The two teams battled back and forth throughout the first half
with RIC outshooting JWU by a 4-3 margin. Neither team could
capitalize, however, as the game headed in halftime in a scoreless
RIC got on the board in the 65th
minute when senior forward Komla Dogbey (Providence, RI) was
taken down in the box. Vazquez then converted the ensuing penalty

With just under four minutes left

The two teams played through a pair

Sophomore Charlie Tashjian (West
Warwick, RI) (7-6-2) recorded four stops for RIC, while junior
Austin Eugenio (New Bedford, MA) (1-0-1) had three saves for
