“Really, there is no strength; we’re well balanced. Our defense can play lock-down every game. We’re letting up about seven goals a game and our offense is running the sets. We’ve had about 5-6 kids playing since freshman year and we’ve all grown a lot,” said Pinciaro, a Sport Management major.

“I really love going to school around home because I can basically go home to my family whenever. I couldn’t ask for a better coach; he’s definitely a big reason why I’m here and for the success I’m having.”

Upcoming tests

Endicott, which has captured seven league titles under Quirk, still has some big games remaining in the regular season. The Gulls host Wentworth tonight (7 p.m.) and Gordon Saturday (3 p.m.) before playing at No. 7 Tufts next Tuesday. Endicott also faces conference rival Western New England College next week and hosts No. 20 Bowdoin on Saturday, April 19.

There’s still a long road ahead for the Gulls, but they feel like it’s a road they can travel together.

“We have a lot of standards in our program. We want to win the CCC every year, and this year the guys feel that they can do that,” Quirk said. “They feel that if we do win our conference or get an at-large bid to the NCAAs, they feel like they are one of the better teams in the country.”
