It was not only a NCAA Division III soccer game. It was played more than a game. The Men’s Soccer Team played against City College of New York at the MSU Soccer Park on the evening of Monday, September 15th.
The game was also part of the series called Playing for Charity, on which throughout the year each sports team will host one charity game and proceeds from the contest will be donated to that team’s respective cause.
The game started with chances for both sides but quickly at a corner kick taken by freshman forward Kyle Goodwin, freshman midfielder Jake Seaman, scored the first goal at the 2nd minute.
The Monday soccer game’s proceeds went to The Cure Starts Now, an Ohio-based non-profit organization founded in 2007 which goal is to work on groundbreaking research and treatments for pediatric child cancer. We talked to the Pinckney Family from Oakland, NJ, one of many families who are currently taking part of the foundation’s mission.
The hard work for the Red Hawks was paid off after 66 minutes of game when Kyle Goodwin scored two goals in three minutes, and freshman forward James Buonavita scored twice, at the 76th minute with this great 19-yard shot, and then at the 82th minute with this superb 25-yard free kick that is worth it to watch it again. With an additional goal by senior midfielder Jesse Shea at the 86th minute, the Red Hawks were back to track with a convincing 6-0 that was worthy for a great cause.
