Club Sports Roundup

Club Baseball took on Long Island rival Stony Brook University in a doubleheader on Saturday, September 22nd at Wantagh Park. The teams would split the doubleheader, with Hofstra claiming a 7-2 victory in game one behind the strong pitching of Steve Locorriere. Despite dropping game two to the Seawolves by a score of 8-1, pitcher Brandon Santos’ performance was a highlight for the Pride, as he struck out 7 of the 8 batters he faced.

Club Ice Hockey traveled to Wayne, New Jersey to take on Ramapo College on Sunday, September 23rd. Despite goals from Vinny Cacciatore and Joe Grice, it would not be Hofstra’s night, as the Roadrunners cruised to a 10-2 victory. The Pride will now turn their focus on their home opener on Friday, October 5th at 9:45pm at the Northwell Health Ice Center at Eisenhower Park.

Club Women’s Ultimate Frisbee began the season in Elmer, New Jersey as a part of the Jersey Devil Tournament on Saturday, September 22nd and Sunday, September 23rd, posting a 1-5 record over the course of the weekend. In the team’s 9-3 victory over Rowan University, Haley McPartland fueled the Pride with 4 goals, Jess Siskind had 3, and Lauren Small and Kathleen Brussell each added a goal.

Club Men’s Ultimate Frisbee also participated in the Jersey Devil tournament, compiling a 2-4 record over the weekend. Tyler McCarthy stood out for Hofstra, as he posted a Callahan in the team’s loss to Rowan University. A Callahan is when a defensive player intercepts the disc in the opponent's end zone for a point. It is a rare occurrence, because it requires a defender to intercept, rather than simply block, a pass in the offense's own end zone.

In the second half, Hofstra began to sputter, allowing TCNJ cut the deficit to 28-26. Ray Brown would add two more tries to extend Hofstra’s lead to 38-26, but ultimately Hofstra could not close out the game and lost on the final play of the game by a score of 40-38.
