Men's Soccer Falls in their Second Game of the Season

WSOC 09.11.19Men’s soccer lost their second game of the season to the University of Pennsylvania by a score of 2-0 on Friday night at Hesse Field on the Great Lawn.

The Hawks fell to a 2-0 deficit early in the contest and were never able to claw their way back into it. Penn scored their first goal of the game just nine minutes into the match and quickly followed with another goal in the 17th minute. That would be the end of the scoring for the rest of the match as it turned out.

“We had a tough start to the game,” said Head Coach Robert McCourt. “Full credit to Penn for that.”

Penn had the advantage on the stat sheet as well. They out-shot Monmouth nine to four on the night while also not allowing a single shot on goal.

Monmouth’s best opportunity came in the 30th minute when junior midfielder Chris Scheuerman sent a bullet at the goal that flew wide.

Redshirt sophomore goalkeeper Sean Murray finished the day with three saves on five shots on goal. One of his saves was a diving stop that came in the 49th minute that kept the game at a two-goal deficit. In just 19 career starts Murray now has a grand total of 97 saves.

The Hawks did not lose in every statistical category, however. They did lead in the saves department 3-0 but were unable to get a single shot on goal. Monmouth also took five corner kicks while the Quakers only had four.

Women's Soccer Shuts Out FDU for their First Win

WSOC 09.11.19The Monmouth University women’s soccer team is back at it again picking up their first win of the 2019 season this past Friday night, Sept. 6, against the Farleigh Dickenson University (FDU) Knights at University Stadium in Teaneck, NJ.

The Hawks won with a 1-0 sweep, adding to their 13-game winning streak in their series against FDU. They lead the all-time series 17-1-2.

During the first 45 minutes of the match, Monmouth attempted eight shots on goal, half of which came from fifth year forward Madie Gibson. Gibson’s four shots on goal is a team-high for the Hawks. In the seventh minute Gibson found her way behind FDU defensive lines and attacked with her second shot on goal, but FDU senior goalkeeper Amanda Fitzgerald recorded a save on the attempt.

In the 11th minute of the game the Knights created their first opportunity for scoring when they earned a corner kick executed by sophomore midfielder Lea Egner. For the next ten minutes both teams had possession of the ball but it wasn’t until the 20th minute of the match where FDU freshman midfielder Naemi Hausen attempted an in-play shot on goal. However, Monmouth’s senior goalkeeper Amanda Knaub snagged the attempt.

Both the Hawks and the Knights had corner kicks and shot on goal opportunities throughout the rest of the first period, but neither team was successful in their attempts.

During the beginning of the second period, Gibson and senior forward Dana Scheriff perused back to back shots on goal, but again, Fitzgerald deterred both of them.

Field Hockey Wins Twice on the Road to go to 3-1

FH 09.11.19Field hockey put together an undefeated week of play going 2-0 while improving their early season record to 3-1 with road wins at Hofstra and Villanova.

Wednesday’s victory in New York was of the shutout variety by the Hawks who had a plethora of players contributing to the effort with four of them finding the back of the net in the 6-0 final. Sophomore forward Annick van Lange and freshman forward Yasmin Pratt led the charge with two goals a piece and a combined ten total shots. Both players found the scoreboard in the first half of play giving Monmouth the 2-0 advantage at the break.

Van Lange’s second goal of the afternoon came just minutes into the second half after Pratt possessed the ball into the Hofstra zone and assisted the 3-0 score. The Hawks did not let up from here as they continued to pour on the offense with three more goals in the second half despite being interrupted by an hour-long weather delay due to lightning.

Senior midfielder Josephine van der Hoop and graduate student midfielder Stefanie Bigler scored within the same minute on corner and fast break opportunities making the score 5-0.

The final goal of the afternoon came after the weather delay when Pratt capitalized on a deflection in front of the net with just minutes to go for her fifth point of the game and second straight multi-goal performance.

“It was good to see us bounce back from Sunday,” said Head Coach Carli Figlio. “We need to continue to get 1 percent better every day.”

Football Gets First Win Led By Player of the Week

FB 09.11.19Monmouth football recorded their first victory of the 2019 campaign against visiting Lafayette on Saturday behind three players who received all Big South honors including junior running back Pete Guerriero who ran the ball 26 times for 152 yards and a touchdown.

The game got off to a slow, defensive start as the first couple drives for both teams resulted in zero points including punts and a Hawks’ turnover on the offensive side of the ball. The blue and white bounced back strong however to close out the first quarter of play with a 12-play, 86-yard drive that began on their own 14-yard line and culminated with a Guerriero 19-yard touchdown. His performance ultimately led to being named the Big South Offensive Player of the Week as well as an honorable mention for Football Championship Subdivision (FCS) National Offensive Player of the Week.

“Pete ran tough all day,” said Head Coach Kevin Callahan. “You have to give fifth year running back Devell Jones and the offensive line credit too for what they were able to do in the closing minutes of the game to grind out those tough yards.”

The Hawks continued to move the ball into Lafayette territory in the second quarter of play as they were able to tack onto their lead with two field goals from senior kicker Matt Mosquera of 23 and 35-yard distances.

The visiting Leopards were able to get on the scoreboard late in the first half after a 13-yard rushing touchdown capped off their long, 15-play 75-yard drive to bring the score closer at 13-7.

