The Delmar native and Bethlehem High grad was a walk on his freshman season. As a senior, Mulhall is one of three captains with Mazzone and fellow senior Chris Viviano.
"It's a nice honor for the guys, they've earned it with an 8 0 regular season record," Siena coach Brian Brecht said. "You can wipe Under Armour Curry 3 High
The Saints know that all too well.

Even more impressive is the team's numbers in MAAC play. Siena has more than twice as many goals (98) in its eight conference games than they've allowed (48).
a long stick defender and now is part of the nation's second ranked defense in terms of goals allowed (6.67 per game), behind only Notre Dame (6.23).
In 2007, Siena earned the top seed, but was upset, 9 7, by Providence, which went on to win the championship.
"Last year was a disappointment, so we had that bad taste in our mouths this whole season," echoed Mazzone.
that slate clean though, because right now, it's 60 minutes to keep on moving forward."

"We've worked a lot harder," added Mazzone. "In '07 we were young and it was our first time there. We were just happy to be there, but now we're going there with the expectations to win."
"We're prepared for everything, we're fundamentally sound and we have a hell of a Under Armour Basketball Shoes goalie in Brent Hersbt that is a great last resort if things break down and mistakes are made," Brecht said. "He covers for a lot of mistakes."

Siena played host to the MAAC Tournament in 2008, but the team finished just 4 4 in league play and was left out of the four team tournament, an experience that Mulhall called "heartbreaking."
"We're a lot more mature," Brecht said about this year's club. "We have 17 seniors that were a part of my first recruiting class that I've coached from the day they stepped into the locker room until the day they step out of that locker room in the next couple weeks."
"It's a bit of revenge," said senior defender Dan Mulhall.
No matter what happens this weekend, this senior class will look back at their time wearing the Green Gold as some of the most important years in getting this program on the right track.
