The men’s soccer team fell 4-3 to NJIT Saturday night in a nail-biting, back-and-forth game.

The first goal of the night was by Lipscomb freshman Honore Kalala. This was Kalala’s first career goal and marked the beginning of a suspense-filled night.

With 50 minutes remaining in the game, the Bisons (3-8-1, 1-3 ASUN) led 2-1. However, this marked the calm before the storm .

NJIT scored back-to-back goals in less than 30 seconds by Diego Ferreira and Rene White. During the 85th minute, Lipscomb tied the game with a long-distance set-up from senior Austin Eager to sophomore Louis Robinson.

Two minutes later, the tie turned into a loss for Lipscomb as NJIT player Joao Costa scored the game-winning play.

Lipscomb will play North Florida next Saturday at the Lipscomb Soccer Complex. It will be the last home game before the ASUN Championships.
