Competing in the same town on the same night for the first time in their brief histories, both the New York and New Jersey men's soccer teams suffered 1-0 defeats Tuesday night.

The New Jersey squad competed first against perennial powerhouse Drew University in Madison, NJ, and kept the match tight throughout. A late first half goal by the Rangers would make all the difference despite quality opportunities for the Knights to tie in the first and second halves. The loss dropped the team to 2-7 on the season.

The New York squad's three game winning streak ended at FDU-Florham across the street from the Drew-Berkeley match.

The Devils scored with a well placed header with 14 minutes to play after a neat counter-attack. Berkeley started lethargically after a ten day layoff due to their postponed match at NJCU, and never got into full gear. Still, the Knights had their chances both before and after the lone goal of the game, but failed to convert any of them.

Camillo Montes had another brilliant night in the New York net, making three fantastic stops to keep the score at 0-0. The loss dropped the team to 4-5 on the season.
