Men’s soccer beaten by Rutgers-Newark

Ewing, NJ | The Farmingdale State College men’s soccer team entered halftime of Sunday night’s game against Rutgers University-Newark trailing 2-1 after a 45th-minute count by senior winger Michael Lanouette (Hamden, Conn.), before the Scarlet Raiders pulled away with a two-goal in the second stanza to overtake the Rams on the second and final day of the TCNJ Men’s Soccer Classic, 4-1.

Rutgers-Newark (1-1) took the lead in the 18th minute when Franco Catania headed his first of two goals of the day, before an own goal doubled the Scarlet Raiders lead nine minutes later.

FSC (0-3) pulled a goal back when Lanouette was sent on goal by rookie Hubert Fryzel (Woodhaven, NY) and finished in the bottom right corner to cut the Rams’ deficit in half before the break.

Catania pushed the Rutgers-Newark advantage to two 30 seconds into the second half, before crossing into the box for a Patrick O’Dwyer scorer less than 10 minutes before full time to explain the final scoreline.

Farmingdale State senior guard Justin Silva (Bellerose, NY) stopped five shots on the night.

Head coach Chuck Schimpf’s Rams are back in non-conference action Tuesday night (Sept. 6), when they host Eastern University in a 6:30 p.m. kickoff.
