It’s November 6, 2019. Here’s what’s been going on lately in Southern New Hampshire University sports.
Junior Hélène Servais (Brussels, Belgium) was the difference maker in the Northeast-10 Quaterfinals on Tuesday as the Penmen defeated Bentley in overtime, 2-1.
That marked her 13th goal of the season, with sophomore Cameron Whelan (Seabrook, N.H.) scoring SNHU’s other goal earlier in the game to remove Bentley’s early lead.
The Penmen outshot Bentley 27-4, with 17 of their shots going on goal compared to just one for Bentley.
This marks the first ever postseason victory for SNHU’s field hockey program. Next up is Saint Thomas Aquinas on Friday, Nov. 8 (6 p.m.) at Larkin Field.
The Penmen ended their regular season shutout in Springfield, Mass., with American International College taking a 3-0 victory.
Sophomore goalkeeper Hannah Rose (Waterloo, Ontario) had nine saves in the losing effort.
Now the Northeast-10 Conference Championships begin, with Bentley coming up first on Sunday, Nov. 10 (1 p.m.)
Freshman Sinisa Sprecakovic (Mannheim, Germany) was selected as Northeast-10 Rookie of the Week on Monday afternoon.
Sprecakovic had three goals and two assists last week, scoring a hat trick against Saint Anselm College.
The men’s soccer team finish their regular season today at 1:30 p.m. against Stonehill.
