Shipping up to Boston: Last time the men’s soccer squad took a trip to Boston, the result was a 3-0 loss to Boston College. But on Tuesday night, the Stags made the drive down I-84 much more sweet with a 1-0 overtime victory over Northeastern.

Freshman Nuno Rodrigues scored his first career goal off a pass from Senior Christian Uy in the game’s second overtime period. Freshman goalkeeper Michael O’Keeffe made six saves in the victory. Fairfield improved its record to 2-4.

On Saturday night the Stags dropped a game to another Boston school, Harvard, at home, losing 4-1. Sophomore Jack Burridge scored his team-high third goal in the game.
The Stags travel to St. Francis (NY) on Saturday Sept. 26.

Cup Crazy: The men’s lacrosse team is preparing for the first ever Connecticut Cup fall ball event on Oct. 10. All five Division One schools in the Nutmeg State – Fairfield, Sacred Heart, Hartford, Quinnipiac and Yale – will take part. Second-year head coach Andy Copelan will deal with the loss of 10 players, but has a core of returning players with one year under their belts.

“The Connecticut Cup will be a great event for lacrosse in the state and we are thrilled to be a part of it,” Copelan said. “It will be a good test of our team’s growth, maturation and chemistry. The day will undoubtedly reveal a lot about ourselves and we are excited about the challenge.”

The Stags will face a supercharged ECAC schedule this season with the addition of Air Force, Denver, Ohio State, Quinnipiac and Bellarmine to the conference.
