If the season ended today, the Rutgers women’s soccer team would
look at a lost year. With only one point in their past four games
and three consecutive losses, the Scarlet Knights stand in seventh
place in the Big East National Division, two spots below the cut to
qualify for a conference postseason berth.
Freshman forward JP Correa is second on the Knights with four
goals this season but leads the squad with three assists. Correa
started all but one game for second-year head coach Dan Donigan
this season, and is third in shots taken with 20.
Sophomore forward Jonelle Filigno, who leads the Knights with
six goals, is doubtful for tonight’s matchup with DePaul. The
Mississauga, Canada native missed the team’s past five matches.
Senior defender Julie Lancos admitted to not feeling added
pressure if Filigno cannot play. Lancos and the rest of the defense
allowed eight goals since Filigno’s injury on Sept. 16 against
Before Tuesday night, two things never happened to Maryland. No
opponent forced the second-ranked Terrapins to overtime on their
home field, and they had yet to drop a decision in 2011. The
Rutgers men’s soccer team broke the first streak, as it entered
overtime period tied at 1 with the Terps at Ludwig Field.
Senior forward Sam Archer scored Tuesday at Maryland, but it was
not enough to overcome the pair of goals off corner kicks goalie
Kevin McMullen allowed.
The first time senior midfielder Ashley Medcalf spoke to Rutgers
head women’s soccer coach Glenn Crooks, she had no idea what — let
alone where — Rutgers was.
The Rutgers men’s soccer team forced overtime in College Park,
Md., last night against No. 3 Maryland, but a goal seven minutes
into extra time ended the Scarlet Knights’ nonconference schedule
with a 2-1 loss.
The Terrapins tested junior goalkeeper Kevin?McMullen all night,
and he stopped every shot except for a pair of John Stertzer
Senior midfielder Ashley Medcalf scored her first goal of the
season last weekend in the Knights’ 2-1 loss to Syracuse. The
Waipahu, Hawaii native has four career goals.
A trend continues to come to life for the Rutgers men’s soccer
team. If its opponent scores early and scores first, the Scarlet
Knights are unable to climb out of their hole for a win. The
pattern continued Saturday, when the Knights dropped a 2-0 decision
to Marquette in Milwaukee for their first Big East loss.
The Rutgers men’s soccer team will be without two key
contributors tonight, when it plays third-ranked Maryland in
College Park, Md. Second-leading scorer JP?Correa, above, is
suspended for penalties, and junior defender Joe Setchell has an
After Syracuse’s Cecilia Borgstrom tapped a deflected cross by
Tina Romagnuolo past Rutgers women’s soccer goalkeeper Emmy
Simpkins in double-overtime yesterday at Yurcak Field, the entire
Scarlet Knights sideline stood staring in disbelief. The goal gave
the Orange a 2-1 victory, the Knights their third consecutive
defeat and shifted head coach Glenn Crooks’ focus from attaining a
Big East Championship berth to simply fixing his sputtering
Junior goalkeeper Emmy Simpkins made six saves for the Knights
yesterday at Yurcak Field, but it was not enough, as Syracuse’s
Cecilia Borgstrom scored the decisive goal in double overtime.
After a disappointing draw against non-conference Adelphi on
Tuesday after two overtime periods, the Rutgers men’s soccer team
heads out on the road for its second Big East matchup of the year.
It does so against Marquette, the same team that handed the Scarlet
Knights their first of eight conference losses last season.
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
Sophomore Kene Eze tallied a hat trick against Adelphi?Tuesday,
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.
His first-minute goal put the Scarlet Knights ahead, and his
65th-minute strike tied Adelphi at 3 and forced overtime.
Freshman JP?Correa assisted on one of Kene Eze’s goals.
