Club Sports Roundup

Club Men's Lacrosse hosted the 2nd Annual Joe Ferriso Classic on Sunday, April 22nd at Shuart Stadium. In their first game of the day, the Pride took on #5 ranked Temple, losing on a last second goal by the score of 8-7. Hofstra would bounce back however, as they rallied from a 7-4 halftime deficit against Quinnipiac to win 8-7 in overtime on Mike Benvenuti’s second game-winning goal of the week. The event raised money for a scholarship in memory of former club member Joe Ferriso, who passed away in 2015.
