Men's Soccer   Season record: 3-4 (B1G 1-1

The loss to No. 14 Indiana dropped the Knights below .500 for the season, and evened their B1G record at 1-1.  Freshman Niel Guzman scored one in the 40th minute of play, tying the game, coming off a rebound from freshman Jason Wright. The assist was the second of the season for Wright. Sophomore goalkeeper David Greczek made seven saves on the night, including a diving penalty kick save in the first half with the game still scoreless.  Earlier in the week, Rutgers dropped a 3-0 match to intrastate rival Monmouth.

Women's Soccer   Season record: 6-1-0  (B1G 2-1-0)

Two wins over the state of Michigan put the Knights in the thick of the Big Ten soccer race. Sunday's win over No. 21 Michigan was a statement for the women.  The Knights held the Wolverines (7-3-0, 3-1 Big Ten) without a shot on goal in the 1-0 win. Stef Scholz crossed a ball to set Jessica Puchalski for the lone - and winning - goal.   Against Michigan State, junior Sam Valliant tallied the lone goal and goalkeeper Casey Murphy made four saves.





Field Hockey  Season record: 4-3 (B1G 0-1)

The Big Ten era and season started off with a 3-0 loss to Iowa.  The B1G is a strong Field Hockey conference, and Iowa was a solid test to measure the Knights' position.  In the game, Goalkeeper Shevaunn Hayes made eight saves in the loss.  Iowa put 12 shots on net
