Fairfield, CT - The Pioneer men's soccer team will open the home portion of their schedule this weekend, welcoming Maine to Campus Field for a Saturday afternoon matinee starting at 12 noon. Sacred Heart recorded their first point of the season, a 1-1 draw with Iona on Wednesday August 30th. Freshman Jesper Fredriksson scored the only goal for SHU. Junior Ricarti Mendes had an assist on the goal, his first point of the season.
Last season in Orono ME, Jason Tessitore scored with less than seven minutes to go in regulation to lift SHU to a 1-0 victory over Maine. The win snapped a three game Pioneer losing streak and was their second victory of the season.
