The wins over BSU and CGA were Pilgrim League matches and kept the Anchormen unbeaten in league play. RIC and Roger Williams are both 4-0 and had their head-to-head league match postponed due to inclement weather last weekend.


"I am really proud of our guys for rallying at the end of the year," Head Coach Jay Jones said. "They put us in a position to face Roger Williams for a championship as we are both undefeated in the league. We are looking forward to the opportunity."
