No. 8 Rutgers-Newark Bounces Back with Shutout Win at FDU

MADISON, N.J. (October 4, 2017) – The nationally-ranked No. 8 Rutgers University-Newark men's soccer team defeated host Fairleigh Dickinson University-Florham by a score of 1-0 Wednesday night in Madison.
 
Rutgers-Newark improves to 13-1-0 with the non-conference triumph, while the Devils drop to 0-10-0. R-N will return to action at Stockton University Saturday in a key New Jersey Athletic Conference (NJAC) contest.
 
The shutout is the team's 10th of the season and first in the Scarlet Raiders' last four outings. Sophomore goalkeeper Andres Medina was in goal for the duration, making seven saves and picking up his 13th win and seventh individual clean sheet.
 
Sophomore Fabio De Sousa broke a 0-0 deadlock in the 61st minute with his second penalty-kick goal in three matches, giving Rutgers-Newark the lead for good. The goal goes down as his 13th of the season and also accounts for his 29th and 30th points, and De Sousa now has scored in an incredible eight-straight matches. During that span, the Long Branch, N.J. native has nine goals, two assists and 20 total points.
 
FDU generated the first attempt after the Rutgers-Newark goal, but R-N flipped field position and possession, creating the next three opportunities.
 
The Rutgers-Newark defense did what it had to down the stretch, keeping the opposition off the board the rest of the way for a 10th clean sheet in just 14 outings.
 
Rutgers-Newark finished the game with a 23-16 margin shots and a 10-7 edge in shots on goal, while the Devils finished with a 6-2 margin in corners.
 
The Scarlet Raiders and Devils played an even start to the match, trading shots for much of the opening 35 minutes. Rutgers-Newark turned up the pressure to end the period, taking three of the final four shots and the final two corners, but the two teams went into the locker room tied at 0-0.
 
Newark held an 11-8 margin in total attempts and a 6-3 edge in shots on goal after one, and each side generated a pair of corner kicks.
 
The Scarlet Raiders – who saw a 24-match regular-season winning streak snapped Sunday – have now won 25 of their last 26 regular-season outings and have gone a sparkling 28-3 (regular-season and postseason combined) over their last 31 games.
 
Saturday's NJAC match against Stockton is slated for a 1 p.m. start and fans can visit www.rutgersnewarkathletics.com Saturday for links to follow the action live.
