HOW IT HAPPENED
The two teams battled through a
scoreless first half with Worcester State holding a 6-3 advantage in
shots for the stanza.
RIC got on the board in the 54th
when junior midfielder Dennis Vazquez (Providence, RI) played
a through ball to Paiz, who put a shot across the goal line and into
the corner of the net to put the Anchormen up, 1-0.
That would be all the scoring for
the evening as RIC outshot Worcester State by a 7-6 margin in the
second half en route to the 1-0 victory.
Freshman Charlie Tashjian (West
Warwick, RI) (6-4-1) made three saves for RIC to earn his second
straight shutout, while sophomore Henri Guilmette (Franklin, MA)
(2-2) recorded three stops in the loss for Worcester State.
