HAMDEN — The Bobcats, after winning their first two nonconference games at home, head to the road against the Manhattan College Jaspers. This time around, though, the game will take on a greater significance. Fourteen Bobcats and sixteen Jaspers will be playing each other for the first time due to the large number of freshman on both sides.
“We have a more up-tempo style than Manhattan. Sometimes we have a tendency to get hung up on who we’re playing, not how we’re playing,” Coach Fekete said. “We’re 70% freshman and sophomores.”
Coach Fekete was taking note of the youth of both teams, and he knows that this will be the first road game for the Bobcats freshmen; a chance to show the rest of the team and coaching staff what they can do.
“We just need confidence. Winning is an art form not easily done. It’s instilled over time. The more wins your kids can have obviously the more confidence we’ll have. This is an extremely difficult league schedule,” Fekete said.
The Bobcats offense, which has scored 25 goals through 2 games, plays a Manhattan team coming off of a thrilling overtime home victory against Robert Morris last weekend. Playing the Bobcats will be the Jasper’s third game, including an exhibition against Brown University.
Game time is 1pm on Saturday, March 1. The Bobcats next home game is March 8 against Providence. Game time is 1pm.
