GAME FLOW & NOTES
- Matt DePerro (Baldwinsville, N.Y.) scored the first goal of his career in the 14th minute. Redshirt senior Brian Kennedy (Upland, Calif.) played a ball through, which DePerro was able to run onto. He then beat the keeper and slid it home to put the Friars up 1-0.
- The Friars nearly increased their lead in the final minutes of the half. Brendan Reardon (Nesconset, N.Y.) took a shot from the top of the box that forced Joey Cipicchio to make a diving save. Tiago Mendonca (Faro, Portugal) followed up with a second attempt that Cipicchio had to leap up and save.
- Early in the second half, the Bears leveled the score with a similar goal to the Friars’ first half goal. Nico Lozada played a through ball that John Vrablic was able to get past Colin Miller (Bel Air, Md.) who was streaking off his line.
- Regulation ended with Providence leading 14-7 in shots.
- In the 96th minute, Serrano was the hero for Providence. He lined up for a free kick just outside of the 18-yard box and was able to curl the ball around the wall perfectly.
- Serrano’s goal was his second of the season. His other goal also came on a free kick against North Carolina.
- All three of Providence’s wins this season have come against Rhode Island opponents. The Friars beat Rhode Island in double overtime and Bryant in regulation earlier this season.
