TEANECK, N.J. — Sophomore defender Faouzi Taieb scored in the 73rd minute to give St. Francis Brooklyn a 1-0 Northeast Conference victory against Fairleigh Dickinson University Sunday evening.

The Terriers, who have won two straight, improved to 7-4 overall and 1-0 in the league.

“I’m proud of the boys,” head coach Tom Giovatto said. “It was a great result tonight. We had a great week of practice and it showed on the field.”

Taieb headed in the lone goal of the game following a throw-in by senior midfielder Leo Folla. It was the second game-winner of the season for Taieb. He is tied for the team lead with three goals.

St. Francis Brooklyn senior goalkeeper Roberto Bazzichetto made six saves.

FDU (6-4-1), which came into the week receiving Top-20 votes, dropped to 0-2 in the conference after losing to Bryant Friday evening.

St. Francis Brooklyn will host Sacred Heart University at Brooklyn Bridge Park Friday at 7 p.m.
