TEIXEIRA’S HAT TRICK LEADS RIC TO VICTORY

Providence, RI—Junior forward Kyle Teixeira (Warren, RI) scored three goals within a ten minute span in the first half to lead Rhode Island College to a, 6-1, victory over visiting Rivier College in collegiate men’s soccer action. The Anchormen improve to 1-1 overall, while the loss drops the Raiders to 0-1.

 

RIC kept up the offensive pressure all game, outshooting Rivier 35-2 on the day. Also finding the net for the Anchormen were sophomore Holman Giraldo (Pawtucket, RI), junior Chris Cunha (East Providence, RI) and freshman Kevin Patterson (Narragansett, RI). Patterson’s tally was his first as a collegian. Sophomore Brian Purcell (Barrington, RI) chipped in with two assists and freshman James Nigrelli (Ashaway, RI) had one helper.
