Flower City Men’s Soccer Tournament

Third Place Game

At University of Rochester’s Edwin Fauver Stadium


SUNY Oswego 3, Rhode Island College 2:


            Rochester, New York (Sept. 4, 2005) – Senior Scott Brown (Fulton, NY/G. Ray Bodley) headed in a free kick from Paul Palucci (Syracuse, NY/Liverpool) with 8:50 to play to snap a 2-2 tie and give SUNY Oswego a 3-2 victory over Rhode Island College.


           Brown’s game winner gave the Lakers (1-1) undisputed possession of third place in the Flower City Men’s Soccer Tournament at Edwin Fauver Stadium on the campus of the University of Rochester. Rhode Island College is 0-2.


            It was an entertaining game, marked by aggressive play on both ends and four yellow cards – two to each side.


            Brown had one goal and figured in Oswego’s first tally – an own goal six minutes into the second half. Dave Stewart (Burnaby British Columbia/Burnaby North) scored the second Oswego goal, assisted by Jason Popovich (Baldwinsville, NY/C.W. Baker).


            Kyle Teixeira (Warren, RI/Mt. Hope) scored one goal for Rhode Island College and assisted on the second – scored by Tyrell Burgess (Smiths, Bermuda/Wilbraham & Monson). Texieira moved within two points of tying the RIC career point scoring record of 147.


            Oswego goalkeeper Greg Keenan (Warsaw, NY/Warsaw Central) had seven saves. RIC’s Jadon Neves (Warren, RI/Mt. Hope) made one save. Rhode Island outshot Oswego, 22-9.


            Teixeira opened the scoring at 18:40. James Nigrelli played a pass upfield that found Teixeira in stride behind the defense and he quickly left-footed the ball into the lower right hand corner of the net as Keenan charged off the line.


            Oswego got even at 51:35. Brown played a long ball from right wing into the center of the box. No one could control it and the ball deflected off an RIC defender into the unguarded net.


            Burgess snapped the 1-1 tie at 71:02. Teixeira intercepted a poor clearance on left wing and dribbled into the box. He crossed the ball to Burgess who fired it into the low left hand corner.


            At 72:33, Popovich centered the ball from right wing and it landed at the foot of Stewart who banged an eight-yarder under Neves to equalize.
