Caseres Breaks School Assists Record In NJCU Win

JERSEY CITY — Senior striker Julia Caseres (Union) continued her assault on the record books as New Jersey City University defeated Purchase College, 5-1, in the weather-delayed final game of the 2011 NJCU Liberty Cup. The contest was played at an alternate home field, Cochrane Stadium at the Caven Point Sports Complex.

Caseres netted a goal and two assists—the 27th and 28th of her three-year Gothic Knight career to become the program’s all-time leader in helpers. The school’s previous career assists mark was established by current assistant coach Katie Feehan (2004-07).


With 204 career points in 69 games, Caseres is closing in on becoming the all-time leading scorer in NCAA men’s or women’s soccer history in the state of New Jersey. Only three players are ahead of her all-time in New Jersey—current U.S. Women’s National Team captain Christie Pearce Rampone, who had 212 points in 80 games for Division I Monmouth University from 1993-96, Valerie Barnhart of Stevens Institute of Technology with 207 points (2001-04, 82 games), and Michael King of Fairleigh Dickinson University with 206 points in 91 games from 1982-85.

Junior forward Kelsey Plaskon (Clifton /Queens of Peace), senior defender Nicole Sarica (Linden), sophomore center midfielder Brianna Taylor (Linden) and senior striker Jennifer Albuja (Union City/Hoboken) also scored goals in the victory. Taylor added an assist on the first goal of the game for a three-point effort.

NJCU remains perfect on the season, improving to 5-0-0 and the Knights open a season with five consecutive wins for only the second time in school history and the first time since starting the 2008 campaign at 6-0.
