BROOKLYN HEIGHTS, N.Y. — Junior midfielder Sami Gliguem netted two goals and recorded one assist in his first game as with St. Francis Terri in a 3-1 victory over George Washington University Friday night.
The win, which is a response to their 2-1 defeat to the same team last season, marked the Terriers’ (2-1) second consecutive home win.
Gliguem’s goals came in the 40th and 44th minute with the second being assisted by his roommate Kieran Young on a corner kick.
“Everyone on the team believes in me, it makes me work,” a smiling Gliguem said. “The first thing I did when I came in the game was stupidly injure myself – but I’m fine. It’s good to play.”
The Colonials showed some life late in the game as Dylan Lightbourn knocked in a goal in the 82nd minute.
The Terriers put the final nail in the coffin with an empty-net goal served up by the Gilguem, who found his speedy classmate Ali Tounkara for his first goal this season.
“I think we’re looking better and better every game,” Gliguem said. “I was so excited to score … it was great for the team and good for me.”
The Terriers outshot the Colonials 11-2.
