PLAYER OF THE WEEK
Rutgers’ Kene Eze
Rutgers junior forward Kene Eze has been named the BigAppleSoccer.com Men’s College Player of the Week for the week ending October 28.
Eze scored two goals, including the game-winner in extratime, as Rutgers defeated Villanova, 3-2, in a Big East game at Yurcak Field on Wednesday night.
Sophomore defender Thomas O’Rourke brought the ball down the field, crossing a pass to Eze off the end line. He headed the shot into the bottom left of the net for his fourth game-winning goal of the season in the 98th minute.
Eze put the Scarlet Knights up 2-1 in the 87th minute. Coming from 18 yards on the left side, Eze beat two defenders and buried a shot into the upper portion of the net.
