The Terriers shutout streak is still alive after tonight’s game with the University of Albany Great Danes. On the other hand their four-game winning streak has come to an end this evening as tonight’s game finished in a 0-0 draw.

Since the Terriers dreadful (0-4) start, they are (4-0-2) over their last six games and their play has been indicative of their record. Tonight neither team could get anything going on the offensive end. That has been the case for the Terriers’ opponents of late as they have not allowed a goal since September 13, against Lafayette College.

That is an impressive mark and the team can look no further to their great goalkeeper Jack Binks who has been stellar this year. Tonight he was solid as usual stopping all three shots that were fired his way. Binks has been impossible to score against over the past five games as he is racking up shutout after shutout.

Binks was faced with one tough test tonight as he turned away a great scoring attempt from the Great Danes’ senior midfielder Brandon Wilson in the 102nd minute of play. This was a big time save from a big time player. That is exactly what needs to be done in the most crucial parts of the game.

On defense the Terriers made it extremely difficult for the Great Danes to get anything going. Terriers’ sophomore defender Paul Galimi and senior defender Ricardo Milano have locked down the defensive end of the field for the Terriers. They both have really held the fort tight will star defender Andy Cormack has been out.

Moving forward the Terriers must continue playing at this high level. It looks like there has been two completely different teams playing for St. Francis College this year. At the beginning of the year there was no sign of life from this team, and now they are playing top notch ball which is expected out of them.

The Terriers are back in action on Saturday October 4th, when they take on NJIT (New Jersey Institute of Technology). The game will be played at the Terriers’ home field Brooklyn Bridge Park-Pier 5, at 1 pm.
