Men’s Soccer

Graduate student João Brum (Ribera Grande, Portugal) took a brace in the Penmen’s home opener against Post, but neither he, nor his teammates could find a winner as SNHU ended the night with a 2-2 double overtime draw.

Brum equalized in the 37th minute to answer Post’s Alvaro Sanchez (Madrid, Spain), but Sanchez needed just eight minutes to answer Brum’s go-ahead goal in the 60th minute.

Freshman Sinisa Sprecakovic (Mannheim, Germany) picked up an assist for the second straight contest.

Southern New Hampshire is unbeaten through two matches for the sixth straight season. They’ll seek to keep that streak going on Saturday at 6 p.m. against the University of Bridgeport.

Field Hockey

Echoing their domination of Converse over the weekend, SNHU took an easy 8-1 win over Saint Michael’s on Wednesday.

Freshman Lisa Hagel (Driehuis, The Netherlands) had a hat trick, with additional goals from Laura van der Doorn (Beverwijk, The Netherlands), Taylor Marchman (Derry, N.H.), Meaghan Wile (Littleton, Mass.) and two from Hélène Servais (Brussels, Belgium).

Sophomore Emily Campbell (Raynham, Mass.) had three assists.

SNHU now stands at 2-1 ad they welcome Mercy College on Friday at 4 p.m.

Men’s Tennis

The Penmen won all seven singles and doubles matches in their matchup against Colby Sawyer on Wednesday.

They now head to Flushing, N.Y. for the four-day ITA East Regional Championships.
