Joergan Oland


Men’s Soccer

Oland’s heroics continued, as the junior delivered a game-tying goal for a third consecutive game, this time in the 87th minute to help the 12th-ranked Rams draw with Marist. The goal, assisted by Paul Makaj, helped Fordham surivive a nitty gritty, four-yellow-card contest.

Alex sparked Fordham’s one-point win at the NYIT Invitational this past weekend, finishing the 5K in 18:05.98 for her first career win. The freshman has made an immediate impact, claiming the Rams first weekly honor of the season.
