Fairfield, CT - After a season-opening loss, the Pioneer men's soccer squad returns to the field, visiting the Iona Gaels on Wednesday at 3:00 pm. Iona is also looking for its first win, after losing to NJIT in their season opener on Friday.
The Pioneers chances for another run to the playoffs are bolstered by a strong core of returning players on both sides of the ball. Up front, sophomore Jason Tessitore returns to lead the attack that he dominated last year. A first team All-Northeast Conference selection, Tessitore tied for the league lead among NEC freshman with eight goals and ranked third overall in the conference. He also finished fourth in the league with 17 points. His eight tallies were by far the most of any Pioneer.
