About New Jersey City University

NJCU improves to 7-8-0 overall and now stands 7-2 this year in non-conference games. NJCU, which snapped a two-game losing streak with the victory, is just two wins shy of the 1994 club record of nine victories with three games remaining. All seven of NJCU's victories this year have been shutouts. It was the first meeting between NJCU and Penn State-Berks (1-12) in women's soccer. NJCU outshot PSU-Berks, 21-8. Feehan increased her all-time program career records to 33 goals, 26 assists and 92 points, by collecting the ninth multiple-goal game of her career. Feehan increased her 2007 season totals to seven goals, 11 assists and 25 points. The 11 assists break Carine Carvalheiro's 2005 single-season record of nine. It's the second time in her career she has had at least 25 points in a season. She became the first player in program history to have eight points in a game twice in a career, and those eight points are tied for second most in single-game school history. Albuja scored a goal for the fourth consecutive game and the 11th time in 15 games overall, extending her single-season school records for goals and points. Albuja, who will have three years to chase down Feehan's program records, moved into third place in program history with 47 career points, passing Kelly Daly's mark of 46 points from 2004-05 (18 goals, 10 assists). NJCU also received a goal and an assist from freshman forward JUANITA SARRIA (Englewood, NJ/Dwight Morrow) and a goal from sophomore forward MICHELLE VASQUEZ (Harrison, NJ/Harrison). Freshman defender ASHLEY WELCH (Pennsville, NJ/Pennsville Memorial) and senior midfielder NINA CELUCH (North Haledon, NJ/Immaculate Conception (Lodi)) added single assists. NJCU freshman keeper KELLY REILLY (Pennsville, NJ/Pennsville Memorial) made two saves to extend her single-season and career shutout records to seven. Sophomore keeper Liz Menna (Harleysville, PA/Abington Friends) made one stop for PSU-Berks. For the sixth time this season, Albuja scored the first goal of a game for NJCU, netting her fourth game-winner just 4:53 into the contest. After receiving a feed from Feehan, she lofted a straight-on shot from 18 yards out over the opposing keeper's head for a 1-0 lead. At 37:59 of the period, NJCU scored an almost identical goal as Albuja notched her third assist of the year, setting up Feehan for a 2-0 lead. NJCU led 2-0 at the half. Sarria collected her third goal of the year at 65:01 off a feed from Welch, who picked up her fourth assist, as Sarria stuck a shot under the crossbar from 12 yards out in the middle of the box. Feehan made it a 4-0 advantage at 67:58. Sarria, who earned her first career assist, found Feehan open for a 15-yard shot, which she bent into the upper right corner. Vasquez tallied her fourth goal of the year at 81:40 as Feehan delivered a beautiful thru ball into the right side of the box near the penalty mark. Vasquez pounded a shot inside the left post for a 5-0 lead. Feehan capped the scoring at 87:19 when she received a pass from Celuch 10 yards out on the right side and bent a shot across the goalmouth inside the left post to complete the hat trick. The assist was Celuch's first point of the season. NJCU returns to action on Wednesday, October 17 when it hosts Rowan University in a New Jersey Athletic Conference at 3:30 p.m. at the Robert L. McNulty Memorial Soccer Field. It is a make-up of a September 22 postponement.
