Winners of six of their last eight, Siena (7-7-2, 5-2) could clinch a MAAC Tournament berth as soon as today. The Saints are in search of the program's third straight MAAC Tournament berth and eighth in the past 10 seasons.

Siena is coming off a key 1-0 road win at Manhattan Saturday, in which freshman Conor McGlynn scored the lone goal with just 2:08 remaining in regulation. The score was the first career tally for the impressive rookie who ranks 31st nationally - and second in the MAAC - with six assists. As a team, the Saints rank 24th nationally with 26 assists this season.


 

 

Siena has won all three of its conference home matches this season, and four straight dating back to last season. The Saints have won each of those contests by identical 2-1 scores.

Siena and Canisius (7-7-1, 3-3-1) are set to meet for the 29th time, with the Saints leading the all-time series 16-11-1. The Saints have captured the past two meetings, including a 1-0 triumph in Buffalo last season on a sixth minute goal by David Itoafa which propelled Siena to its first victory at the Demske Sports Complex since 1997. The Saints have won each of the past four matchups in Loudonville, outscoring the Golden Griffins by an 8-2 margin.

Predicted to finish eighth according to the MAAC Preseason Coaches' Poll, Canisius currently holds down the No. 6 spot in the league standings following wins over Monmouth and Saint Peter's last week. The Golden Griffins enter play today with just a one-point edge on challengers Fairfield and Iona for the sixth and final MAAC Tournament spot.
