BOCA RATON, Fla. – Senior Mamadou Guirassy tied the NJIT DI career goals record after striking twice in a 2-0 win at Florida Atlantic Sunday.
NJIT (3-0-1) kept its winning streak alive and remains the lone team in the ASUN undefeated.
Guirassy’s two goals gives the senior forward five goals in four games this season and 15 for his career, which tied the NJIT DI career goals record with former teammate Joshua Mercer (’15).
Goalkeeper Victor Pujades recorded another shutout, bringing his career total to 10. Pujades broke the DI single season record last season tallying seven and has accumulated three shutouts in four matches.
Daniel Ragoo made five saves for the Owls.
FAU (0-3) outshot the Highlanders, 14-10, but NJIT posted more shots on goal, 7-4.
The Highlanders struck in the 71st minute when Guirassy received a pass from freshman Carlos Garcia from the end line, playing the ball off his chest and volleying the ball into upper left corner of the goal.
With five seconds left in regulation, Guirassy scored again, his second consecutive game with two goals, off a pass from senior Danny Cordeiro.
NJIT will head back north to take on LIU Brooklyn in Brooklyn, N.Y. Sept. 6 at 6 p.m.
