Last Time Out
Quinnipiac was defeated, 2-1, on Saturday, Sept. 11 in Loyola, Md., against the University of Loyola (Md.) Greyhounds. In a tight battle, the Greyhounds scored a late second half goal in the 83rd minute of play to pull away for the victory. Quinnipiac's goal scored was its first this season.
Daniels Fitting In Nicely
Sophomore forward William Daniels (Bethany, Conn.) registered his first goal for Quinnipiac and his 11th career collegiate goal overall on Sept. 11 against Loyola (Md.). Daniels, a transfer student from Mount Ida College in Newton, Mass., was honored with the Great Northeast Conference Rookie of The Year while also taking home first team all-conference honors in 2009. His goal came in the 41st minute of play, as he drilled a shot from outside the box and past the diving keeper. Daniels has applied pressure up front all season, and will look to continue to do so throughout the year.
Senior defender Pierre Soubrier (Aurignac, France) was credited with his first assist of the season on Sept. 11 against Loyola (Md.). Even as a defender, Soubrier has the ability to become a scoring threat. In 2009, Soubrier led all defenders with eight points (four goals) and tied for second on the team in overall points.
