Howard soccer tops Rutgers with crazy ending

PISCATAWAY, N.J. (October 9, 2018) – In double overtime, Coach Phillip Gyau and the Howard University Men’s Soccer team secured their second win of the season by taking down Big Ten foe Rutgers, 1-0, at Yurcak Field.

After 100 minutes, both squads were held scoreless. At the 106-minute mark, a ball ricocheted from Rutger’s keeper Rafael Pereira where sophomore defender Matteo Turner (Hamilton, Bermuda) capitalized with his first collegiate goal and sent the Bison home victorious.

Despite being outshot, 16-11, HU’s defense kept RU off the board and gave themselves a chance. Junior goalkeeper Carlos Caro (Silver Spring, Md.) posted a match-best eight saves in the win.

For Rutgers (2-9-1), Pereira had a team-high five stops in a losing effort.

Howard (2-5-3) concludes its road swing in Atlanta when they resume conference play at Georgia State. Match time is scheduled for 7 p.m.
