U.S. Soccer’s problem is focused at the youth level

“It can never happen” turned into “it was never supposed to happen” on Oct. 10, when the United States men’s national team failed to qualify for the 2018 World Cup. Since then, many think articles have been written about how and why the United States failed to qualify; a feat that, at this stage in the development of United States soccer, and in this region of qualifying, should always be reached. Although, that question fails to...

Xavier was the more offensive side from the onset, holding possession for most of the match while maintaining a constant presence in the Pirates’ defensive half. The first game-changing moment occurred in the middle of the first half, when Seton Hall starting goalkeeper...

Pangonis making a difference for men’s soccer

With 83 minutes gone in an Oct. 7 match at Owen T. Carroll Field, Seton Hall and DePaul remained knotted at 1-1. The game seemed destined for overtime. That all changed, however, when a header found the foot of Lukas Pangonis, who knocked home the game-winner from point-blank range to give the Pirates a thrilling 2-1 win. This was uncharted territory for Pangonis, a defenseman and one that was 4,973 minutes in the making. The...

Women’s soccer using ‘31 as one’ to stick together amidst adversity

When a team is without a win after 14 regular-season games, what holds the locker room together? For the Seton Hall women’s soccer team, that answer has been a simple phrase: 31 as one. The message, which signifies all 31 players on the roster being unified as one collective whole, came to Pirates coach Rick Stainton during one of the team’s many preseason meetings in August. The coach figured the phrase had left some mark on his...

Dramis’ big saves not enough as Seton Hall falls 1-0 to St. John’s

A valiant effort by the Seton Hall back five was not enough, as the Pirates came up short, 1-0, on the road against St. John’s. The offense was simply not there for the Pirates as they only took five shots during the entire game, with only being on goal. The Red Storm, on the other hand, put the Pirates defense under constant duress, taking 18 shots, with eight of them on goal. That pressure by St. John’s made for a busy day for...

Pirates offense creates but fails to convert in 1-0 loss

In a game that was truly a defensive chess match, the Seton Hall women’s soccer team was unable to find the back of the net, losing a tough one at home to Villanova on Thursday night, 1-0. The Pirates were hungry for a victory after their most recent Big East contest, on the road against Georgetown, ended in a lopsided 5-0 defeat. Opportunities were hard to come by, but no opportunity was greater than when Villanova received a free...
