Seton Hall men’s soccer has been doing pretty well recently coming off their amazing 2OT win over Delaware. But their first loss of the season had to come soon and it did.
The team headed down to Fairfax, Va., to play George Mason this past Friday and suffered its first loss of the season, losing 1-0. Coming into the game, both Seton Hall and George Mason had not suffered any losses to date. The game remained tied 0-0 until the 61st minute when George Mason scored, ultimately winning the game.
The Pirates had a chance to score late in the game when Christian Battistesa recorded the first shot on the net for the team, but George Mason’s goalkeeper Steffen Kraus was there to make the save.
This game was the first where Seton Hall was unable to score, as they usually average three goals per game.
The game against Princeton on Sunday had the same 1-0 outcome, but Seton Hall was not the winner. Again, the only goal in the game came after the half, at the 63rd minute by Princeton’s Bryan Windsor.
The Pirates are now 2-2-2. They return back home to South Orange on Saturday, September 21st to play Bucknell University.
