NEW YORK, N.Y. -
The men's soccer team tied Columbia, 1-1, in the first ever meeting between the two teams at the Columbia Soccer Complex on Tuesday night. After falling behind in the first half, red shirt junior Wilder Arboleda (Pawtucket, R.I.) tied the game at 1-1 in the 73rd minute. With the tie, Providence snapped a three-game losing skid and moved to 2-7-2 (0-3-0 BIG EAST) on the year, while Columbia now stands at 3-6-2 (1-1-0 Ivy League).
The Lions took a 1-0 lead on a Nick Scott goal scored off a feed from Kofi Agyapong in the 15th minute. The Friars fought back in the second half and Arboleda tied the game at 1-1 when he converted a pass from sophomore Marcos Ugarte (Providence, R.I.) at the near post for his third goal of the year at 73:27. It marked Ugarte's second assist and fourth point of the season.
Even with offenses pushing forward - Providence was whistled for offsides seven times and Columbia eight - neither squad could then break the tie.
Friar red shirt sophomore goalkeeper Keasel Broome (Claymont, Del.) made two saves. In the Columbia goal, Michael Attal had a busy night in net as the Providence attack forced Attal to make nine saves in order to preserve the tie, including a save in the second overtime stanza.
For the game, Providence out shot the Lions, 18-6, and took eight corner kicks to the Lions' three. Arboleda led the team with five shots, including a game-high three on net.
The Friars return to BIG EAST Blue Division play at 1:00 p.m. on Saturday, Oct. 13 when they host Pittsburgh.
