The NJIT men's soccer team continued its undefeated streak with a 3-0 shutout victory over St. Francis Brooklyn Saturday afternoon.
NJIT extended its winning streak, improving to 5-0-1 in 2017, marking the best start in program history since 1975, when the Highlanders started the season 9-0. Saturday also marked the Highlanders second all-time win against the Terriers (the last time NJIT defeated St. Francis Brooklyn was in 2015 with a 3-2 win over the then #22-ranked team).
Leading the Highlanders (5-0-1) was senior forwad Mamadou Guirassy, who posted a career-best five points on two goals and an assist.
The senior broke the NJIT D1 single season record with his eighth goal of the season and tied his own record for points in a season holding 17 points after six games.
Guirassy also broke the NJIT D1 record for career points, surpassing former teammate Marko Drljic ('14), accumulating 42 points. To add onto his accolades, the senior is also the national leading scorer with his eight goals.
