More news about: New Jersey City men's team

MASPETH, NY ( | In the first meeting between the schools in 11 years, three different freshmen scored, including a pair of Gothic Knights who notched their first career points, and New Jersey City University, largely led by its reserves, snapped Baruch College's nine-game unbeaten streak with a 3-2 decision in non-conference men's soccer action on October 15 at the Met Oval. The contest was played under the lights in a steady rain.
NJCU wins its 11th game of the season and guaranteed no worse than a .500 record for the first time since the 2008 campaign. Baruch (7-5-3), which had last suffered a loss on September 15 (4-0 vs. #17 New York University), had been 7-0-2 in its last nine contests and won six in a row prior to Monday's setback.
It was only the second meeting ever between the clubs and the first since NJCU won 9-0 in Jersey City on October 3, 2001. NJCU played 18 men in the game, including a total of 225 minutes from five newcomers who had combined for just 211 minutes in the first 16 games of the season. Baruch, which outshot NJCU 26-7, including 17-2 in the second half (9-5 in the first half), had 24 players see time.
Freshman defender CHRISTOPHER SEGOVIA (North Bergen, NJ/Memorial) and freshman midfielder NICHOLAS O'NEILL (Eatontown, NJ/Red Bank Catholic) each netted their first collegiate goals and points before rookie forward BOBBY ATTISANO (Bayonne, NJ/County Prep) bagged his second career marker and first game-winner to help stake NJCU to a 3-0 halftime lead.
Sophomore midfielder ANDREW LOPES (Union, NJ/Union), one of the few regular starters to play more than half the game, contributed two assists—his fifth and sixth of the season—on NJCU's second and third goals.
