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].”

Football Overpowered Princeton on the Road

Football 09.26.18Football was defeated by the Princeton Tigers, 51-9, in the inaugural matchup between the two teams on Powers Field at Princeton Stadium on Saturday night, dropping their record to 2-2 on the season.

“There obviously weren’t a lot of positives out there tonight for us,” Head Coach Kevin Callahan said. “When you play a good football team you need to do things right. We have a long way to go, we have a lot to work on.”

On the first play from scrimmage, sophomore running back Pete Guerriero took off for a 71-yard rush before being tackled inside the Tigers’ red zone. Princeton’s defense forced Monmouth to kick a 27-yard field goal by junior kicker Matt Mosquera to give the Hawks a 3-0 lead.

Princeton answered with back-to-back touchdown drives and the Tigers took a 14-3 lead late in the first quarter.

In the final drive of the first quarter, Monmouth went down the field and scored six after a junior quarterback Kenji Bahar to senior wide receiver Vinny Grasso 37-yard touchdown pass. The two-point conversion after was incomplete, leaving the score at 14-9 in favor of the hosts.

Princeton shutout the Hawks for the rest of the game.

Women's Soccer Blows Past Saint Peter's, 9-0

W Soccer 09.26.18Women’s soccer put their first Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference (MAAC) victory of the season in the books on Saturday night with a dominating 9-0 offensive outpour over Saint Peter’s at Hesse Field on The Great Lawn.

“This was a terrific team performance tonight,” said Head Coach Krissy Turner after her milestone 250th career win. “Unselfish play all over the field created numerous scoring chances for us.”

It was junior forward Madie Gibson who led the charge yet again for the Hawks with two goals, extending her streak against conference foe Saint Peter’s to a perfect three for three with four goals in three games. Gibson finished the night with five points to make it an immense 65 for her career, with 22 goals and 21 assists. Her performance earned her MAAC Offensive Player of the Week honors.

Both of Gibson’s goals came in the first half along with two more from junior midfielder Lexie Palladino in the span of just two minutes. Freshman forward A’Liah Moore scored her first career goal with an overhead kick in the 41st minute as the ball was bouncing in the box to help give the Blue and White an insurmountable 5-0 advantage going into halftime. For Palladino, Saturday’s outburst brought her season total to four goals and nine points. She now sits at eight goals and 22 points for her career.

Senior forward Alli DeLuca kept the momentum rolling in the second half with her fourth goal of the season from 20 yards out off of an assist from junior midfielder Esther Wellman. Wellman kept her big night going with her first goal of the season in the 80th minute to extend Monmouth’s lead to eight goals.

Men's and Women's Cross-Country Win Home Meet

Cross Country 09.26.18Both the men’s and women’s cross-country teams came away with victories at the 2nd Annual Henry Mercer Monmouth Invitational on Saturday morning at Holmdel Park, a meet that both teams have won on numerous occasions in their history.

The men began the morning by dominating a five-mile run. Leading the way were seniors Ryan Mitchell and Kyle Mueller, who finished first and second respectively. A half of a second was all that separated the two as Mitchell finished with a time of 27:02.80 and Mueller with a time of 27:03.10. The victory for Mitchell was the first of his collegiate career.

Sophomore Tim Euler came in third place overall and freshman Louis DiLaurenzio finished behind him to round out not only what was the Hawks’ top four racers, but the top four participants in the meet.

Historically, the men have dominated this home invitational. It was their 14th victory all-time at Saturday’s meet and fifth in the last six years.

 The course features a hilly terrain designed to challenge participants. Head Coach Joe Compagni was pleased with the way his runners handled the level of precision that the course calls for. “The men did a nice job of running under control and being decisive today,” he said.

Following the men’s five-mile run was the women’s 5K. The Blue and White were led by graduate student Christiana Rutkowski, who won her third 5K of the season on Saturday. She finished with a time of 19:04.87.

Last-Minute Goal Adds to Field Hockey's Home Streak

F Hockey 09.26.18Field Hockey continued to roll this weekend at home, handing future America East Conference foe Vermont a 3-1 loss and staging a second half comeback on Sunday to beat Bucknell, 3-2.

“I thought we had some real moments of great hockey,” said Head Coach Carli Figlio. “What we are really hoping to do is string those moments together.”

Twenty-seven minutes of scoreless field hockey was interrupted on Friday when senior forward Kelly Hanna intercepted a pass over the middle and hit senior forward Georgia Garden Bachop with a perfectly placed pass. Bachop timed the pass up and buried the ball into the net to put the Hawks up one. Monmouth would carry that 1-0 advantage into the half. 

Hanna scored the second goal of the game in the 40th minute when freshman defender Lotte Boom turned a defensive play into an offensive chance. Boom came away with the ball after a defensive tackle and made a pinpoint pass to Hanna at the top of the circle. Hanna did not waste the opportunity and put the Hawks up two.

Vermont made it interesting by finding twine in the 49th minute to bring themselves within one. Bachop quickly added an insurance goal a minute later off of an assist from senior forward Elyssa Okken. The Hawks tightened up the defense from there and walked off with a 3-1 win.
