  • BLACKSBURG, VA – Sophomore Kim Brandao (Rahway, NJ) scored in the 64th minute to lift the Rutgers women’s soccer team (9-4-4) to a 1-0 victory at Virginia Tech (8-8) Oct. 19 in Blacksburg, VA, in a BIG EAST Conference cross-divisional match.

    Brandao headed in Zoe Avner’s (Paris, France) corner kick for her first collegiate goal to give the Scarlet Knights the victory. Freshman Robyn Jones (Titusville, NJ) made three saves for the win (7-4-4), her seventh shutout of the year.

    “Kim has come forward on the majority of our set pieces because she is very good in the air,” fourth-year head coach Glenn Crooks explained. “On this play she went to the near post, and Zoe sent a great ball to the post. Kim timed it perfectly and there was no chance for the keeper to make the save.”

    Junior All-American Carli Lloyd (Delran, NJ) became Rutgers’ all-time career shots leader (219) in the match. Rutgers outshot the Hokies 9-7 and drew three more corners (4-1). Jones moved into a tie for eighth place in single-season shutouts and sole possession of seventh place on the career chart.

    Rutgers was ranked fifth by the National Soccer Coaches Association of America (NSCAA) and tied for seventh by Soccerbuzz in the Mid-Atlantic Region this week (Oct. 13).

    Rutgers will face No. 2 Notre Dame Friday, Oct. 24, at 7:00 p.m. in a BIG EAST Conference Mid-Atlantic Division match.
