The Hofstra volleyball team continued to struggle in their lost to St. John’s University on Wednesday. The Pride lost to their local rival in what was the Queens-Nassau cup after being up the first set and quickly dropping the next three. Despite the rocky start, the team remains optimistic. “I think we just need to learn to fight a bit longer,” said head coach Kristina Hernandez, “I think that will be the final piece of the puzzle.”
This past weekend saw the Women’s Soccer Team maintain their .500 record, earning a split in their two weekend match-ups.
In spite of a day-long rain storm that continued into Friday night, the Pride had a spectacular match against the then-25th-ranked Indiana Hoosiers at the Hofstra Soccer Stadium. Hofstra took a 2-1 lead, powered by forward Salma Tarik’s second goal of the young season and forward Kayla Pifer’s first. The Pride dominated the first half of the game against the Big Ten power, and was able to hold their lead for almost 89 minutes thanks to terrific goalkeeping from junior Krysten Farriella.
Led by senior Quarterback Corey Christopher’s career high 321 yards and three touchdown passes, the Hofstra Pride (2-0) defeated the Bryant University Bulldogs 40-24 on Saturday afternoon. However, they are aware that there is always room for improvement.
While Kylee Maneja and Ashley Asing were battling on the court, there families were battling it out in a living room back home in Kapolei, HI. And while sides wore their respective colors and rooted for their respective teams, at the end of the match there were sure to be plenty of hugs and good feelings.
