Sophomore Maddie Bove and the women’s soccer team are on a program-best five match shutout streak.

Football, field hockey, women’s soccer, volleyball and men’s golf all earned wins this past weekend as the fall sports are now in full swing.

The Tiger football squad earned a 35-20 home win over St. Francis (Pa.) on Saturday. A pair of rushing touchdowns from Darius Victor staked the Tigers to a 14-7 lead, an advantage they never relinquished.

Field hockey picked up its first win of 2015, a 4-2 decision over Lehigh, on the strength of second-half goals from Allie Stauffer and Taylor Kvilhaug. Their tallies were the first of their careers. The four team goals were the most in a game since the Tigers defeated #18 American 4-3, exactly a year ago Saturday.

The Towson men’s golf team captured the Rutger’s Invitational team title with a 14-under-par 838 (277-283-278) on Saturday. The Tigers finished 20 strokes better than the host Scarlett Knights. Ryan Siegler led the Tigers, finishing tied for second-place with a score of 208 (66-69-73), completing the tournament with a -5 scorecard.

After a pair of wins over Mount Saint Mary’s and Loyola (Md.), the women’s soccer team won the second-annual Battle of Baltimore on Sunday. The Tigers defeated the Mount 4-0 in the tournament opener on Friday before handing cross-town rival Loyola a 1-0 defeat on Sunday. Towson’s present shutout streak (+5) is the longest in program history.

Volleyball pushed its win streak to 10 in a row with three victories over Fairfield (3-1), Penn (3-1) and Binghamton (3-0). All three matches were part of the 2015 Crowne Plaza Philadelphia West Penn Invitational. The Tigers have won every match since the season opener, a tough 3-2 loss to Tennessee.
