Field Hockey Defeated Twice in Michigan Road Trip

Field Hockey 09.12.18Field Hockey was on the road this weekend where they took both Michigan State and No. 7 Michigan into overtime but failed to bring home a win, losing 2-1 in both matches and slipping to 2-4 on the season.

“It is always great to be able to compete against a Big Ten opponent and get tested early in the season,” said Head Coach Carli Figlio.

Monmouth gave Michigan State all they could handle on Friday before ultimately losing in the fifth round of a shootout, 2-1. The Hawks took the lead after a scoreless first half when senior forward Georgia Garden Bachop buried a nifty backward shot right in front of the net in the 39th minute. Monmouth came within three minutes of a victory and shut out, but the Spartans tied it to force overtime. 

A scoreless overtime lead to a shootout where sophomore midfielder Ireen Frenken converted her try and was matched by Michigan State. Monmouth’s second attempt went to freshman forward Annick Van Lange who was stopped while the Spartans converted theirs to take the 1-0 lead. Bachop was tasked with the third attempt and came through while the hosts failed to convert, leaving the game was tied once again. 

The fourth try was given to junior forward Josephine van der Hoop whose shot found the post. Michigan State’s attempt was successful to regain the lead. Frenken was able to convert the fifth attempt after senior forward Kelly Hanna was tripped and the team was awarded another chance. The Spartans scored on their final attempt and walked away with the win.

Men's Soccer Grabs First Win with Late Goal

M Soccer 09.12.18Men’s soccer gained its first win of the season away to Princeton on Saturday night on Myslik Field at Roberts Stadium thanks to a late goal from senior defender and Captain Zachary Pereira.

“It felt good to get a win against a very good team in Princeton, especially at their facility where it’s hard to get a win,” said Head Coach Robert McCourt. “Our guys showed a lot of character, and we were up against it for a lot of the game.”

Princeton were prevented from having an opportunity to take the lead early on when the referee’s initial call for a penalty kick was revoked and changed to a corner kick.

Much of the game was played in Monmouth’s half as the hosts dominated possession and probed for an opening goal. Princeton came close to finding that goal just before halftime when senior defender Sean McSherry found his way past three defenders after a turnover, but his effort was saved.

Monmouth freshman goalkeeper Sean Murray made seven saves to keep his team in the game. The stopper was awarded both Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference (MAAC) Defensive Player of the Week as well as Rookie of the Week honors for his efforts.

In the 57th minute, Princeton were once again denied a goal-scoring opportunity by the officials. Freshman midfielder Moulay Hamza Kanzi Belghiti put the ball into the back of the net after connecting with a cross into the box, but the referee blew for a high leg and disallowed the goal due to dangerous play.

Women's Soccer Comes From Behind to Beat Rutgers

W Soccer 09.12.18Women’s soccer came from behind on the road to defeat in-state rival Rutgers, 2-1, on Friday and played American University to a scoreless draw after 120 minutes at Hesse Field on The Great Lawn on Sunday.

“This was a great victory on the road against a quality opponent, I am super proud of the effort we gave tonight,” said Head Coach Krissy Turner.

Rutgers opened the scoring just seven minutes into the match through sophomore forward Amirah Ali. The attacker beat two defenders as she cut in on her right foot across the top of the box before firing a shot. Junior goalkeeper Amanda Knaub dove to her right to make the save, but the ball deflected off of her palm and into the back of the net.

Monmouth senior forward Alli DeLuca responded quickly with her third goal of the season on a blocked shot. DeLuca currently leads the team with seven points on the season.

No sooner did junior midfielder Lexie Palladino give the Blue and White the 2-1 advantage that they would end up holding onto with her goal from 18 yards out. The 30th minute goal was the second of Palladino’s season and also her second game-winning goal of her career.

Knaub finished off Friday’s game strong, saving five shots in the second half to preserve the victory. The milestone win was the first against Rutgers since Aug.  2010 for the Hawks.

Football Explodes Past Hamptom in Home Opener

Football 09.12.18Football defeated future conference opponent Hampton 56-28 after being down 14-0 in the first quarter.

“It is six straight wins here at Kessler Stadium and it is our first win of 2018 and a lot occurred out there that we can build upon,” Head Coach Kevin Callahan said.

The Hawks started off the game down 14-0 in the first half of the first quarter after Hampton scored on back-to-back opening drives.

MU struck at the end of the quarter from a senior running back Devell Jones three-yard rushing touchdown to make it 14-7.

Junior running back Pete Guerriero scored his first of three rushing touchdowns to tie the game at 14 all.

“We got to keep playing, next play. We have to settle down and do our jobs,” Callahan said to his team after going down 14-0. “Once we got a couple of scores on the board we were able to gain confidence and that confidence on offense transcended to our defense.”

The Blue and White scored two more rushing touchdowns before the end of the half, again by Jones and Guerriero to make it 28-14 at halftime.

Monmouth continued the scoring in the second half with two junior quarterback Kenji Bahar to senior tight end Jake Powell touchdown passes to make it 42 straight unanswered points for the Hawks.

Men’s Lacrosse Clinches Postseason Berth

M LAX 04.18.18Men’s lacrosse clinched a spot in their fourth consecutive Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference (MAAC) tournament with a thrilling 9-7 victory over conference foe Marist. The Hawks still have two regular season games left on their schedule but they have officially secured themselves into 2018 postseason play.

