When the Rutgers women’s soccer team takes Yurcak Field tonight
to face St. John’s, it will likely mark the team’s fourth
consecutive game without sophomore forward Jonelle Filigno. Though
the Scarlet Knights would like to have their leading scorer in the
lineup –– Filigno scored six goals this season –– head coach Glenn
Crooks is not dwelling on the prospect of life without his star

but the Scarlet Knights only earned a 3-3 tie at Yurcak Field.
Rutgers matches up with a Marquette team that kickstarted its
eight-game losing streak last season in the conference.
Rutgers head men’s soccer coach Dan Donigan told his team all
season that the Scarlet Knights’ out-of-conference games were meant
to be tests for conference play. At Yurcak Field last night,
Adelphi gave the Knights a test they will not forget soon as the
third meeting between the teams turned into a back-and-forth battle
that ended in a 3-3 tie after the first two overtime periods of the
year for Rutgers.
Sophomore forward Kene Eze recorded the first hat trick since
2003 for the Rutgers men’s soccer team last night at Yurcak Field.

Knights’ scoreless weekend on the road.

Freshman forward JP Correa recorded his first career two-goal
game in the Knights’ 3-1 victory against Pittsburgh, upping the

also leads the team in points (10) and shots (15) in his first
season for head coach Dan Donigan.
Before entering its first Big East game of the season against
Pittsburgh Friday, the Rutgers men’s soccer team did not give
itself many options. As far as the Scarlet Knights were concerned,
the only option was to start conference play 1-0. With their 3-1
victory at a rain-covered Yurcak Field, the Knights received the
only option they wanted.
The Rutgers men’s soccer team lost two games last weekend at

that will not be on their mind, either.
Rutgers head women’s soccer coach Glenn Crooks said it himself
last Sunday after the Scarlet Knights’ 4-1 loss to Georgetown: The
Hoyas were hungrier.
When the Knights (6-3, 1-1) take on Pittsburgh tonight to open
their second weekend of Big East play, Crooks does not expect it to
be a recurring issue.
Freshman forward Stefanie Scholz scored the first goal of her
young Rutgers career in a 4-1 loss to Georgetown last Sunday in
Washington, D.C. The South Hackensack, N.J., native is one of four
Knights players with at least one goal this season.

usually represents the last game they play in front of a home crowd
before moving on to endeavors outside of sports.

earlier this season, will operate as a student-assistant for the
Scarlet Knights in her final season on the Banks. The Alberta,

despite playing his first season with the Scarlet Knights after
trasferring from Tyler Texas Junior College.
Playing split weekends is something every Big East women’s
soccer program deals with at least once a season. It just so
happened that for Rutgers, the agenda consisted of playing at home
Friday and on the road in Washington D.C., yesterday to open its
conference slate. But according to head coach Glenn Crooks, that is
not where the Scarlet Knights (6-3, 1-1) went wrong in a 4-1 loss
to Georgetown. The Hoyas simply wanted it more.
