Heads Held High

It was a busy day for the Hofstra Soccer Program this past Sunday. 


The men were playing in the CAA final vs William and Mary after an incredible win in the Semi’s on Friday.  Playing a man down, Hofstra scored 2 goals in the final five minutes (game winner on PK with 5 seconds left) to vault themselves into the finals.  HU played W & M to a 0-0 first half tie, but once the Tribe scored HU pushed forward allowing a few easy goals to end up with a 4-0 final.  Nevertheless, great applause to Coach Nuttall and the boys for never giving up, demonstrating great work ethic, and their effort would make Sergio proud.


The ladies played on Sunday after a routine win against perinniel power UConn.  A quick goal gave them a 1-0 lead that was never relinquished.  The game against BC in the round of 32 was much closer than the 5-0 opening day loss.  The ladies proved much tougher this time out going down to a 3-1 defeat.  The ladies finished 19-3 and we at the foundation are proud to share in their success as 3 scholarship winners (Tiffany Yovino, Brittany Butts, and Nikki Choeffel) played major roles in the success.


Coach Riddough and Coach Nuttall have been extremely supportive of the foundation and have always been willing to lend an extra hand when necessary.  Well done lads, Cheers on two great season
