KELLEY & STURDAHL COMBINE TO LEAD RIC PAST HAWKS
Anchormen Earn Second Consecutive Shutout

Providence, RI—Rhode Island College sophomore midfielder Ryan Kelley (Hope, RI) headed in a junior defender Bobby Sturdahl (Coventry, RI) free kick in the 65th minute to lead the Anchormen past Roger Williams, 1-0, in collegiate soccer action. It was Kelley’s, a transfer from the University of Maine, first collegiate goal.

 

The Anchormen improve to 2-1 overall and notched their second consecutive shutout. Senior goalkeeper Jadon Neves (Bristol, RI) made five save to even his record at 1-1. He is three shutouts away from Frank Kowalik’s ’91 all-time RIC career mark (18).

 

Roger Williams remains winless (0-3) and has not scored a goal in 270 minutes of action this season. Sophomore goalkeeper Dan Ruscigno (Wappingers Falls, NY) made four saves as his record dips to 0-2.

 

Sturdahl nearly put RIC on top by two in the 67th minute, rocketing a shot off the crossbar from 40 yards out. The Anchormen played stifling defense, allowing just five shots on net, and have not allowed a goal in the past 198 minutes of action. 

 

In upcoming action, Rhode Island College will play at M.I.T. on Saturday, Sept. 8 at 3:30 p.m.
