The event was a favorite of Sieben's, and had an excellent turnout this year. On this occasion the older generation showed the younger players how it’s done, walking away with a 15-6 victory.  In addition to their alumni game, the team-along with Men’s Club Lacrosse- participated in Hofstra’s Annual Shake-a-Rake community service program on Saturday, November 14th.

Hofstra Club Ice Hockey took to the rink in Great Neck, New York, on Saturday. November 14th, to take on the U.S. Merchant Marine Academy. With 14:20 left on the clock in the first period, Hofstra’s Jamie Esperto put Hofstra on the board with an unassisted goal to take a 1-0 lead. Kings Point answered with two goals to take the lead 2-1, but Hofstra's Eli Vaillancourt answered right away to tie the score at 2-2. Darren Schwartz and Brandon Fauci would add goals for the Pride, but it wasn't enough, as the Mariners pulled away to win 7-4. Alex Feinstein had 46 saves in goal for the Pride.
