If you don’t know about Ryan Tierney, it’s time to sit down and learn all about him.
The Team 91 2016 alum by way of Massapequa, a first-team All-CAA selection for the past two seasons, is one of the more under-the-radar attackmen in the country, but that shouldn’t last much longer. Saturday, Tierney toasted visiting Michigan for eight points on the strength of four goals and four assists in a 12-9 Hofstra win.
Tierney had one of the best plays of anyone in the country with this ludicrous skip pass to teammate Dylan McIntosh for a goal.
