Saints Silence Rival UAlbany
In an overly chippy and physical affair which you would expect when two longtime rivals lock horns, the Saints let their play do all the talking. Matt Hemsley's first goal of the season in the 59th minute proved to be the difference as the Saints stole back Capital Region bragging rights with a 1-0 triumph over crosstown rival UAlbany.
Brian Sinkoff and Travis Cooke have the call on Time Warner Cable Sports. The game will be televised in the Capital Region on both Channel 3 (standard definition) and 1803 (HD), in the Hudson Valley on Channel 413 (SD) and 461 (HD) and in New York City on Channel 199. Fans outside the viewing coverage can watch the live television stream online at SienaAllAccess.com.
The Saints (3-4) snapped a three-game losing streak with an emphatic 3-1 win Wednesday over regional rival UMass. Siena out-shot the Minutemen 25-6 in the match.

UAlbany (2-6) meanwhile has struggled of late. The Great Danes fell 2-1 Friday night at Buffalo and have lost five straight entering today's matchup.
This is the 23rd all-time meeting between the crosstown rivals with UAlbany holding a 16-4-2 all-time advantage. However, the Saints captured last year's meeting 1-0 and the programs have split the past seven matchups overall (3-3-1).
