TOWSON, Md. - Seeking to extend its unbeaten streak to three matches, the Towson men's soccer team returns to action Wednesday night at Hofstra for a game beginning at 7 p.m.
The Tigers (4-5-1, 2-1-1 CAA) are now tied for second in the Colonial Athletic Association with James Madison and Northeastern. All three schools have seven points.
Towson is coming off of a 1-1 tie Saturday against William & Mary Saturday. Sophomore defender Daniel Grundei scored his first goal of the season with less than 15 minutes remaining in regulation to bring the Tigers back from a 1-0 deficit.
Juniors Olakunle Banjo and Enrico Skrypzak are tied for the team lead with three goals this season for Towson. Skrypzak scored his first career multi-goal game against Delaware on October 3 in a 3-2 Towson win over the defending CAA champion.
Tiger freshman goalkeeper Felix Petermann is also adjusting well to his first taste of CAA play, as the young netminder has saved 21 shots in his first four conference games. He earned his first career shutout in the Tigers 1-0 home victory over Georgia State when the team began conference play on September 22.
Hofstra (8-3-1, 2-2 CAA) enters Wednesday riding a two-game winning streak and has a 4-1 home record. Chris Griebsch leads the Pride with six assists, ranking first in the CAA.
