There's The Clincher

With a 4-0 win against Robert Morris on Friday, Oct. 30, Quinnipiac clinched the third spot in the Northeast Conference tournament for the second consecutive season. Quinnipiac can finish no lower than third place as they hold the tie-breaker against Monmouth. The winner of the Monmouth (3-4) and Siena (2-5) game will grab the fourth and final spot in the NEC Tournament. Bryant (4-4) is a qualifying member of the NEC as they have just recently reclassified to Division I status and are not eligible for postseason play.

Two With Two

When Kimberly Cunniff and Christine Grady each scored twice in a 4-0 win against Robert Morris on Friday, Oct. 31, it marked the first time since 10/19/08 that the Bobcats had two players score twice in a game. In that game, a 5-0 win against Siena, Kaitlyn Notarianni and Lauren Hartnett both scored twice.

Good Defensive Effort

In the Bobcats win over Robert Morris, it marked the first time this season Quinnipiac held a team without a shot.
