Freddy Hall Ranks In Top 10 Nationally In Save PercentageHAMDEN, Conn. - Senior goalkeeper Freddy Hall (St. George, Bermuda) of the Quinnipiac University men's soccer team ranks eighth nationally in save percentage with a .944 mark through Sept. 13. The Bobcats' goalkeeper has three straight shutouts since beginning the season with a 1-1 tie at Yale. In the three games since allowing his only goal of the season, Hall shut out No. 18 Loyola in a scoreless tie before earning two victories with clean sheets at NJIT on Sept. 12 and Army on Sept. 16.
"Freddy (Hall) is undoubtedly one of the top goalkeepers in the nation," said head coach Eric Da Costa. "His stats not only confirm that but are also a major part of our early success. He is getting closer and closer to his top form but I expect the best is yet to come from him."
Hall also ranks 14th in the nation in goals-against average with a mark of 0.29 through Sept. 13. That figure dropped after posting his third straight shutout of the season and pushing his shutout streak to 355:59 of action. He now boasts a goals-against average of 0.22, while his save percentage is .963 through four games.
The Bobcats also ranked in the top 20 in three team statistical categories. Through its first three games of the season, Quinnipiac ranks fifth in the nation with a .944 save percentage. The Bobcats also posted the 13th-best team save percentage in the nation at 0.29, while also ranking 19th with a 0.667 shutout percentage.
Hall led the nation in save percentage and saves per game as a sophomore in 2007. In his first season with the Bobcats, he posted a .915 save percentage in 16 games, while also boasting the nation's top saves per game figure at 7.38.
Quinnipiac returns to action on Saturday, Sept. 19 as it takes on Iona at the Quinnipiac Soccer Field. The game between the Bobcats and Gaels is set to kick off at 4 p.m.
