BURGESS AND GONSALVES HELP

RIC DOWN UMASS DARTMOUTH

Providence, RI—Rhode Island College freshman forward Tyrell Burgess (Smiths, Bermuda) scored what proved to be the game-winning goal with eight seconds left in the first half and sophomore goalkeeper Sean Gonsalves (Somerset, MA) made two saves to notch his third consecutive shutout as the Anchormen defeated Little East Conference rival UMass Dartmouth, 2-0, in collegiate men’s soccer action.

 

Burgess took a direct kick after a UMD foul and buried a shot from 20 yards out to give RIC a lead that it would never relinquish. The Anchormen peppered UMD sophomore goalkeeper Kyle Fossey (Townsend, MA) all day as RIC outshot the Corsairs, 34-5. RIC senior forward Kyle Teixeira (Warren, RI) scored his team-leading 11th goal of the season, chipping a shot past Fossey in the 62nd minute. RIC junior midfielder Nic Rossi (North Kingstown, RI) led all players with eight shots.

 

Gonsalves is 3-0 on the season, with each of his wins coming by way of shutout. Fossey made ten saves as his record dips to 0-4. RIC junior midfielder Holman Giraldo (Pawtucket, RI) assisted on Teixeira’s goal.

 

In upcoming action, RIC will play at Newbury on Wednesday, Oct. 5 at 3:30 p.m. UMD will host Mass. Maritime on Tuesday, Oct. 4 at 3:30 p.m.
