The Pirates played a pair of 30 minutes halves against both Princeton and St. John's, falling to the Tigers 2-1 and earning a 0-0 tie with the Red Storm.
"From a fitness standpoint we got a big test and it was nice to see that the kids survived and even at the end of game two were still competing well," head coach Kazbek Tambi said. "The other nice part about the day and having two scrimmages is that it allowed us to try different players in new positions and gather a lot of information about potential formations."
Junior Taylor Mims (Miller Place, N.Y.) provided the spark for Seton Hall offensively in the opening matchup against Princeton. She won possession of the ball near midfield and streaked past several defenders to create a breakaway opportunity, deftly tucking the ball into the far corner of the net to put the Pirates on the scoreboard.
"It is great anytime you can play against two quality opponents and really have strong competition," Tambi added. "The most important thing that we take out of it is that we can get more information about our own players."
Seton Hall wraps up its 2012 spring exhibition schedule on Friday, April 20, when it travels to Piscataway, N.J., to face off against another conference rival in Rutgers. Game time is scheduled for 7 p.m., at the RAC Fields.
"Rutgers will give us another opportunity to play against a quality BIG EAST opponent and we'll experiment a little bit through the course of the game with positions," Tambi said. "What we are really looking for is to gain valuable information about players and who could potentially execute for us under pressure situations."
