NJIT Blanks Howard on Senior Day
WASHINGTON, D.C. - The Howard men's soccer team surrendered one goal in each half and fell to NJIT, 2-0, in an Atlantic Soccer Conference (ASC) match at Greene Stadium Saturday night. It was senior day for the Bison and was the last home game for Haribo Kamara Taylor, Asa Davis, Emile Innocent and Michel Okoh.
Erik Magnusson scored the first goal for NJIT (3-10-1, 2-2-0 ASC) at 23:09 on an assist from Patrick O'Driscoll. Kevin Blanco made it 2-0 for the Highlanders after sending one to the back of the net five minutes into the second half.
Howard (3-5-5, 1-1-1 ASC) led in shots, 14-19, and forced NJIT goalkeeper Josh Osit to make eight saves, but managed only a few strong scoring opportunities.
The Bison will try to get back on track next week when they travel to Florida Atlantic for an ASC match on Friday, Nov. 2 at 7pm.
