Teixeira’s Two Give Anchormen Victory

Providence, RI—The Rhode Island College Anchormen defeated the Salem State College Vikings, 2-1, on Wednesday, Sept. 24 at RIC. Anchorman sophomore forward Kyle Teixeira (Warren, RI) scored both RIC goals, including his fourth game-winner this season, to give the home team the victory.

 

RIC jumped out to an early 1-0 lead 8:24 in the first half as Teixeira received a great one-touch pass from sophomore forward Cory Lopes (Somerset, MA) and beat Viking goalkeeper, sophomore Tim Doucette (Boxford, MA), for the goal. Salem State however answered right back ten minutes later when junior Colbran Strzinski (Albuquerque, NM) scored on a 25-yard free kick. The Anchormen would close out the first half in style as senior midfielder Brian Shimmel (Cumberland, RI), with just 14 seconds remaining, sent a free-kick from midfield into the box and Teixeira headed the ball past Doucette for his second goal of the game and tenth of the season. Salem State forced the tempo of play in the second half but RIC’s defense kept the Vikings at bay.

 

Gaining the victory in net for RIC was junior Jason Nelson (Pascoag, RI) who made five saves on the afternoon. Doucette stopped 11 shots for Salem State. With the victory, the Anchormen improve their record to 5-3 while the Vikings drop to 1-4.

 

In upcoming action, RIC will play at the University of Southern Maine on Saturday, Sept. 27 at 1 p.m.
