Lauren Hall wonder-goal not enough as Pirates fall 2-1 to Xavier

Seton Hall midfielder Lauren Hall’s second goal of the season could not stop the Pirates from falling to the Xavier Musketeers, 2-1, on the road in Cincinnati, Ohio. 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...

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...

SHU way behind Georgetown, Marquette, Butler, in Big East

The Seton Hall women’s soccer team is eight games into its 2017 campaign, yet it is still looking for its first victory. The problem has been clear for the Hall so far – it cannot seem to find the back of the net. But if this problem is already occurring in non-conference matches, the Pirates are in for a rude awakening once Big East play begins on Sept. 23, when they head to Chicago to play the DePaul Blue Demons. It is a rebuilding...

Women’s soccer adjusting into Big East play

Seton Hall women’s soccer team has struggled early this season, going 0-4-2 in out-of-conference play. The root of the team’s problem is as simple as the purpose of the game: score. With only three goals on 49 shots, the Pirates are shooting a six percent success rate, while their opponent are just over 18 percent. The opportunities have been there in many games. In the team’s latest 1-0 loss to Marist at Owen T. Carroll Field, the...

Women’s soccer unable to convert chances at home, lose to Marist

Seton Hall had a season high 19 shots against Marist on Thursday, but were unable to find the back of the net as the visiting Red Foxes took the 1-0 win.

Seton Hall falls by narrow margin on late-game score

]The Seton Hall women’s soccer team fell to Monmouth University 1-0 on Labor Day, by way of a 54th-minute goal from the Hawks. For much of the game, both teams were playing offense and defense with no team getting a real sense of control over the game. To the blind eye, the victor of this game would probably be Seton Hall, seeing that it led in most statistical categories. Nine different Seton Hall players registered a shot compared...
