HILLSIDE – Sophomore Tiago Goetzke scored the game-winning goal with less than 10 minutes remaining to lift the Kean University men’s soccer team to a 2-1 come-from-behind victory over 23rd ranked York College (Pa.) in non-conference action on Wednesday afternoon.
Goetzke took a long pass from sophomore Stephen Moll for the breakaway goal with 9:13 left in the contest to lift the Cougars (3-2-1).
The Spartans (4-2) took a 1-0 lead in the first half when the senior Lucas Emil’s direct kick from just outside the top of the box sailed past the Kean defense untouched for the lead in the 21st minute.
The score remained that way until the second half when the Cougars took advantage of their own corner kick in the game, as sophomore Anthony Crouchelli knocked in the goal off the pass from sophomore Michael Custidiano in the 51st minute.
Rookie Tyler Callahan made six saves in goal for the Cougars, while sophomore Jesse Derksen stopped one shot.
Kean returns to action on Saturday, September 18, when they host Richard Stockton College in the New Jersey Athletic Conference opener. Game time is set for 1 p.m.
