Giusfredi, the long-range bomber
September 26th, 2007 8AM

MOST READ


[VIDEO] One of the longest goals of the season came last Monday night when Seton Hall's Eliseo Giusfredi scored off the kickoff from 60 yards to give Seton Hall a 4-3 win over New Jersey rival Princeton.

After Princeton tied the game on a goal by Kyle McHugh, Seton Hall freshman Andrew Welker put the ball in play from midfield to Giusfredi, who rocketed a 60-yard shot just between the cross bar and the outstretched arms of the leaping Tiger goalie to put SHU back ahead for good and hand Princeton its fourth straight loss.

The five seconds between goals tied the NCAA Division I record for second shortest amount of time between goals by opposing teams.  The record is three seconds in a 1998 game between UC Santa Barbara and UCLA.

Giusfredi, a junior from Paterson, N.J., is considered a pro prospect and is reported to be considering turning pro after the 2007 season. He leads the 3-5-0 Pirates with five goals in eight games.
