Women’s soccer team goes 1-1-2, including a shutout vs. Siena


Manhattan College men’s soccer tied Siena in a scoreless match on the road earlier this month. This was the first scoreless match in all of MAAC play this season.

The Jaspers had four shots on target, placed by MAAC defensive player of the week Nassim Akki, Dorian Bounab and Anthony Denis.

Siena had nine shots with only three on target. Jasper keeper Danny DiMarco has not given up a goal in three appearances.

The team won on Oct. 5 against Fairfield, 1-0, on a goal by Gunnar Studenhofft.

“We showed a different side to us tonight, one that was resilient and determined to preserve a lead,” head coach Jorden Scott told Go Jaspers after the win. “Every game in the MAAC is a battle and more often than not, it’s a one-goal game and we showed the quality needed at the right time against a top opponent.”

Men’s soccer suffered a 2-0 loss to Iona, their first MAAC loss of the season. Manhattan first scored on a penalty kick in the 12th minute by Henry Hamilton. Iona’s Nathaniel David tied the game in the 34th minute, making Jasper Danny DiMarco give up his first goal in four games and was charged with his first loss. Iona secured the win in the 61st minute on a goal by Federico Russo.

Manhattan led the match in shots, beating Iona 12-9, including 6-4 in shots on goal.

Women’s soccer

Women’s soccer also tied Siena in a scoreless match on Oct. 1. Combined, the teams had 19 shots on goal, with 9 on target, but none in the back of the net. Jasper Keeper Kim Mains stopped two shots this game, her third shutout this season.

On the road, the Jaspers fell, 4-1, to Fairfield on Oct. 6. Junior Ianah Mackey scored in the 33rd minute for the Jaspers, putting the game back on equal terms. She was assisted by Maddie Feller, her first assist of the season.

Fairfield regained their lead in the first half with a goal by Maddy Theriault. The third and fourth were scored later in the second half by Meghan Carragher and Caroline Kelly, respectively.

It was the most goals surrendered by the Jaspers this season. Mains stopped an additional four shots on goals.

Manhattan women’s soccer defeated Iona, 1-0, in the 40th minute Oct. 8. Senior Caitlin Alcoba scored off an assist from Julia Nicholas to win the match 1-0. It was Alcoba’s first goal of the year. The win put the Jaspers’ MAAC record at 1-3-1 and Iona’s at 2-3.

They then tied Mount St. Mary’s Emmitsburg in a 1-1 battle on Oct. 12. This is already the Jaspers third tie this season, more than last season due to rule change not allowing overtime play. Last season, the Jaspers had one tie for their entire run.


The Manhattan College golf team competed at the Autumnal Invitational this past weekend in Lake Placid, where they placed last of the 10 teams competing.

The Jaspers had a third-round score of 296 (plus-12) and an overall tournament score of 895 (plus-43),  finishing one-stroke behind 9th place Holy Cross of Worcester, Massachusetts.

David Mlynek and Lincoln Haymaker continue to be leading scorers for the Jaspers. Mlynek shot 7 points over par with a final of 220, and Haymaker followed shortly behind, shooting 223 (plus-10).

Women’s volleyball

Volleyball had another three over the last two weeks, falling to Niagara, Canisius, and St. Francis Brooklyn. Niagara took over Draddy Gymnasium, defeating the Jaspers in all three sets (25-10, 25-20, 25-19) on Saturday, Oct. 1.

The Jaspers dropped another three sets to Canisius on Oct. 2 (25-13, 25-18, 25-18). Julia Menocal and Camlla Gomez both had 8 kills for the Jaspers, and defensive leader Teresa Garza registered 12 digs.

Gomez continued her kill-streak at the Wednesday match against St. Francis Brooklyn. Though the Jaspers fell 0-3 to St. Francis, Gomez had a season-high 16 kills.

The Jaspers were able to secure short leads over the Terriers.

A kill from Gomez put the Jaspers ahead 10-9 before the Terriers scored 7 points to get the 16-10 advantage. This put an end to the Jaspers’ leads, as they eventually fell 25-16, 24-11, and 25-16.

Volleyball fell to Quinnipiac and Rider the following week, losing 0-3. This puts their record at 1-19.


Andria and Nicola Scaglione both finished in the top five for the Jaspers at the Met Championship at Van Cortlandt Park on Friday.

Andria earned the individual title, finishing first with a 18:52:07 time, almost 30 seconds faster than the second place finisher.

Nicola finished fifth with a time of 20:00:05.

The men’s cross-country team took second place at the Met Championship, falling to Fordham.

Michael Hennelly finished third with a time of 26:54. Justin Jordaens came in ninth for the Jaspers, finishing at 28:16.

Swimming and diving

Both men’s and women’s swimming and diving took a loss to Fordham this week. The women score 65 points in comparison to Fordham’s 182, and the men scored 64-177.

Though the size of Manhattan’s team in comparison to competitors makes it difficult for them to score the maximum amount of points in each race, the Jaspers are continuously breaking school records and improving individual marks.

As reported by the Quadrangle, the swim team has a new practice facility at the Horace Mann school, a quick walk from Manhattan’s campus.

The partnership will be the first time Horace Mann will be allowing another institution to use their pool.