Softball Swept by Marist in Two-Game Set

SB 04.24.19Last week, Softball added one win to their record, but it was followed by three straight losses as the Hawks split at Lafayette in a doubleheader last Wednesday before falling to Marist in another road doubleheader on Friday.

In Game One against Lafayette, the Hawks came out on top with a 9-0 shutout. They got on the board quickly and scored a run in the top of the first inning as a result of junior utility player Amanda Hopeck being hit by a pitch with the bases loaded, bringing home junior first baseman Kayla Rosado.

Two more runs were scored in the top of the second inning to advance the Hawks to 3-0 over the Leopards. Senior outfielder Jasmine Higa walked to first base and was followed by freshman infielder and outfielder Lindsey Baron. Baron smashed a two-run home run to center field, bringing home Higa and herself. In the top of the fourth inning, junior outfielder Amber Wozniak singled up the middle while Baron was on third base, resulting in an RBI for Wozniak and another run for the team.

In the top of the fifth inning, sophomore outfielder Katie Harrington crushed her second career home run to left field and earned the team another run, making the score 5-0. The Hawks scored four runs in top of the sixth inning, securing their 9-0 shutout victory. The bases were loaded with sophomore outfielder Morgan Maziarz on third base pinch running for junior outfielder Sam Tomasetti, Rosado on second, and Wozniak on first. Hopeck hit an RBI single to center field, bringing home Maziarz. With the bases still loaded, Harrington popped out to left field and Rosado tagged up for another run. Junior infielder Deangie Jimenez singled out to left field to score Wozniak, followed by sophomore catcher Erika Coreth also singling out to left field to bring home Hopeck for the ninth and final run.

Men's Tennis Wins Regular Season Championship

M Tennis 04.24.19Men’s Tennis won their fifth-straight Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference (MAAC) Regular Season Championship after defeating Marist, 6-1, in West Long Branch last Wednesday before defeating Niagara 7-0 in their final game of the regular season on Saturday.

“I feel honored to be a part of this program,” said senior Srdjan Jakovljevic. “Being a senior, it’s even more surreal that I have the opportunity to continue my career as long as possible during the postseason. I hope we can win the fifth-straight championship and carry on the winning mentality to the NCAA’s (National Collegiate Athletic Association).”

Jakovljevic got it started in Monmouth’s Regular Season Championship clinching win over Marist with 6-0 and 6-2 singles wins. Senior Nicola Pipoli suffered the Hawks’ lone singles loss next in a 5-1 decision.

Junior Max Benaim, sophomore Will Cooke Wharton, and junior Sergio Martinez all won their singles matches with 6-1 and 6-2 wins. Senior Alberto Giuffrida won the last singles match. He rebounded from a 5-7 defeat in the opener with a 6-4 win before winning the deciding game 10-4.

In doubles, Pipoli and Cooke Wharton won their matchup 6-3 and Benaim and Martinez combined for a 7-6 win. Monmouth was defeated in the third and final doubles matchup when Jakovljevic and Giuffrida fell by a score of 7-6.

Golf Competes in MAAC Championships

GOLF 04.24.19Men’s and Women’s Golf finished seventh and eighth, respectively, in the Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference (MAAC) Championships in Lake Buena Vista, Florida this past weekend.

The men’s team shot a final round 308 as a team, led by senior Drake Ferriter, who shot his third consecutive 76 on the final day to lead the Hawks’ roster while placing 13th overall in the tournament.

The finish for Ferriter was the second time this season he has led the Blue and White’s card and the eighth time he has done so in his collegiate career.

Ferriter was able to birdie back-to-back holes on seven and eight before heading to the back nine one stroke under par in the final round.

His last collegiate finish makes it 69 of 80 career rounds that the senior was able to put up a score in the seventies.

Finishing closely behind him on the Monmouth side was sophomore Ron Robinson with a final round score of 78 and freshman Brendan Smith as they both finished in 23rd place with the same three-day scores, four strokes back of Ferriter.

Robinson’s total score for the weekend of 232 was a career-low in three consecutive rounds of play.

Junior Andy Stock also shot a 77 in two of his three rounds in Florida, which was strong enough to place him in a tie for 29th in the tournament.

Women's Lacrosse Earns No. 2 Playoff Seed

WLAX 04.24.19Women’s Lacrosse finished the regular season by winning their final two games, rolling past Manhattan, 19-5, on Wednesday at Kessler Stadium and defeating Quinnipiac by a score of 19-12 on Saturday on the road in Connecticut.

On Wednesday afternoon, the Hawks dominated their Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference (MAAC) opponent Manhattan in an important game to determine the order of the standings.

It took only 51 seconds into the game for Manhattan to put up the first points.

They then got out to a 2-1 lead with 27:33 remaining in the first half.

Monmouth started to run away with the game as they scored eight unanswered goals, including four from junior attacker Allison Turturro.

She finished the game with eight total goals, tying her personal best and a school record.

Turturro combined with sophomore attacker Caroline Bleck for the first five Monmouth goals of the second half, making the score 14-4 with just 18:53 left in the contest, proving to be too much of a deficit for Manhattan to overcome.

“We are in championship play right now, every game including regular season games are championship mentality,” said Head Coach Jordan Trautman. “We talked about every game from here on out are ‘do or die’. I’ve always wanted to be part of a program that is peaking at the right time and I’m confident we are doing that.”
