Quick Slants from Hofstra's 16-14 loss to Maine

Hofstra's running game accounted for 293 of the Pride's 531 offensive yards led by freshman Miguel Maysonet with 95-yards on seven carries, including a 30-yard gain to open the second half. "He's as physical a runner as we have and he has great change of direction," said Hofstra head coach Dave Cohen in the post game press conference of the Riverhead High School product and 2008 New York State Gatorade Player of the Year winner.

• Sophomore wide receiver Chaz Cervino, a transfer from Syracuse, hauled in two big fourth quarter catches before going down with a wrist injury late in the game. Coach Cohen described Cervino's injury as serious and is awaiting X-Rays on his wrist to determine the severity of it.

• Today's loss was the first time Hofstra was not victorious in its annual homecoming game since losing to Villanova 20-16 in Cohen's first season as Pride head coach.

• Hofstra defensive coordinator Rich Nagy faced Maine head coach Jack Cosgrove for the first time since he was a part of his coaching staff leading the Black Bears defense from 2001-2005. "He's a great friend, a great person and you're very fortunate to have him here," said Coach Cosgrove of Nagy in the postgame press conference. "I miss him up in Maine."


  1. 11 football articles of the 14? wow its not even like they're winning. Volleyball wins this weekend and there isnt anything about it here. Soccer just got upset and theres nothing here. Mens soccer wins 6-0 and no one knows anything. Football loses to maine and theres three articles on how. just saying this site is biased....
