KINGSTON, R.I. -
For the second consecutive match, the Providence College men’s soccer team came back from a 1-0, first half road deficit to record a 2-1 win as they defeated Rhode Island on Friday night (Sept. 6) in the opening round of the 2013 Ocean State Soccer Classic.
With the win, the Friars improved to 3-0-0 on the year, marking their first 3-0-0 start since 1993 (4-0-0).
Rhode Island took a 1-0 lead at 19:15 when Ryan Oakley took a pass from Adam Camillo and beat Providence goalkeeper Keasel Broome (Claymont, Del.) for his first goal of the year.
But the Friars answered with back-to-back goals to close out the first half with a 2-1 lead. Freshman Dominik Machado (Attleboro, Mass.) took a free kick Jeff Kilday (Marshfield, Mass.) headed in front of the Rhode Island goal and senior Phil Ziegler (East Lyme, Conn.) finished it off for his first goal of the year to make it 1-1 at 23:16.
Then at 34:12, red shirt junior Markus Naglestad (Kristiansand, Norway) scored what proved to be the game-winning goal on a free kick for his second goal in as many games, beating URI goalkeeper Thomas Spenser with a curling effort from just outside the box.
Broome finished the game with three saves in the Friar net, while Spenser made five saves for the Rams. The Friars doubled up Rhode Island in shots, 18-9, while URI took four corner kicks to Providence’s two.
The Friars will play 20th-ranked Brown at home at 4:00 p.m. on Sunday, Sept. 8 with the 2013 Ocean State Soccer Classic title on the line. It will mark the second consecutive season the teams will meet with the Ocean State Classic title on the line. Should the two teams tie on Sunday afternoon, they would share the 2013 title. Last season, the Bears defeated the Friars, 1-0, to break Providence’s two-year winning streak in the tournament.
