Please make any comments here

Men's soccer
WEST LONG BRANCH, N.J. - In the 82nd minute, Monmouth junior Andreas Klang (Gothemberg, Sweden) notched his first goal of the season, in just his third game of the year, to lead the Hawks to a 1-0 win over St. Francis College, in Northeast Conference action on Sunday afternoon. With the win, the Hawks improve to 8-2-2 on the season and 3-0 in the NEC, while SFC falls to 3-7-3, 1-3-0 in league play.

Monmouth is now unbeaten in its last 22 Northeast Conference matches (17-0-5), dating back to the 2004 season.

Women's soccer
FAIRFIELD, CONN. - The Monmouth University women’s soccer team played to a 1-1 double overtime draw in Northeast Conference action at Sacred Heart, on Sunday afternoon. The draw moves the Hawks’ record to 7-2-4 overall and 3-0-1 in the NEC, while the Pioneers remain winless at 0-9-4 overall (0-1-3 NEC). The tie also extends Monmouth’s unbeaten streak to nine games.

Monmouth sophomore Andrea Lopez (Oakhurst, N.J./Ocean Township) gave the Hawks the lead in the seventh minute, beating SHU goalie Meghan Reichelt with an unassisted goal off a blast out front by Alessandra DeTata (Brick, N.J./Brick) that was blocked by the SHU defense.

Sacred Heart junior Janice Rodriguez scored her first goal of the season in the 78th minute on a feed from Allison Rojas to knot the score at 1-1. Rojas, who tallied her second assist of the year, made a pass through to Rodriguez, and the junior deposited it into the right corner to beat the diving Hawk netminder Lia Fierro (Short Hills, N.J./Millburn).

Some how the men's team has found a way to come up with a big play when it's needed. This is where depth, GREAT players and coaching comes in late in a game. I can't even imagine what this team is going to be like when the current freshman become upperclassmen and the next bluechip group of freshmen come in. The bandwagon is starting to load up.

Klang is one of the players that has been ailing, too. So now maybe he's back at close to full strength.

I would like to see this team score a few more goals - but, then again, we are talking soccer here...

MU (8-2-2) is second in the NEC in goals (19) to 9-0-1 Q pac (22) which MU hosts in a potential first place show down Oct. 28...

By the way..Kinne is NEC Rookie of the Week...

I agree Andreas Klang's goal on Sunday was a beatiful result of great teamwork and unselfish play.
I can't wait until we are 1--% healthy, with Chase, Angelo, and Prajca (sp?) back.
Tony I guess maybe you are an American sportsfan thinking if a lot of point on the scoreboard are good more is better. But when you watch the play develope up the field through 3 or 4 or more players to end in a score it becomes a beautiful accomplishment of a team effort. The term The beautiful game has it's origins in this effort.
Keep watching you'll be a full fledged fan soon enough!!
