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...

Men’s soccer remains focused after 0-3 week

From the moment Seton Hall men’s soccer coach Gerson Echeverry stepped foot on Seton Hall’s campus as an 18-year-old, his goal has been to win the Big East regular season, postseason and compete in the NCAA Tournament.

It is a rebuilding...
