OLD WESTBURY, N.Y. – Senior striker Julia Caseres (Union) had the first two goals of the game and added an assist to become the all-time leading scorer among men or women in New Jersey collegiate soccer history as New Jersey City University remained perfect with a 4-0 non-conference victory over SUNY-Old Westbury on the road on Sunday.
Caseres entered the game with 211 career points, and with the five-point effort, increased her four-year totals to 88 goals and 40 assists for 216 points between NJCU (2009-11) and Rutgers-Newark (2008) in 72 games. Caseres eclipses 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—on the all-time scoring charts among men’s or women’s collegiate Division I, II or III players in the history of New Jersey soccer. Caseres also extended her NJCU program record with her 16th game-winner in three seasons.
Senior left defender Nicole Sarica (Linden) had a team save for the Knights to help preserve the shutout.
