  • PISCATAWAY, NJ - Despite outshooting Temple, 16-2, for the match, the Rutgers men’s soccer team could not overcome an early goal by the Owls, dropping a 1-0 decision Wednesday night under wet conditions at Yurcak Field. The loss drops RU’s record to 1-2-2 for the season. Temple improves to 2-3-0.

    Rain began to fall just prior to the beginning of the match and grew heavy at times during the first half, continuing throughout most of the game. The weather made for slippery conditions for both teams.

    Temple mustered just two shots all game, but its first goal of the contest was the difference as Tony Donatelli hit the back of the net from nearly 20 yards out to put the Owls up 1-0 in the 17th minute.

    Rutgers feverishly pursued the tying score, outshooting the Atlantic 10 school, 11-0, in the second half. RU controlled possession for most of the match, keeping Temple’s Patrick Hannigan active in goal. The Owls' keeper recorded six saves on the night. Sophomore Lubos Ancin (Burlington, NJ) made one stop in goal for Rutgers. The Scarlet Knights held a 7-1 edge on corner kicks.

    Action was spirited at times, resulting in a total of 32 combined fouls and three yellow cards.

    Rutgers will play its second BIG EAST match of the season on Sunday when the Scarlet Knights host Providence at 2 p.m.
