  • SYRACUSE, NY – Carli Lloyd (Delran, NJ) scored with eight seconds remaining in the second overtime to give Rutgers (7-3-2) a thrilling 1-0 victory over Syracuse (7-3) at the SU Soccer Stadium on Friday, Oct. 3. The win was RU’s second straight.

    Lloyd, who registered a game-high seven shots for the Scarlet Knights, headed the ball into the back of the net off a long cross from Kim Mineo (Glen Rock, NJ) with just eight seconds showing on the clock. Rutgers outshot the Orangewomen, 16-5, and held a 7-0 advantage in corner kicks.

    In the first half, Syracuse had a key scoring opportunity slip away when Helen Fox hit the post with a shot from 25 yards out.

    RU goalkeeper Robyn Jones (Titusville, NJ) made one saves in goal, playing all 110 minutes. The shutout was Jones’ fourth of the season.

    Rutgers returns to action on Tuesday, Oct. 7 when it hosts in-state rival Princeton at Yurcak Field. Game-time is slated for 7:00 p.m.
