Rutgers head women’s soccer coach Glenn Crooks knew no matter
how the dominos fell around the Big East this weekend, his team
needed to win in order to secure a playoff berth. Although the
Scarlet Knights (8-7-2, 3-5-2) escaped the weekend with only one
victory and three points, the team carries the same focus into its
final match of the season Friday against Seton Hall.
In the middle of its seven-game Big East stretch, the Rutgers
men’s soccer team proved it could win at home last week, when it
downed a pair of conference opponents. The Scarlet Knights took to
the road and notched their first road conference win of the season
Saturday with a 1-0 win against DePaul. “These are crucial points
that we are getting with these wins, especially on the road against
what we consider one of the toughest places to play,” said head
coach Dan Donigan.
Senior defender Julie Lancos kept the Knights alive in
conference play with a goal three minutes into overtime against
Senior forward Ibrahim Kamara scored the Knights’ lone goal
against DePaul just nine minutes into the action in Chicago, giving
Rutgers its first conference victory on the road this season.
Kamara improved his season scoring total to two, good for fourth on
The Rutgers men’s soccer team continues its Big East slate this
weekend, when the Scarlet Knights travel to Chicago to take on
DePaul. The Knights (6-5-1, 3-1) enter the conference match off a
3-2 victory over Villanova, which helped Rutgers ascend to the No.
2 spot in the Big East Red Division.
With eight points and three games remaining in conference play,
the Rutgers women’s soccer team faces an uphill climb in the Big
East National Division. The Scarlet Knights (7-6-2, 2-4-2) also
face the test of playing two of their final three games on the
road, where the squad is 1-4-1 this season. But the Knights’ road
record is not a concern for head coach Glenn Crooks as the team
heads into its final road weekend of the season.
Senior midfielder Bryant Knibbs notched his first career
multiple-goal game against Villanova earlier this week, and is
fourth on the Knights with three goals.
Freshman forward Stefanie Scholz scored two of the Scarlet
Knights’ three goals, with the latest coming last Friday in a 1-0
win against DePaul. The South Hackensack, N.J., native is tied for
second on the team with two goals.
The Rutgers men’s soccer team could post a laundry list of
reasons why they wanted to beat Villanova last night at Yurcak
Field. On one hand, the Scarlet Knights looked for some revenge
after the Wildcats took the last five decisions between the two
teams. On the other, with all 16 Big East teams in action last
night, the Knights’ contest held the most top-rank sway.
Injury forced senior midfielder Bryant?Knibbs into a more
attacking role last night against Villanova, and he responded with
a pair of goals, including a game-winner in the 66th minute to
break a 2-2 tie at Yurcak?Field.
Villanova goalkeeper John Fogarty charged at Nate Bourdeau in
the second half, but the senior midfielder chipped the ball past
the goalkeeper to knot the score at 2. Bourdeau scored twice Sunday
against Cincinnati, giving him three goals in the past two
The Rutgers men’s soccer team sits in second place in the Big
East’s Red Division standings after a pivotal win Sunday against
Cincinnati. But the Scarlet Knights face a quick turnaround as
Villanova, the team one spot below the Knights in the standings,
pays a visit to Yurcak Field tonight with a chance to seize the No.
Sophomore Kene Eze quickly made an impact after transferring
from William?Paterson, but is questionable with a head injury.
Senior forward Nate Bourdeau is one of three Scarlet Knights
with more than one goal this season, and each of his came this
weekend in a 2-1 comeback victory over Cincinnati. The victory gave
Rutgers the second spot in the Big East Red Division.
After making the first two starts of her career last weekend
against DePaul and Notre Dame, junior goalkeeper Jess Janosz also
earned her first collegiate distinction.
On paper, junior Rachel Breton does not make a whole lot of
noise. But on the field, her play speaks for itself. The transfer
joined the Rutgers women’s soccer team as a forward this year after
leaving Villanova at the end of the 2009 season to be closer to
The Rutgers men’s soccer team hosted Cincinnati on Sunday at
Yurcak Field to kick off a seven-game stretch in the Big East. The
Scarlet Knights overcame the Bearcats, 2-1, to gain not only a
victory, but also a second-place standing in the Big East’s Red
Junior Jess Janosz, left, posted consecutive shutouts in her
first two career starts over the weekend at Yurcak Field.
Senior Nate Bourdeau scored both of the Scarlet Knights’ goals
Sunday in a 2-1 against visiting Cincinnati at Yurcak Field. The
senior earned credit for Rutgers’ first goal, which bounced off a
Bearcat defender and into the net.
Junior Rachel Breton played all over the field for head coach
Glenn Crooks this season, serving time in the Knights’ attack and
most recently as a member of the squad’s defense.
