Men’s Soccer: Tomorrow, the Huskies will play their final non-conference game of the season, as they host the Manhahttan Jaspers at 7:30 PM. The Huskies are 10-0 and ranked #1 nationally. The Jaspers are 0-9. We should dominate this game against the team from the Bronx. And yes, Manhattan College is in the Bronx. And that probably is meaningless to anyone not from the greater New York Metropolitan Area. But the school is not actually in Manhattan. Following the showdown with the Jaspers, the Huskies will travel to South Bend to face #10 Notre Dame at noon on Saturday. The Irish are looking to bounce back from a heartbreaking double OT loss to St. John’s that will cause their ranking to drop. This game could decide the Blue Division title. The Huskies get both Georgetown and Marquette at home, and with a win on the road, would be in an excellent position to take the title. As for how to catch the games, you can watch the Manhattan contest on All-Access, though it is not on the WHUS schedule yet. The UND game will be on Irish All-Access and WHUS.
Women’s Volleyball: Jordan Kirk recorded her 1,000t kill, but the Huskies were swept by the Syracuse Orange, 3-0. The Huskies are now 8-9 overall and 0-4 in Big East play. Next up, the Huskies host in-state rival Hartford on Tuesday night at 7:00 PM, before traveling to Tampa to face the South Florida Bulls Friday at 7:00. The former is available on GameTracker, while the latter may have something available on USF’s website.
Field Hockey: Same old story. Marie Elena Bolles scores and lifts the Huskies to victory. This time, it was a 1-0 win over in-state rival Yale, improving the #4 ranked Huskies to 10-1 on the year. While we should have been able to beat the Bulldogs by more, a win is a win. I’m sure Nancy Stevens will take it, and so will I. Next up, we travel to Georgetown Friday at 3:00 PM. The Hoyas are 0-2 in Big East play and 2-9 overall. The weekend concludes by facing Virginia in a neutral site contest at Princeton at 11:00 AM on October 9th. This was expected to be a huge matchup, but the Cavaliers have really struggled this season.
Women’s Soccer: The team bounced back from the Notre Dame debacle, beating the DePaul Blue Demons 2-1 in Chicago. Danielle Schullman and Devin Prendergast both scored for the visiting Huskies, who are now 5-5-2 overall and 2-2-2 in Big East play. This gives them 8 points, 2 more than USF and Providence for the final tournament spot.
Men’s and Women’s Tennis: The men’s team is in Hartford today at 3:00 PM to face off against the Hawks. The women head to UMass Wednesday at 2:00 PM. Stay tuned for more coverage.
