  • PISCATAWAY, NJ – Michigan State’s Veerle Goudswaard scored three goals as Michigan State, the defending co-champions of the Big Ten Conference, defeated Rutgers 4-0 on Thursday evening at the Rutgers Stadium Complex. With the loss, RU drops to 3-2 overall while MSU improves to 5-0.

    The Spartans, who were coming off a 6-2 victory over Virginia, scored just 11 seconds into the game, as Michelle Huyuh-Ba scored off a pass from Ashley Pernicano. Michigan State made the score 2-0 when Goudswaard scored her first goal of the game with 33:14 remaining in the period.

    From there, however, the Rutgers defense settled in and didn’t allow another goal for the rest of the half. Freshman goalie Kristin Van Rooij (Den Bosch, The Netherlands) made three first half saves, including one as time expired in the half.

    Goudswaard scored both of Michigan State’s goals in the second half, including one at the 24:20 mark that came on a penalty stroke. Despite facing 15 shots on goal, Van Rooij made 11 saves. Midway through the second half, the Spartans had four consecutive penalty corners, but Van Rooij and the RU defense stuffed them on each attempt.

    Rutgers did not register a shot on goal and Michigan State held a 7-0 advantage in penalty corners. MSU, which was averaging 4.25 goals per game entering the contest, was held to its second-lowest offensive output of the season.

    The Scarlet Knights return to action on Friday, Sept. 10, when it hosts Drexel at the Rutgers Stadium Complex. Gametime is set for 7:30 p.m.
