How It Happened
Providence got on the board first when sophomore Adam Camillo set classmate Ryan Oakley up for his first career goal at the 19:15 mark. However, the lead was short lived a pair of Rhode Island fouls led to the game-tying goal as well as the eventual game-winner. Phil Ziegler first found the back of the net in the 24th minute, cleaning up a Jeff Kilday header off a service into the box by Dominik Machado. Just 11 minutes later, Markus Naglestad put the Friars on top for good when he curled a set piece around the near post for the 2-1 advantage.

Inside the Box Score

  • Providence held an 18-9 advantage in shots. The PC outshot URI 12-3 in the first half, but attempts were an even 6-6 in the second.
  • Rhody out-cornered the Providence, 4-2. The Rams had two corners in each half while both of PC's came in the second frame. Rhode Island committed 14 fouls to Providence's 11. Both PC goals were the direct result of URI fouls committed just outside the 18-yard box.

  • Freshman Asa Sohn earned his first career start and logged 60 minutes on the pitch. Overall, Rhody started three freshmen, five sophomores and three juniors. 
  • The loss drops URI to 28-9-4 in the all-time series with Providence. The Friars have now won each of the last three meetings between the two squads.
