The Hawks didn’t qualify for the Northeast-10 Men’s Soccer Tournament, but they ended their season on a high niote with a 3-2 victory over Assumption College on Wednesday.

Sophomore Michael Budrewicz (Uccle, Belgium) cut Assumption’s lead in half in the 43rd minute, grabbing the winning goal with just moments left in the contest.

Sophomore Jordan Trombly (Manchester, N.H.) had the Hawks’ other goal.

Both teams had 17 total shots and 9 shots on goal.

The Hawks finish the year 7-9-0, and 3-9-0 in Northeast-10 play.

Field Hockey

The Northeast-10 Conference released its All-Conference Team listing on Wednesday and the Hawks were well represented.

Senior Anna Drakeley (Woodbury, Conn.) was named the league’s Defensive Player of the Year, junior Julia Hand (Reading, Mass.) was named as Northeast-10 Goalkeeper of the Year and Head Coach Carolyn King-Robitaille was named Northeast-10 Coach of the Year.

This marks the third time King-Robitaille has earned the award.

Drakely, Hand and senior Hannah Friend (North Easton, Mass.) were named to the Northeast-10 All-Conference First Team. Senior Kaeleigh Lord (Keene, N.H.) and sophomore Carly LaCasse (Sagamore Beach, Mass.) made it to the Northeast-10 All-Conference Second Team, and freshman Maeve Murphy (Scituate, Mass.) earned a spot on the All-Rookie Team.

As of today, the Hawks lead all of NCAA Division II in team goals-against average (0.21), save percentage (0.875) and shutouts per game (0.89). The team’s winning percentage (0.895) and scoring margin (3.11) are second nationally and the Hawks number of assists per game (2.05) and scoring average (3.32) rank third in the country.

The Hawks will battle Assumption this Friday, Nov. 8 at 4 p.m. in an NE10 Semifinals game to be played at Grappone Stadium. The winner of that contest will punch a ticket to the league’s championship game to be played on Sunday, Nov. 10 at 1 p.m.

Men’s Basketball

The experts are expecting a good season in conference play, and now they will start the season 12th in NCAA Division II.

That ranking comes from the D2SIDA Men’s Basketball National Media Poll, which was released on Tuesday.

Northwest Missouri State starts at first in the poll.
