Kean Tops Glassboro In Tourney

Posted: November 10, 1991

Glassboro State College, the defending NCAA Division III men's soccer champion, was matched stride for stride last night by visiting Kean as the teams battled to a 1-1 tie through 90 minutes of regulation and four - yes, four - 15-minute overtime periods.

Then, suddenly, Glassboro's quest for another title was over in the first round of the NCAA tournament.

A penalty kick by Kean's Pascal Clerigo lifted the visitors to a 5-4 shootout triumph over Glassboro. Cougars goalie Kevin East had blocked the second penalty kick by Glassboro's Dan Isidor.

Kean, which earlier this season defeated Glassboro to snap the Profs' 19- game winning streak, improved to 17-3-1. Glassboro ended its season at 20-2.

Kean advances to face Trenton State next weekend at a day and site to be determined. Trenton State advanced with a 1-0 win over Montclair State last night.

Glassboro opened the scoring at 6 minutes, 54 seconds of the first half when Carl Lindmark knocked in his fifth goal of the season. Profs midfielder Scott Baker had passed to teammate Brian St. Leger, whose shot rebounded to a wide open Lindmark in front of the goal.

Kean tied the score when Fred Guiran, the New Jersey Athletic Conference's player of the year, sent freshman Chico Barra in on a breakaway. Barra's six- yard blast went into the lower left side of the net for his second goal of the year with 21:29 left in the second half.

Glassboro's only other legitimate scoring chance in regulation came when St. Leger missed an open shot in front of the goal with 12:50 left in the second half.
