As is the case for most up-and-coming college soccer coaches, Simmons is well-traveled and has made connections with various coaches and players from all over the country. However, his work outside of the college soccer realm also speaks volumes for the...

Offseason is scouting season for Lindberg and men’s soccer coaching staff

A college coach’s job is never over even if their respective sport is in the offseason. “It was a few nights in Athens with just my wife only for vacation,” coach Andreas Lindberg said recalling his holiday season festivities. Strictly vacation trips are hard to come by for coach Lindberg and his staff as they are always on the road scouting players and attending conferences. He had only just gotten back to campus a few days ago after...

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. Carroll field for the program’s eight seniors, but it had a chance to be memorable due to the fact that the Pirates could have clinched a Big East...

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. The Pirates opened their season in August with a 6-0 win over Central Connecticut State, then failed to score from open play in four consecutive games as their creative struggles led to tight defeats. 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. International student-athletes not...

The road woes for Seton Hall’s men’s soccer team continued tonight as the Pirates fell to Xavier 2-1.

Owen T. Carroll Field becoming a fortress for men’s soccer

After an emphatic 3-1 victory over Fordham on Tuesday night, Seton Hall is one of the only four Big East teams with an undefeated home record this season. Since the conclusion of this summer’s renovations to Owen T. Carroll Field, the Pirates have produced impressive wins over Big East rivals DePaul and Creighton. Despite playing the match at the Red Bull Training Facility, Seton Hall’s 6-0 win over Central Connecticut State was the...

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’...

Pirates snatch crucial three points in home opener

The Seton Hall men’s soccer team defeated DePaul 2-1 on Saturday night in a nail biter decided by Stephen Elias’ 85th minute goal. Elias, the leading goal scorer and captain for the Pirates, notched his fourth of the season when he was the first to react to the second bounce off a corner kick. “Those second balls are the most dangerous balls in soccer,” Elias said. “That’s when the team shut off right there and then. The ball back in...
