NEC News of the Day: Wagner Well-Covered, Monmouth too!

The Staten Island Advance has always been a must-read for Wagner fans. 

Whether it’s through the reporting of the legendary Jack Minogue or the highly-esteemed Cormac Gordon, The Advance has had its fingers on the pulse of Wagner Athletics for quite some time. 

Wagner officially released it complete men’s basketball schedule earlier this week and who better to comment on such a transpiring than Gordan, who has been a press row staple at the Spiro Sports Center for decades.

And if hoops isn’t your cup of tea, there’s a story about Walt Hameline and the Wagner gridders as well.  The Seahawks find themselves at 1-2 after scoring a season-opening NEC win over Saint Francis (PA), hanging tough in a road setback at No. 9 Richmond, and dropping a four-point heartbreaker at home to NEC preseason favorite Central Connecticut.

They’ll take on Bryant in an ever-important conference matchup this week and the Advance’s Jim Waggoner examined the state of the Seahawks heading into their Week 4 matchup.

Over the Outer Bridge and Down the Shore
From Staten Island, Overtime! switches focus down to the Jersey Shore where Monmouth football is preparing for Saturday’s road match with Central Connecticut.

Gannett columnist Steve Edelson shared his thoughts on the Hawks in the days after its stunning road win at Villanova, which was a FCS playoff semifinalist in 2010 after winning it all in 2009.

Edelson’s latest work was in this morning’s edition of the Asbury Park Press.
