Nothing new happened Tuesday night.In fact, it was the same old story – just a bigger letdown. Despite junior forward Jason Wright’s hat trick, and the Rutgers men’s soccer team cutting what was once a 5-0 lead to 5-4, they were defeated again Tuesday night against No. 15 Florida Gulf Coast 6-5. “Obviously it wasn’t a very good defensive game between either team,” said head coach Dan Donigan.
After earning its first tie of the season, the Rutgers men’s soccer team will try to ride its momentum into its fourth non-conference game of the season against the highest scoring team in the country — Florida Gulf Coast.

The Rutgers men’s soccer team had the chance to beat or even tie No. 4 ranked Maryland last Tuesday. But neither happened. After a late double-overtime goal, the Terrapins solidified themselves as the winners, handing the Scarlet Knights (0-5, 0-2) their fifth straight loss. Rutgers has only faced teams ranked nationally in the top 15 until now with one exception. But a similar struggling team awaits the Knights on Sunday. The battered Ohio State Buckeyes will host Rutgers in a match that was much more anticipated last year. The Buckeyes (1-5, 1-1) haven't been able to string together wins just like the Knights. Both teams ended the 2016 season hosting ranked teams. Ohio State opened up its season hosting the Bert and Iris Wolstein Classic, losing both games in overtime.

The Scarlet Knights went 12-7-2 making their first NCAA Tournament appearance since 2011, reached the semifinals of the Big Ten Tournament and finished ranked No. 23 in the final NSCAA coach’s poll.The Knights shocked everyone with their accomplishments, but they had many contributors to that success. Jason Wright was, obviously, the main one. The then-sophomore captured the Big Ten Offensive Player of the Year award, earned Second Team NSCAA All-American honors, NSCAA First Team All-Region honors, unanimous First Team All-Big Ten selection and was chosen, a whopping, four times for the Big Ten Offensive Player of the Week award. Wright was also complimented by midfielder, Mitchell Taintor.Taintor, who graduated last year, played in 20 of Rutgers' 21 games, putting up five goals, five assists and ending the season with a total of 25 shots on goal.Also from the Class of 2016 is Mitch Lurie, who now plays professionally for Toronto FC.

The pattern continued for the Scarlet Knights, yet again allowing an early goal that cost them in a tightly contested game that ended in a 2-1, double overtime loss. “Maryland kept coming at us,” said head coach Dan Donigan.

For the first time since 2011, LIU Brooklyn defeated the Rutgers softball team by a score of 4-3 Wednesday afternoon. In a game that took eight innings in (i think this would sound better if it were the name of the field, not Brooklyn :*) Brooklyn, a shot off the bat from Kayla Gloady deflected off of senior pitcher Dresden Maddox’s foot and trickled into the outfield as Victoria Zamora trotted in to score the winning run. “If we played a clean game today, we win,” said head Coach Jay Nelson.
The Rutgers softball team is hoping to extend its winning streak to a total of six games on Wednesday as the Scarlet Knights hit the road for a rematch against LIU Brooklyn (22-24). Though one thing will be different from the first time the Scarlet Knights (23-26) matched up against the Blackbirds, and that is no sunny setting with palm trees surrounding the stadium. Their first meeting was played in Boca Raton, Florida, over the Florida Atlantic Tournament where Rutgers took the game by a score of 2-1. Since then, LIU has earned a 16-9 record, dominating through conference play with a 10-2 record. But the Knights are playing the best ball all season. Although Rutgers is just two games over the .500 mark at 16-14 since playing LIU, after sweeping two conference opponents in Maryland and Indiana the Knights are feeling unstoppable. But even though Rutgers clinched a spot in the Big Ten Tournament and Wednesday’s game is the last non-conference opponent all year before heading to Michigan to face the Spartans and Wolvernies, head coach Jay Nelson still preaches to his team the importance of looking at one game at a time.
This weekend’s series against Indiana will determine if the Rutgers softball team will be playing in this year's postseason competition. The Scarlet Knights (20-26, 4-10) will host the Hoosiers (24-19, 68) this weekend for their last home series of the year.
In order for a team to reach the Big Ten Tournament, a team must place in the top 12 in their conference. For the Rutgers softball team, winning both games on the road against Maryland gave it a slight lead over the Terrapins in the standings and a spot in the top 12 for the Scarlet Knights to control their own destiny throughout the remaining three weeks of the season. The Knights (20-36, 4-10) defeated Maryland (11-32, 3-11) in both games of a double header Wednesday evening. Rutgers took game one by a score of 4-0 and won game two by a score of 6-3. Senior Dresden Maddox took the circle in game one tossing a complete game shutout, dominating the opposing offense and limiting them to only four hits. “Dresden came out and shut them out in the first game, and that was huge,” said head coach Jay Nelson. The Knights drew blood first in the third inning, scoring 2 runs off one hit and one error. Senior Stephanie Huang got things started singling up the middle.
For the 2016 Rutgers softball team, playing top-ranked opponents has shown through in its play these past few weeks.The Scarlet Knights have lost six straight, getting outscored in those games 64-19.Although those six games were against then-No. 24 Ohio State and No. 21 Minnesota, the Knights were unable to muster up any offense nor was able to slow down the bats of top-25 programs.Fortunately for Rutgers, the team it will face Wednesday in a Big Ten midweek double header ranks one spot below in the basement of Big Ten team ERA at 6.87.The Maryland Terrapins have the worst overall record in the Big Ten at 11-30, but that won't make the Knights approach them any differently when they meet in College Park on Wednesday.“I guess we're just ready to go out and attack them like we’ve been trying to attack these last two teams,” said senior Dresden Maddox.
The Rutgers softball team was left hoping just that its next opponent won't be ranked after last weekend's game.For the second straight weekend, the Scarlet Knights (18-26) were overpowered and swept on their own field by a more dominate Big Ten opponent.“I think we just got taken out of our game,” said head coach Jay Nelson.In game one, the Knights knew there was no running from reigning 2015 All Big Ten pitcher Sara Groenewegen.And Groenewegen lived up to the hype striking out 11 over 5 2-3 innings of work and didn't give up any runs.The Golden Gophers started early by jumping on senior Dresden Maddox, putting up a five spot in the first inning.
