The New Jersey men's soccer team lost their home opener to Albright College 4-3 in overtime marking the first time the Knights have lost at home.
The loss drops the Knights to 1-1-2 on the season despite being awarded two penalty kicks, one of which tied the game with no time remaining in regulation.
The Knights fell behind early in the second half at the 51:12 mark on a header off of a free kick. Just over a minute later a Knight was ejected from the match and the Knights played a man down the rest of the way. The Knights would benefit at the 63:38 mark on a foul in the box to even the game on a penalty kick by Ramon Arce.
The Knights looked as though they might walk away with a victory when they scored at the 75:11 mark by Emmanuel Awoyinfa on a loose ball in front of the net. Albright, however, would surprise the Knights with a goal in the 87th minute and then another with only 30 seconds left to take a 3-2 lead, but a penalty kick for a hand ball in the box with no time remaining in regulation allowed the Knights to send the match into overtime after Arce converted.
But only 2 minutes into OT Albright would score to win the match.
The Knights return to action on Monday against the College of Staten Island at 4 P.M. at CSI.
