  • PISCATAWAY, NJ - The No. 7 Rutgers University men's soccer team defeated the University of Richmond 2-0 in an exhibition match Aug. 23 at Yurcak Field.

    Junior midfielder Josh Gros (Mechanicsburg, PA) opened the scoring, taking a pass up the sideline from sophomore back Rory Fitzgerald (Middletown, NJ) and punching it past the goalkeeper for the score in the 13th minute.

    Rutgers took the 1-0 lead into halftime. The Knights and Spiders played a scoreless second period until junior forward Sherif El Bialy (Cairo, Egypt) sent a rocket from 22 yards outside the penalty area past Richmond goalkeeper Jacob Hofmeister in the 60th minute, propelling Rutgers to the final two-goal advantage.

    Senior goalkeeper Ricky Zinter (Penfield, NY) started the contest, notching one save for the Scarlet Knights.
