MU men's soccer Thursday night

I know this on on the MU web site but am copying it here for any comments..


PRINCETON, N.J. - The Monmouth University men's soccer team battle to a scoreless draw at Princeton on Thursday night. The draw improves Monmouth's record to 4-2-2 on the season, while the Tigers push their mark to 0-6-1. Goalkeeper Daniel Schenkel made a career-high eight saves for the Blue and White, as the senior registered his fifth shutout of the season.

Princeton held an 18-8 advantage in shots, and an 8-4 edge in corner kicks in the 110 minutes of action.

"The team showed a lot of character and composure to get a tie on the road," said head coach Robert McCourt. "Princeton was a fiesty team and made it difficult on us tonight."

Senior Tom Gray and junior John Castro fired three shots apiece for the Hawks, while senior Damon Wilson's lone shot came in the second overtime, that went just wide of the cage. Schenkel now has 18 shutouts with the Hawks in his second season with Monmouth.

All I can say must not be reading this blog very carefully..

We have plenty of soccer conversation and comment here on MU men's soccer...

We ( the APP) covered their home game with George Mason...I did a story and a follow on their win over UNC, and a season preview, and any and all soccer comments here are welcome...

I do not feel MU men's soccer has been underplayed
on this blog or in the APP...

At the same time, aside from soccer purists 0-0 scores will rarely excite the populace.

I have to defend Tony on this one. There has been lot of MU soccer talk ( both men's and women's). Unfortunately we don't get many people to keep the dialog going. Not sure if anyone saw this but we dropped from 2nd to 3rd in the north atlanic region rankings. We also did not receive any votes for the top 25 since we lost to Iona.
