At eight games into the season, we have a record of 3-5. Our victories include wins over VMI, Wagner, and Quinnipiac. We had five tough games against Lehigh, Bryant, Brown, Drexel, and most recently Penn State who was ranked 17th in the country, but in every game we have given a great effort, and showed improvement in all facets of the game. Every week we continue to get better, and we are looking forward to playing 3rd ranked UMASS this upcoming weekend.

Our most recent victory over Quinnipiac was a thriller.  After coming out of the gates slow, we found ourselves down by six. We kept calm, and we were able to cut the deficit to two by halftime. Coming into the second half, we knew we could win the game. Our defense played great, and we held Quinnipiac to one goal. Our offense stepped up, and they scored important goals at crucial times.  Gus Quinzani scored the game winning goal with three minutes left in the game.  We showed determination in this game, and it was truly a team effort. The come from behind victory is a game that all of us will remember for the rest of our lives, and it showed the character and heart of our team.

This past weekend we lost a hard fought game to Penn State; however, our defense played great and we continued to show signs of improvement. With a week to prepare for UMASS, we continue to work hard during practice, and compete everyday.  We are still running are 300 yard shuttles every Monday morning at 7am, to improve our fitness, and we continue to get stronger with lift sessions twice a week.  We are looking forward to the next part of our season, and continuing to get better and winning more games.
