Scouting The Hartford University Hawks
Hartford welcomes Quinnipiac to West Hartford with a record of 0-2. Their first loss of the season came against Boston College in a 3-2 defeat on Sept. 1. The Hawks lost their home opener on Sept. 4 against Boston University in a 3-0 defeat. This season, Hartford will look towards its youth for an offensive lift, as the team lost its top two scorers in Carlos Villa and Ivan Guarin. Junior forward Patrick Boucher has one goal on the season as does freshman forward Steve Aiston. Transfer goalkeeper Matt McElroy has taken over in net this season, registering three saves through the first two games.

All-Time Against The Hawks

Tuesday's non-conference game will be the ninth time the two squads have faced each other. Quinnipiac is 4-2-2 all-time against Hartford. The last meeting between the two squads was on Sept. 9, 2006 in which the teams tied 1-1 in a double overtime contest.

Last Time Out
Quinnipiac opened the season with a 1-0 defeat on Saturday, Sept. 4 against Boston College. The contest was tight throughout, as a late second half penalty kick awarded to the Eagles proved to be the difference.

Cavallo and Daniels Impressive In Starting Rolls
Both William Cavallo (Londonderry, N.H.) and William Daniels (Bethany, Conn.) made the most out of their opportunities in the opening match. Daniels, a sophomore transfer student from Mount Ida College, provided the pressure up front, disrupting any comfort Boston College's defense may have enjoyed. Cavallo, a sophomore, worked well with Daniels all game, as his ball distribution from the right side of the field kept the Eagles on their heels.

Traveling In September
After facing Hartford, Quinnipiac travels to play Loyola (Md.) on Saturday, Sept. 11 at 7 p.m. and Providence the following Saturday, Sept. 18 at 2 p.m.
