NEWARK – The Kean University men’s soccer team dropped their second contest by falling to New York University, 2-1, Monday evening in non-conference action.
Kean (6-4-1) scored their only goal of the match as Luiz Campos scored on a penalty kick late in the first half to tie things up at one all. But the Violets took the lead off a header in the 55th minute and held on for the 2-1 win.
Keeper Alfredo Oquendo had five saves in just under 83 minutes of action.
Kean returns to their rigorous week as they head back to Rutgers-Newark on Wednesday in a rescheduled NJAC matchup.
