Men's Soccer vs. Seton Hall Goals

Box Score

SOUTH ORANGE, N.J. (8/31/12) - Sophomore Julian Griggs scored the game winner and freshman Thomas Sanner had assists on both goals at the Princeton men's soccer team defeated Seton Hall 2-1 in the season opener on Friday, Aug. 31 at Carroll Field.

Senior Matt Sanner put the Tigers on the scoreboard early, scoring just 7:28 into the game, with his brother assisting. Thomas Sanner started the play by streaking down the right flank and sending a cross into the box to Matt Sanner who beat goalkeeper Michael Kuzan on the right side.

Myles McGinley nearly scored four minutes earlier when he launched a free kick after Konrad Piewa was given a yellow card just outside the 18-yard box. Kuzan made the save but couldn't on the Tigers' next chance.

Max Garcia knotted the game at 1-1 just before the close of the half in the 43rd minutes. Piewa led up the left side and dished off to Garcia who blasted a quick shot into the far corner past goalkeeper Max Gallin. Gallin had thwarted Garcia just one minute prior when he punched a free kick up over the cross bar and out of play.

The game winner came at 50th minute when Thomas Sanner once again sent a great ball into the box. This time it was Griggs that was there to one time it into the net.

Seton Hall outshot Princeton 15-9 and had one more corner kick, 6-5. It was also called for two more offsides than Princeton, 3-1.

Gallin earned his first win of the season in goal, making nine saves.

Kuzan stopped five for the Pirates who drop to 1-2 on the season.

Princeton faces St. John's on Wednesday, Sept. 5 at 8 p.m.
