Kean Athletics

Montclair, N.J. (11/1/08) - Freshman Symone Seldon (Trenton, N.J.) netted the game-winner just over five minutes into the match on a breakaway as #4 Montclair State University defeated #5 Kean University, 2-0, Saturday evening in the first-round of the New Jersey Athletic Conference (NJAC) Tournament. In a highly offensive and physical affair, MSU outshot the Cougars, 18-14, while Kean held a slight 4-3 edge in corner opportunities.

Kean (11-7) had their opportunities as freshman Danielle Esposito (Holmdel, N.J.) had five shots, including four on goal.

MSU (10-9-1) put the game away in the 77th minute as sophomore Christyn Scillieri (Wayne, N.J.) took a feed from Rachel Senyszyn (Succasunna, N.J.).

The Cougars had previously defeated the Red Hawks by a score of 1-0 exactly one month ago, but it was MSU who found the back of the net this evening.

Sophomore keeper Leandra Russo (Galloway, N.J.) stopped eight saves on the night in the loss.
