Husky Sports Roundup for today, September 11th, 2011
Football: UConn lost disappointingly to Vanderbilt, 24-21. The Huskies are now 1-1 on the season. We had a defensive touchdown and a special teams touchdown, plus two field goals and a 2-point conversion. However, we have not had an offensive touchdown against an FBS team since we played Cincinnati on November 27th, 2010 and Jordan Todman ran it in with 3:49 left. That’s over 12 quarters without one. They say defense and special teams wins games, but you have to have at least a mediocre offense. We don’t. Johnny McEntee threw three interceptions, and they cost us.
Women’s Volleyball: UConn split their two games in New Hampshire yesterday. They lost to Indiana State in straight sets, but then beat the host Wildcats 25-21, 25-20, 25-11. Holly Strauss-O’Brien got her 100th win. The Huskies are 6-4 on the season And will be in Blacksburgh, Va next weekend for the Hokie Classic, where they will face Chatanooga, Virginia, and host Virginia Tech.
Field Hockey: The #4 Huskies defeated the Albany Great Danes 1-0 thanks to a goal by Marie Elena Bolles. The Huskies are 4-0 on the season, and will host Drexel today at 2:00 PM.
Men’s Soccer: The #3 ranked men will face SMU in the second game of the Hurricane Classic at Tulsa today at 12:00 PM. The game will be on WHUS.org and WHUS FM 91.7.
Women’s Soccer: Fresh off an upset win against Boston University, the Huskies will travel to Cambridge to face the Harvard Crimson today at 1:00.
Miscellaneous Personal News: I will be having surgery tomorrow. I will therefore not be blog posting for a little while.
