Stags Open Fall Sports Action

Stags Open Fall Sports Action

Women's Soccer defeated Colgate, 1-0, on Lessing Field

Games on Tap for Four Teams This Weekend

With a 1-0 overtime win last Thursday on Lessing Field, Fairfield women’s soccer kicked off the 2019-20 athletics calendar in thrilling fashion. Stephanie Tsangaris ’22 netted the game-winner that sent the Stags past Colgate, with Aytana Muschajew ’22 and Gena Pike ’23 splitting the shutout in goal.

The women’s soccer team, which has also since challenged UConn in the early stages of the 2019 campaign, is one of four Fairfield squads that will be in the action for the full weekend of the fall season. The Stags head to Wagner on Friday and Yale on Sunday, and will next take the pitch at Lessing Field on Sunday, Sept. 8 for a visit from LIU.

Fairfield men’s soccer – the back-to-back MAAC regular season champions – will open their 2019 slate on Friday at reigning Atlantic 10 Champion Rhode Island.  After a midweek visit to Saint Joseph’s, the Stags host their first action on Lessing Field on Saturday, Sept. 7 against Stony Brook. Fairfield has been tabbed as the preseason favorite in the MAAC Preseason Coaches’ Poll.

A pair of road games also await Fairfield field hockey with trips to UMass Lowell and Boston College to begin their season. The Stags’ home slate kicks off the following weekend against Vermont and Saint Francis (Pa.), Sept. 6 – 8. Fairfield was ranked atop the NEC Preseason Coaches’ Poll in the newly-reformed conference after making four straight trips to the MAAC Championship Game, including a pair of conference crowns.

Rounding out the weekend ledger is Fairfield volleyball, which heads to Baltimore for three matches at the UMBC Invitational. The Stags then head west to Malibu to challenge Pepperdine, Cal Baptist, and Texas A&M before opening the Alumni Hall portion of the slate on Sept. 13 and 14 with visits from Northeastern and NJIT.

The schedule will be in the full swing in the coming weeks with cross country, golf, swimming and diving, and tennis all set to begin action later in September. Visit FairfieldStags.com for complete schedules and other information on all 20 of the Stags’ varsity athletic programs.
