ANCHORMEN BLANK BEARS, 2-0
Nigrelli Nets Game Winner

Providence, RIóThe Rhode Island College menís soccer team defeated Bridgewater State College, 2-0, this afternoon at the Rhode Island College Soccer Field. Senior midfielder James Nigrelli (Ashaway, RI) registered the decisive goal as the Anchormen raise their overall record to 5-3. 

 

Rhode Island College cracked the scoring column in the 37th minute, when Nigrelli headed in a corner kick from senior midfielder Derek Rocha (Fall River, MA). It was Nigrelliís first marker of the campaign, while Rocha handed out his first helper. Despite holding an 11-2 advantage in shots, the Anchormen headed into the intermission with just a one-goal lead.

 

That would be all Rhode Island College would need as the Anchormen limited Bridgewater State (1-4-1) to just 11 shots on the afternoon. Sophomore goalkeeper Dereck Loisel (Warwick, RI) made seven saves to earn his second shutout and third victory of the season. 

 

In the 53rd minute, Rhode Island College added an insurance goal, when sophomore midfielder Ryan Kelley (Hope, RI) converted off a crossing pass from freshman Miguel Sagastume (Providence, RI). Kelley recorded his team-leading fifth marker of the season, including his fourth tally in the past three matches. Sagastume was credited with his second assist on the campaign.

 

Between the pipes for the Bears, senior goalkeeper Drew Pontbriand (Fairhaven, MA) turned back five Anchormen offerings as his record slips to 1-3.

 

Rhode Island College returns to action on Sept. 22, when the Anchormen host Little East Conference rival UMass Dartmouth (5-0) at 12 p.m. Bridgewater State will also be in action on Sept. 22, when the Bears open their MASCAC circuit at Massachusetts Maritime at 1 p.m.
