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.
