The Rutgers men’s soccer team walked off of Ludwig Field on the
Maryland campus nearly a month ago following arguably its most
bitter defeat of the season. The Scarlet Knights went above and
beyond their expectations during the matchup, forcing the No. 2
team in the nation into overtime despite playing a man down
following a red card. But a single goal early in overtime ended the
Knights’ hopes of an upset.
Head coach Dan Donigan’s team earned its first Big East bye
Senior forward Ibrahim Kamara and the Knights took 10 shots in a
2-1 loss to No. 2 Maryland before a 5-0-2 unbeaten streak.
The way the Rutgers men’s soccer team feels about its 0-0 draw
against No. 5 South Florida yesterday is all a matter of
perspective. For most people, ending the season at a neutral site
because of inclement weather and not earning the No. 1 spot in the
Big East Red Division is a legitimate blow. But the tie game marked
the seventh consecutive contest for the Scarlet Knights (9-5-3,
6-1-2) without a defeat.
Head coach Dan?Donigan’s team finished the regular season in
second place in the Big East Red Division.
Senior forward Ibrahim?Kamara recorded a team-high four shots
against South Florida in the Scarlet Knights’ season finale.
Junior goalkeeper Kevin McMullen saved four South Florida shots
yesterday in the Scarlet Knights’ season-ending draw. The shutout
was Rutgers’ third clean sheet of the season and its second in as
many games after defeating St. John’s, 1-0.
It rolled and rolled and rolled. That was the only way junior
goalkeeper Emmy Simpkins described the goal yesterday that ended
the Rutgers women’s soccer team’s season. The Concord, N.C., native
left the Scarlet Knights’ net to stop Providence’s Taylor Bartini,
who charged the goal on a breakaway. But Simpkins slipped, Bartini
got the shot off and everyone in attendance for a sloppy and rainy
affair watched the ball slowly cross the goal line, giving
Providence a 1-0 win.
The Rutgers men’s soccer team is living proof of how much can
change in one year. At this time a year ago, the Scarlet Knights
fought for the last available slot in the Big East Tournament
against DePaul at home. The season ended without a postseason
berth. With a 1-0 win in two overtime periods against No.11 St.
John’s on Wednesday, the Knights not only clinched a postseason
berth, but a bye to the quarterfinals of the Big East
Freshman forward Cassie Inacio, who made her postseason debut in
the Knights’ 1-0 loss to Providence, led the team with two shots on
goal in the contest.

game-winning goal in double overtime against St. John’s.

1-0 loss to Providence but could not stop a Taylor Bartini shot
that trickled into the net. With the loss, Rutgers makes a first
round exit in the Big East Championships for the second straight
In tying Seton Hall to close its regular season, the Rutgers
women’s soccer team did more than snag a No. 5 seed in the Big East
Championships. With the draw, the Scarlet Knights finally gave
themselves breathing room. “I think the team does feel good about
themselves right now and I think we also recognize that we have a
new life,” said head coach Glenn Crooks.
Freshman forward Stephanie Scholz makes her Big East
Championship debut today in the Knights’ match at Providence.
Scholz is second on the team in scoring with three goals.
Senior Julie Lancos, who played center back for most of the
season, will operate in the front third against Providence. Lancos
scored an overtime goal in a 2-1 win at Cincinnati.
The last time the Rutgers men’s soccer team made the Big East
Tournament was in 2009, and Red Division-rival St. John’s knocked
the Scarlet Knights out in the quarterfinals. The Knights head to
Queens, N.Y., tonight to try to enact revenge from the 2009 loss
when they take on the No. 25 Johnnies with only two regular season
games remaining. “Obviously they are a very good team.
Senior forward Ibrahim Kamara earned a spot on the Big East
Weekly Honor Roll on?Monday for the second time this season. Kamara
recorded two goals and two assists in the Knights’ past five games,
when they posted a 4-0-1 record against Big East competition.
Junior defender Joe Setchell is suspended against St.
Before the Rutgers men’s soccer team’s matchup against No. 10
Louisville on Saturday, freshman forward JP Correa was on a
seven-match scoreless streak. But the Montville, N.J., native’s
goal against the Cardinals proved to be all the Scarlet Knights
needed to force a 1-1 draw after two overtime periods. “It’s a
really good result. We are very pleased with it. Louisville is a
very good team,” said head coach Dan Donigan.
With the Rutgers women’s soccer team’s season on the line on the
Scarlet Knights’ Senior Night, someone needed to step up. So it is
only fitting that with 17 minutes remaining and the Knights facing
a one-goal deficit to Seton Hall, a pair of seniors answered the
call. Junior forward Stefanee Pace launched a free kick from near
midfield in the 73rd minute, creating a scramble in front of the
net as the ball squirted back to senior Jasmine Edwards.
