Jasper Talks: Jasper Games of the Week

By Isaiah Rosario, Sports Editor

Women’s Volleyball: 

The rough stretch of women’s volleyball could end against Fairfield. The Lady Jaspers lost their last four games, only winning one set in those four games. 

There is not much to say about this game as the Jaspers lost all three sets. The first set would be the worst for the Jaspers as they lost the first set by 15 points, with hopes to change it around in the second set. 

The second set would be the Jaspers’s best set of the match as they would only lose the second set by four points. In the final set, the Jaspers lost the lead early and were unable to get the lead for the rest of the set. 

Mikalah Curran lead the Jaspers with 11 kills and Sarah Emmons leading the Jaspers in assists with 19. 

The tough stretch of Jaspers volleyball continues, with their next match being against Stonehill College on Oct. 4, at home at 7:00 p.m. 

Men’s Soccer: 

While 2-0 in MAAC play, the Jaspers look to continue their stretch of great play against a struggling Marist team. 

The scoring began in the 35th minute as Gunnar Studenhofft gave the Jaspers a 1-0 lead closing the first half. 

The scoring for Studenhofft did not stop there as there were only nine seconds separating the second and third goals for Studenhofft in the 56th minute. Although the Red Foxes scored two goals in the second half, it was not enough to stop the offensive explosion from Studenhofft. 

It was not just a big game for Studenhofft, but also for freshman Lucas Jones as he earned his first career start in goal for the Jaspers. 

Head coach Jorden Scott spoke to GoJaspers after the game to discuss the team’s performance. 

“These guys have shown tremendous resilience all season, and when called upon, every single player has stepped up to give his all,” Scott said. “Tonight was an intense game and we showed that we have a desire to represent our Jasper Family with all we have. Now we have a week to prepare for another tough opponent at home in front of our home crowd and we will be ready.”

The Jaspers are now 3-0 in MAAC play, with hopes of continuing that play at home against Rider on Oct. 7, at 2:00 p.m.
