After falling to Monmouth in the MAAC Championship last fall, Fairfield’s women’s soccer team is looking to put the past behind them, move forward and become the top team in the MAAC league for the...
In the 2013 Fairfield men’s soccer season, the team put together an 8-5-3 overall record while going 5-3-2 in the MAAC Conference. Six Fairfield student-athletes were recognized for the academic achievement as members of the MAAC All-Academic team: Jordan Ayris ‘15, Matt Danaher ‘14, Sean Fahy ‘14, George Newton ‘16 , John Sullivan ‘15, and Matt Turner ‘16.
After a long and successful season, Fairfield’s women’s soccer will finally be taking a break from the field. Before the season had even started, the Stags had established their overall goals. The team wasn’t looking for a perfect record, but for a season that showed they had deserved everything that had come to them.
In these past few weeks, Fairfield men’s and women’s soccer coaches, Carl Rees and Jim O’Brien, respectively, have made great accomplishments. Carl Rees notched his 100th MAAC win as a coach and Jim O’Brien finished the season as the first ever coach of an undefeated Fairfield women’s soccer team at home.
Last Saturday, the Stags women’s soccer team beat the Niagara Purple Eagles with a score of 4-0 on Senior Day. Ironically enough, all four of the goals were scored by freshmen. The four seniors, Sarah Frassetto, Jac Ley, Carly Beyar and Shannon Fay, and one graduate student, Nikki Stanton '13, played in their last ever home game at Lessing Field and helped their team clinch a winning season as well as an undefeated season at home. This is the first time such a feat has happened for the women’s soccer team.
