    PISCATAWAY, N.J. — A second-half goal by Rutgers in the 62nd minute proved to be enough to break up the even stalemate as the Scarlet Knights earned a 1-0 win over Houston Soccer Thursday evening in American Athletic Conference play.

    The Cougars dropped their third straight one-goal game to fall to 1-7-3 overall and 0-5 in league play, while Rutgers improved to 10-2-1 and 3-1 in conference action.

    The two programs matched each other in the corner kick category with three each and played to a 0-0 draw in the opening 45 minutes. The first half saw the Cougars fire off five shots to Rutgers’ 14.

    Houston’s defense held the Scarlet Knights to just three shots in the final 45 minutes of action, but Rutgers would strike in the 62nd minute on a ball that found the back of the net off the foot of Stephanie Scholz from Jennifer Andresen.

    That goal proved enough down the stretch despite a valiant effort by the Houston offense.

    The Cougars were led in shots by senior Kylie Cook with two shots, one landing on goal while junior Kayla Walker fired off a shot on goal off the bench.

    Senior goalkeeper Cami Koski tallied four saves in the 90-minute effort, but would be tagged with the loss in goal. Her counterpart across the field Jessica Janosz recorded a shutout with two saves for the win to improve to 10-2-1.

    POSTGAME QUOTE
    Head Coach Chris Pfau

    “That was a great game from start to end from all of our players. We are starting to do some very nice things and playing some good soccer.  We created a few good chances and one or two good opportunities at the end to tie the game. I’m very proud of this team!”
