Barbie Day: Rutgers women’s soccer host FDU on Monday

On Monday, Rutgers women’s soccer (1-1-1) will host Fairleigh Dickinson University (0-3) as they prepare for their third promotional event of the 2023 season. For their third promotion of the 2023 season, Rutgers will hold Barbie Day for all fans attending their game on Monday.

Fans are encouraged to bring their favorite Barbie doll and cheer on the Rutgers women’s soccer team.

The Scarlet Knights are coming off a 1-1 draw last week after giving up an early lead to NC State (1-0-2) with just 2:25 left in the contest. The Scarlet Knights captured the disappointing draw after leading most of the game on the road. Still, it was not a bad result given that NC State was an NCAA Tournament team last year.

In the United Soccer Coaches Top 25 Poll, the Wolfpack received multiple votes this season and participated in the 2022 NCAA Tournament last year.  

Rutgers Allison Lowrey scored her No. 17 career goal against NC State, but her efforts weren’t enough to capture the Scarlet Knights’ victory. Rutgers led in shot attempts (13-11) and shots on goal (4-3), but the Scarlet Knights did not place a shot on target in the second half.

Rutgers return home with a 1-1 record at Yurack Field. The Scarlet Knights will look to pick up a victory as they prepare to face off against the 2022 NEC Tournament champions at 5 p.m. on Monday.
