The College's women's soccer team tied Montclair State University 0-0 in the New Jersey Athletic Conference (NJAC) championship game on Saturday, but Montclair claimed the title 3-1 on penalty kicks. It is the first NJAC championship win for the Red Hawks and it gained them an automatic bid into the NCAA Division III tournament.
The College's men's soccer season came to a disappointing close last week with the Lions' 2-0 loss to Kean University last Wednesday night. If they had won, the Lions would have had a chance to qualify for the upcoming conference postseason tournament. The loss to Kean came as many others did in the Lions' season, as they were unable to score at critical points during the game yet again.
The College's football team did not disappoint a packed Lions' Stadium on Saturday in its homecoming game against Western Connecticut State University. Trailing by 12 points at halftime, the Lions stormed back and won 34-26.
The Lions didn't start off their Homecoming game the way they had hoped.
The College's men's soccer team finally put an end to their seven-game scoreless streak last week, but still suffered two rough defeats to non-conference teams.
Last Wednesday, the College took on Drew University, the 2003 National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) Division III National runner-ups.
For the third straight week, the College's men's soccer team was held scoreless in two straight games. This week, however, the team paid dearly as it suffered two defeats, a 2-0 loss to Rowan University and a 1-0 loss to Rutgers University-Camden.
Although, two weeks ago the Lions were able to get by with two scoreless ties, their luck ran out last week against the two New Jersey Athletic Conference (NJAC) opponents.
Although the College's men's soccer team did not score a single goal in two games last week against Ramapo College and Richard Stockton College, they were able to get through the week without losing either. Both games ended in 0-0 ties and much of the credit for those two ties must be given to freshman goalkeeper Michael Cladek.
The College's men's soccer team did not kick off its New Jersey Athletic Conference (NJAC) schedule the way it had hoped. Last Saturday, the Lions suffered their second loss of the year, 3-0, at undefeated Montclair State University.
In the first half, the College's defense was staunch and did not allow a goal.
Living in a country halfway across the world can be intimidating, especially in a college environment. But freshman midfielder Kolja Mueller, who is at the College because of an international exchange program, is adjusting just fine.
He proved this when he led the men's soccer team to victory on Friday with his overtime game-winning goal against DeSales University in the Osprey Classic at Richard Stockton College.
