The St. Bonaventure men's soccer team continues its three-match homestand by hosting Davidson in Atlantic 10 play on Wednesday afternoon.

LAST TIME OUT
SBU fell to visiting La Salle, 3-0, on Saturday evening in the Atlantic 10 home opener at the Marra Athletics Fields Complex. After a nearly even opening 25 minutes, the Explorers (5-7-1, 1-2-0 Atlantic 10) finally broke through with a header goal from Andrew Connors. La Salle's leading scorer seized a cross from Mike Liska and found the net from close range for the 1-0 edge. That score would hold until the early portion of the second period when Liska created more offense for the Explorers. The sophomore crossed into the center of the box in the 49th minute where his pass found Ryan Nork who would slide a shot into the lower 90 for a 2-0 advantage. SBU created several strong chances in the final 20 minutes, led by a header from Kieran Toland off the crossbar, but could not break through.

A-10 PLAY UNDERWAY
St. Bonaventure continues its Atlantic 10 homestand Wednesday vs. Davidson. The Bonnies will wrap up the run of three straight home games Saturday night vs. UMass.

  • Davidson is also seeking its first road win of the year – the Wildcats are 0-4-0 in road contests.
  • Senior goalkeeper Matt Pacifici ranks second in the Atlantic 10 with 56 saves, registering a 1.68 goals against average in 11 starts. He has played all but 21 minutes this season.- Seniors Valeriy Sviderskiy and Alec Rotunda lead Davidson's attack with three goals apiece – with two of Rotunda's being game-winners.
