Pete Guerriero.

Women's Soccer Wins Third-Straight Championship

W Soccer 11.07.18Women’s Soccer won their third-straight Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference (MAAC) Championship with an emphatic 7-1 victory over Siena at Hesse Field on the Great Lawn on Sunday night.

“The MAAC Championship is the goal every season so that’s the expectation for our program,” said Head Coach Krissy Turner. “A terrific regular season capped off by an amazing championship weekend. I am super proud of this team.”

Junior forward Madie Gibson opened the championship’s scoring with her eighth goal of the season after converting a penalty kick in the 16th minute.

Junior midfielder Lexie Palladino scored the only other goal of the first half on a cross from junior forward Dana Scheriff, who finished with two assists on the day.

It was freshman defender Jesi Rossman who helped the Hawks pull away in the second half with two headed goals of her own within the first five minutes. Both goals were assisted on corner kicks from Gibson who finished the MAAC Tournament with two goals and two assists in just two games.

Seniors Alli DeLuca and Jazlyn Moya also got involved in the second half with back to back goals as the Hawks scored four times within the first fifteen minutes.

Siena did pull one back in the 73rd minute, but Monmouth cancelled it out just 65 seconds later.
