Karim’s career-high 12 saves fails to lift Syracuse over Rutgers
Alim Karim did all he could for the Syracuse men’s soccer team to earn its first Big East win. It wasn’t enough.
Karim made 12 saves, but SU scored just once as the Orangemen tied No. 13 Rutgers, 1-1, last night.
Syracuse (2-6-5, 0-3-4 Big East) tied a Top 25 team for the second time in four games, but still remains in last place in the Big East.
Against Rutgers (7-3-2, 4-1-2), Syracuse struck first. Seven minutes in, forward Kirk Johnson fed a pass to freshman Frank Bruno, who lobbed a shot over the head of Lubos Ancin, RU’s goalie.
Seventy minutes later, Rutgers tied the game when Josh Gros tapped in the game-tying goal.
The game was SU’s seventh overtime contest of the season. Six of those have gone to double overtime.
