Pike Earns MAAC Honors, Stags Surging in Conference Play

Cormac Pike '22

Fairfield sits atop the MAAC at 4-0-0

Cormac Pike ’22 has been recognized by the Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference (MAAC) as its Defensive Player of the Week following a strong effort on both sides of the pitch last week for Fairfield Men’s Soccer. Pike and the defending MAAC Champion Stags are currently leading the conference standings at 4-0-0.

Pike, who comes to Fairfield from Somerset, England, scored a pair of goals last Saturday in Fairfield’s 5-0 rout at Canisius. He was also a part of the back line that ceded just one goal in 180 minutes as the Stags topped both Canisius and Monmouth on the road during the week.

The Stags continued their winning ways this Wednesday on Lessing Field, knocking off Iona by a count of 2-1 for their fourth consecutive win. Approaching the midway point of the MAAC slate, Fairfield is one of two remaining unbeaten teams at 4-0-0, as a part of a 7-4-0 overall record.

Another pair of road outings are on the docket for the Stags beginning with a Saturday trip to Rider in a rematch of the 2017 MAAC Championship Match. Fairfield will then visit Siena before hosting in-state MAAC foe Quinnipiac on Saturday, Oct. 20 at 7 p.m.

Tickets for the upcoming clash with the Bobcats are on sale now at FairfieldStags.com/TIX. All Alumni & Family Weekend attendees will receive complimentary tickets in their registration packet. Please be sure to register to take advantage of this promotion; all tickets sold online and at the gate will be full price.

In addition, admission is always free for current Fairfield University students, faculty and staff (with a StagCard) to all regular season home contests.
