East Providence, R.I. – Senior Kyle Teixeira (Warren, R.I.) scored a hat-trick and added an assist as Rhode Island College posted a 5-0 victory against Johnson & Wales University in a non-conference contest at Pierce Stadium on Wednesday evening.

Rhode Island College got on the board first when senior James Lynch (
Jamestown, R.I.) headed in a pass from Teixeira to give the visiting Anchormen a 1-0 lead at the 13:45 mark.  Rhode Island College took a 1-0 lead into halftime.

RIC extended their lead early in the second half when Teixeira notched the first of his three goals on the evening at the 45:54 mark.  He then put in a pass from freshman Tyrell Burgess (Smiths,
Bermuda) at the 51:22 mark to give Rhode Island College the 3-0 advantage.  Teixeira then tallied his third goal of the dean, an unassisted tally at the 59:25 mark to take the 4-0 lead.  The Anchormen wrapped up the scoring for the evening on a goal from freshman Matt Gesvaldi (North Smithfield, R.I.) at 84:25 and then cruised to the 5-0 victory.

Sophomore Sean Gonsalves (
Somerset, Mass.) made two saves in the win for Rhode Island while senior Stephane Ost (Maynard, Mass.) had three stops in the setback for Johnson & Wales.
