McKenzie caps off senior year with BIG EAST honors

It was an electric Friday night match-up against Army West Point in New York that got the ball rolling for the Englishman’s collegiate soccer career at Seton Hall a year ago in August. “One memory that does stick out in my mind would be my first ever competitive game with Seton Hall,” senior forward Carlton McKenzie said. McKenzie recalls the Army fans’ section’s usual rowdiness and the stands being closer to the players than he was...

Seton Hall loses to Villanova, misses out on postseason

The Seton Hall men’s soccer team lost a heartbreaker tonight 1-0 to the visiting Villanova Wildcats, conceding a set piece goal in the 54th minute to Villanova’s Shane Bradley. The loss spoils what could have been a doubly special senior night. Not only was tonight the last game at Owen T.

Consistency will make make or break men’s soccer season

The Seton Hall men’s soccer team has been riding a roller coaster since the beginning of the sea- son.

Head coach Andreas Lindberg’s side displayed tenacity in defense, giving up only five goals combined to then No. 18 Florida Gulf...

Eden O’Leary opens on challenges international student-athletes face

For international students, the prospect of leaving home to study in the United States is one that kindles both feelings of excitement and anxiety. The opportunity to receive a well-rounded college education plants the ideas of what these young adults’ futures could be, but the potential language barrier and separation from the familiar sites and faces of home make it one to grab with skepticism.

Men’s soccer thriving at home under Lindberg’s leadership

Owen T. Carroll Field has been friendly to the Seton Hall men’s soccer team since Andreas Lindberg took over in 2018. Under Lindberg’s leadership, the Pirates have consistently defended their home pitch – something that was lacking before Lindberg arrived from LIU Post. From 2016-17 under coach Gerson Echeverry, Seton Hall went 7-7-3 playing in South Orange. With Lindberg calling the shots, that record has flipped in the Pirates’...
