Roger Williams Scores Late Goal To Secure Victory

Providence, RIóThe Rhode Island College Anchormen were defeated, 3-2, by the Roger Williams University Hawks on Wednesday, Oct. 1 at RIC. Hawk freshman defender Rich Reddington (Naugatuck, CT) chipped in the game-winning goal off of senior forward Andrew Combraís (Portsmouth, RI) free kick with just 47 seconds remaining in the tilt.

 

RWU jumped out to an early 1-0 lead 4:43 into the first half as Combra received a pass from freshman midfielder Jamie Pereira (Naugatuck, CT) and beat Anchormen goalkeeper, freshman, Kyle Amaral (Seekonk, MA). Three minutes later, RIC would answer as sophomore forward Kyle Teixeira (Warren, RI) received a cross from fellow sophomore forward Cory Lopes (Somerset, MA) and put the ball past Hawk goalkeeper, freshman, Kevin Deegan (Seymour, CT). At the end of the half, RWU would grab the momentum and go up 2-1 when senior midfielder Jamie Danis (Upton, MA) fired a shot in off Amaralís left hand into the net. RICís hopes were kept alive in the 68th minute when senior defender Josh Nelson (Pascoag, RI) shot the ball into a crowd in front of the goal that ricocheted off a RWU defender and into the net. The game appeared to be headed for overtime until Combra sent a free kick to Reddington who shot the ball into the net for the victory.

 

Deegan gained the victory in net for RWU making six saves, while Amaral stopped four shots for RIC. With the victory, the Hawks improve their record to 10-2 while the Anchormen drop to 6-4.

 

In upcoming action, RIC will host UMass-Boston on Saturday, Oct. 4 at 1 p.m.
