End of Season Brings Optimism for Tigers

When Stephan Barea’s shot rolled across the muddy goal line on Oct. 28, Towson’s playoff hopes went with it.  The Hofstra freshman midfielder scored the lone goal on soaked field at the Towson Center Soccer Complex, in a match that ended the Tigers’ slim playoff chances.

After a win at home versus Georgia State University, the season came to an end with a 5-2 loss at James Madison University.

It was a poor ending to an underachieving season.  Shortly after the season, the Tigers were given some good news following a disappointing season.

Sophomore forward Liam Maloney was named as a first team selection on the All-Colonial Athletic Association men’s soccer team.

As well, junior midfielder Marco Mangione was named to the second team and junior defender Scott Horta was a third team selection.

All three players will return to a team that will graduate only four seniors.  It is a promising sign for Tiger fans anticipating next season’s arrival.

Coach Frank Olszewski has young team that will look to challenge for a playoff spot next season as the underclassman mature and the trio of Maloney, Mangione and Horta return to lead the team.
