Pytlar Goal Propels No. 17 Men's Soccer Over TCNJ, 1-0

Ewing, NJ (9/26/09) - Sophomore midfielder Mike Pytlar (Califon, NJ / West Morris) scored with 4:16 remaining in the game as No. 17 Montclair State edged The College of New Jersey, 1-0 to remain unbeaten this season. The Red Hawks improve to 8-0-1 with the victory, 3-0 in the NJAC. 

After a Red Hawk shot was deflected out of bounds, Sean Tyree (Somerset, NJ / South Brunswick) sent a corner kick to the far post. The ball was headed down in front of the goal mouth, and after a scramble, found the right foot of Pytlar who deposited the game-winner.

Freshman Adam Friedman (Chester, NJ/West Morris Menham) had three saves for the Lions, while Teddy Ritter (Belford, NJ/Middletown North) needed only three stops to earn his eighth win of the season.

Montclair State will host conference foe Kean University on Wednesday evening at 7 p.m. and attempt to set an NCAA record by winning their 41st consecutive home match.
