The Canisius College men’s soccer team (4-3-2) heads down the New York State Thruwway on Wednesday to meet the Marist Red Foxes in MAAC soccer action. Game time at Tenny Stadium in Poughkeepsie, N.Y., is set for 1 p.m.

GRIFFS OPEN MAAC PLAY WITH A SCORELESS DRAW
• Canisius opened the conference portion of the 2013 schedule against Manhattan Oct. 5 and the teams played to a 0-0 draw.
• The tie against the Jaspers at home moved Canisius to 8-15-2 all-time in MAAC openers.
• Senior goalkeeper Ryan Arvin made five saves for the Blue and Gold to post his third shutout of the season and the fourth in his career.
• Prior to the 0-0 tie against Manhattan, the last time Canisius played a scoreless draw in MAAC action was against Marist at home Oct. 2, 2011.

NON-CONFERENCE RECAP
• The Griffs wrapped up non-conference play with a 4-3-1 record.
• It marks the first time since Canisius joined the MAAC in 1989 that the team posted a winning record in non-conference play in consecutive seasons. The Griffs were 7-1-2 against non-league foes in 2012.
• Canisius finished the 2013 non-conference season strong, going 3-1-1 in its last five games after a 1-2-0 start.
