Keasel Broome and the Friars turned in their first clean sheet of the season.
Sept. 14, 2013
PROVIDENCE, R.I. -
The Providence College men's soccer team played to a 0-0 tie with Northeastern on Saturday afternoon at Glay Field to remain unbeaten on the season at 4-0-2. With the tie, the Huskies move to 2-1-2 on the season.
Red-shirt junior goalkeeper Keasel Broome (Claymont, Del.) made three saves in the Friar net, while his counterpart in the Northeastern goal, Dylan Faber, made four saves. It marked Broome's first shutout of the season and the third of his Friar career.
In the annual nonconference showdown between the two teams, the squads played a physical match that saw the Friars take 16 shots to Northeastern's 12, while Providence also had a slight edge in corner kicks, 4-3.
Providence's best first-half scoring chance came at 44:03 when a ball fell to freshman Julian Gressel (Neustadt an der Aisch, Germany) at the corner of the box, but his shot flashed just wide of the far upper corner.
In the second half, the Friars turned up the offensive pressure but could not find the back of the net. With just under three minutes to play in regulation, red-shirt junior Markus Naglestad (Kristiansand, Norway) curled a free kick toward the goal that junior Fabio Machado (Santa Catarina, Brazil) headed on frame but Faber made one of his four saves on the play.
With the tie, Providence has opened the season on a six-match unbeaten streak for the first time since 2008 (3-0-3).
Providence's next game will be at 7:00 p.m. on Friday, Sept. 20 at Boston University.