It was junior attack Griffin Figel who led the charge once again for Monmouth, recording his second hat trick in a row while extending his point’s streak to an impressive 13 straight games.

Figel found the back of the net early in the first quarter to give MU a 2-1 lead after senior attack Bryce Wasserman had opened the game’s scoring in the first minute of play. The goal increased the senior’s record-breaking point’s streak to 28 games along with extending a 14-game goal streak.

Marist came storming back in the game however as the Red Foxes finished the first quarter strong with two goals of their own to take a 3-2 lead going into the first intermission.

“We knew it was going to be a tough game today,” Head Coach Brian Fisher said. “I think every time we play Marist it’s a tough game.”

Junior attack Hunter Jones and sophomore midfielder Zach Clemente highlighted the second quarter for the Hawks leading the way with three goals and an assist between the two of them.

MU went into the half down 6-5 which remained the score for most of the third quarter until freshman midfielder Casey Kimmel notched the equalizer for the seventh goal of his first campaign.

Baseball Walks off Against Sacred Heart in Extras

Baseball 04.18.18Baseball defeated Sacred Heart University with a walk off double by sophomore infielder Johnny Zega in the bottom of the tenth. The Hawks opened a six-game homestand last week, winning four of the first five games.

The four-win week was highlighted by a doubleheader sweep by the Hawks on Saturday afternoon. They picked up wins over Maine and Sacred Heart.

In game one, Maine opened a 3-0 lead over Monmouth by the third inning. In the Hawks’ half of the inning, they responded by tying the game in one swing. Junior outfielder Kyle Norman tripled to right-center field and drove in three runs.

The Black Bears were held without a run the rest of the way as the Hawks’ offense went to work. In the fourth inning, the blue and white capitalized on a sacrifice fly to take their first lead of the afternoon at 4-3.

In the sixth, Norman reached on an error committed by the third baseman as another run crossed the plate which extended the lead to two runs. Junior catcher J.D. Andreessen put a bow on the game, hitting a two-run homer to left field in the eighth which made the score 7-3. The blue and white would seal the game in the ninth to win by the same 7-3 score.

The Hawks’ offense was given every opportunity to erase the early three-run deficit thanks to senior right-hander Ricky Dennis. Dennis picked up his third win of the season as he worked through seven innings, fanning eight batters in the process.

Game two of the doubleheader was nothing short of perhaps Monmouth’s most dramatic victory of the season as they went the distance against Sacred Heart.

The games against Manhattan were the definition of nail biters. In game one, Manhattan scored the first run during the top of the fourth with an RBI single, putting them ahead 1-0.

However, in the bottom of the seventh inning, senior infielder Alex Holzman singled to right center, and freshman outfielder Morgan Maziarz pinch ran for her. Maziarz advanced to third base off of a single hit by sophomore shortstop Deangie Jimenez.

With two outs on the count, freshman outfielder Katie Harrington stepped up to the plate with runners on first and third, she belted a triple to right field and got the two runners on base to score for the 2-1 win over Manhattan.

In game two, the Hawks used the energy from the previous game and got off to a quick start. In the bottom of the first inning, senior outfielder Katie Baron hit an RBI double to allow senior outfielder Chloe Howerth to score. Then shortly after during the bottom of the second inning, Holzman went yard with a solo home run, advancing the score to 2-0.

With one out, Hopeck made the score even closer by hitting a double down the line, scoring sophomore outfielder Amber Wozniak and freshman infielder Bri Battavio who were waiting for the chance to reach home plate on second and third base. The Hawks then won 7-6 over Manhattan due to Harrington reaching on an error than allowed Holzman to score the winning run.

Women’s Lacrosse Breaks Canisius Winning Streak

W LAX 04.11.18Women lacrosse delivered two impressive wins this past week. A balanced team effort resulted in a 14-11 victory over Fairfield on Wednesday and this was followed up with a 14-12 win over perennially dominant Canisius on Sunday. With the two wins Monmouth now stands at 5-8 overall and 3-1 in Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference (MAAC) play. 

It took a team effort to end Canisius’s 27 straight regular season game winning streak on a cold Sunday morning up in Buffalo. Three goal games from sophomore midfielder Chloe Novak, senior midfielder Caroline Corbliss, and senior midfielder Alexa Smith combined with a nine save game from junior goalkeeper Riley Brager helped the Hawks come away with the 14-12 victory.  

“Riley had another hugely consistent day today,” Head Coach Jordan Trautman said. “She made a really important save at the end of the game which really clinched the outcome.”

Even though the Hawks never gave up the lead the win did not come easily. Monmouth scored four times over the first ten minutes to take an early 4-1 lead. Canisius battled back with three straight goals to tie it up at four with ten left to the half. Each team exchanged goals with each other over the remaining ten minutes and went to the half tied at six a piece.

Monmouth struck first in the second thanks to Smith’s second of the day which was followed up with a goal from Novak. The Griffins answered right back with two goals of their own with 22 minutes left to play and it was tied up at eight.     

Novak put the Hawks up again off an assist from junior attack Jenny Staines, who  followed up with a goal of her own shortly after. With 20 minutes left on the clock the Hawks had the two-goal lead which they would not surrender over the remainder of the half. Monmouth managed to put four more up on the board and a clutch save from Brager sealed the 14-12 win.
