Rutgers Women’s Soccer Ends in Tie With Michigan

The 25th ranked Rutgers Scarlet Knights faced off against the Michigan Wolverines on Sunday at Yurack Field in Piscataway, NJ. This was a game known as Rutgers’ annual “Pink Out” game in which the women wore pink uniforms for breast cancer awareness. This was the second meeting between the two schools.

Neither team could post a score in the first 45 minutes, and the game was tied at zero at halftime.

In the 58th minute, the Wolverines struck first when Corinne Harris kicked the ball into the goal to give them the lead. Rutgers was kept out of the net for the next 14 minutes until Brianne Reed kicked the ball, which bounced around a Michigan defender and finally went into the net.

Megan Hinz recorded seven saves for Michigan, and Casey Murphy recorded a season-high six saves for Rutgers, and the game ended in a 1-1 draw after double overtime. This is the first time that the Scarlet Knights have played to a draw this season.

Their record is now 9-2-1 on the season. Their next game will be against the Indiana Hoosiers on Thursday at Yurack Field. Game time is at 8:00 p.m.

Rutgers Field Hockey Knocks off Ohio

The Rutgers field hockey team played a tight game against the Ohio Bobcats on Sunday. The game was played at a neutral site in East Lansing, MI. The Bobcats outshot the Knights 10-6, but both teams tied with four shots each in the second half.

Rachel Yaney put Rutgers on top with a goal 16:50 into the game. She scored the goal that was assisted by Linde van Schaik. With ten minutes left in the game, Jade Dixon scored on a pass from Nicole Imbriaco to give the Knights of a 2-0 lead with little time left. This was the second goal of the season for Dixon. It was also the second goal in her young career.

Rutgers was just minutes away from their third shutout win of the season, but Hannah Kingsbury scored a goal with just over a minute left to end the shutout. Rutgers still won the game, 2-1.

A big key to the victory for the Knights was the difference in the goalkeepers. Shevaun Heyes recorded three saves while only allowing the one goal for the Knights. For the Bobcats, Lina Trucco allowed two goals and only recorded one save.

Rutgers improves their record to 6-5, and will look to win over two Ohio teams in one week when they face off against Ohio State on Friday. The game will begin at 3:30 p.m ET.
