  • COLUMBUS, OH – The No. 12 Rutgers men’s soccer team tied Ohio State 2-2 at the College Cup Preview exhibition match Aug. 27 at Crew Stadium in Columbus, OH.

    The Buckeyes got on the board first with a successful penalty kick in the 41st minute, but sophomore Nick Labrocca (Howell, NJ) evened the match in the 56th minute when he headed in a ball from freshman Zach Simi (East Brunswick, NJ). Ohio State again took the lead, scoring off a direct kick in the 63rd minute, but Labrocca converted a penalty kick five minutes later to knot the score for good.

    George Vasilakis (Toms River, NJ), Lubos Ancin (Burlington, NJ) and William Shiles (Silver Spring, MD) all received time in goal for the Scarlet Knights. Vasilakis made one save in 30:16, while Ancin (28:18) and Chiles (31:26) each allowed a goal.

    Rutgers will officially begin the season Friday, Sept. 3, with a home match against Pittsburgh at 7:00 p.m.
