Teaneck, New Jersey- Seton Hall did it again on the road, knocking out Fairleigh Dickinson 1-0 on Friday night. Quenzi Huermann (Vannes, France) found the back of the net in the 11e minute to deliver the only count of the match. The Pirates played with 10 men from 48e minute, like Luca Dahn (Kahl, Germany) was sent off after receiving his second yellow card of the night.
How did it happen
The two teams traded possession to open the game, but Seton Hall was able to launch a counterattack. After Mattias Almeida Sundell (Sweden) forced an FDU turnover, he pushed it back for JP Marin (Briarwood, NY) who sent a pass down. Huerman caught the ball, moved to his left and fired a shot past the goalkeeper to give Seton Hall a 1-0 lead.

Fairleigh Dickinson’s best chance of the first half came in the 30e minute, where Joshua Ferreira deflected a corner on the frame. Andrea Borg (Sliema, Malta) was in the right place at the right time as he cleared the alleged equalizer out of harm’s way.
Just three minutes into the second half, Dahn received his second yellow card of the night, forcing the Pirates to play a man for the final 42 minutes of the game. However, Seton Hall was undeterred, digging his heels in defensively to deny an FDU equalizer.
