Edison, NJ - In their season opener, the Brookdale men's soccer team stepped onto the field starting nine freshmen. Despite 10 shots and five corner kicks, the Blues were unable to find the back of the net at Middlesex County College, losing 3-0.
Freshman forward Ryan Gannon had a stellar performance on defense winning one on one battles and starting the counterattack with his precise passing. The Blue Colts struck in the first half, scoring on a laser direct kick. Middlesex then capped off the scoring with a penalty kick and a Brookdale own goal during the second half of play.
