Hernandez & Genereux Notch Goal & Assist Apiece

Providence, RIóRhode Island College defeated M.I.T., 4-1, in the Anchormenís home opener on Saturday afternoon. RIC ups its record to 2-0, while M.I.T. suffers its first loss of the 2006 campaign and falls to 2-1.

 

Rhode Island College junior forward Jimmy Hernandez (Providence, RI) headed in a junior midfielder Julian Montoya (North Providence, RI) crossing pass to open the dayís scoring in the 17th minute. Junior forward Kyle Genereux (Harrisville, RI) converted an Engineer turnover to up the Anchormenís lead to 2-0 in the 23rd minute. M.I.T. got on the board in the 39th minute as senior forward Ryan Sheffler (Beaumont, TX) scored on a penalty kick.

 

The Anchormen kept up the offensive pressure in the second half as Hernandez found sophomore midfielder Brandon Migliore (Coventry, RI) coming down the middle of the box with a crisp pass that was converted into RICís third goal of the day in the 60th minute. Junior midfielder Derek Rocha (Fall River, MA) sealed the win with the clubís fourth goal in the 68th minute, scoring on a Genereux pass.
