Navy women's soccer adjusts schedule due to impending storm

NAVY WOMEN’S SOCCER: Due to the threat of impending weather in the Mid-Atlantic region Saturday's women's soccer game between Navy and Holy Cross in Annapolis has been moved up to Thursday afternoon at 1 p.m. The Mids (2-3-3) and Crusaders (2-5) will now kick off their respective 2018 Patriot League campaigns in matinee action at the Glenn Warner Soccer Facility.

NAVY MEN’ SOCCER: The Navy men’s soccer team suffered a 2-0 loss to Saint Joseph’s on Tuesday night at Sweeny Field, which was the second-straight 2-0 setback for the Midshipmen (1-5-1).

Navy’s offense came alive in the second half with 12 shots, but the Hawks (4-2-0) scored early each of the two halves to grab the win at home.

“We played well in possession and generated a lot of chances,” head coach Tim O’Donohue said. “We got countered twice and we need to correct a few defensive situations. We will be ready for Patriot League play.”

Tuesday marked the first time St. Joseph’s beat Navy in the 10 all-time meetings between the two programs.

Navy’s match at Campbell on Saturday has been canceled due to Hurricane Florence’s forecasted landfall in the Carolinas later his week. The Midshipmen are now off until Sept. 23 when they take on Holy Cross on the road to start Patriot League action.

MCDANIEL FIELD HOCKEY: Paige Ford (South River) made eight saves, and Madison Downey (Old Mill) made her first career defensive save for the Green Terror in a 2-0 loss to Bridgewater on Tuesday.
