Soccer Wins Leads to Honors for Ben Wignall

Catch the Stags in action on campus this Saturday, Sept. 16

After tallying a goal and an assist in both of the wins for Fairfield Men’s Soccer this past week, senior Ben Wignall has been recognized with a pair of honors. The forward from Harlepool, England was voted as the Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference (MAAC) Offensive Player of the Week and has been ranked as the ninth-best collegiate player in New England by New England Soccer Journal .

Fairfield’s leading scorer in both the 2014 and 2016 seasons, Wignall is off to a fast start to the 2017 campaign. Last Monday, he converted a penalty kick and assisted on Don-Junior Bobe’s game-winner in the Stags’ 2-1 victory over Lafayette on Lessing Field. Wignall followed the same script over the weekend, netting Fairfield’s first goal and then assisting on the difference-maker – this time finished off by Jonas Vergin – in a 2-1 triumph over Robert Morris.

The Stags (3-3) are back on campus this Saturday,, Sept. 16 at 7 p.m. to play their final non-conference match of the season against visiting Temple. Tickets for the meeting with the Owls are on sale at FairfieldStags.com/TIX .

Admission is free for students, faculty and staff for all Fairfield regular season home games. This Saturday, the first 200 students in attendance will receive a custom Fairfield Soccer scarf. In addition, the match will be a ‘Connect’ event for all First Year Experience (FYE) students.
