PROVIDENCE, R.I. - The Providence College men's soccer team will travel to Smithfield, R.I. to take on Bryant University in first-round action of the Ocean State Soccer Classic. Brown University will play the University of Rhode Island on Friday in Providence in the other match-up of this year's classic. Both the championship and consolation games will be played on Monday, September 3 in Kingston, R.I.
The Friars are coming off of a successful 2011 campaign, having finished the year with an 11-8-1 overall record, advancing to the NCAA Tournament for the second-consecutive season. Providence returns four of its top five scorers from a year ago, including the team's leading scorer sophomore Marcos Ugarte who tallied 15 points on six goals and three assists.

The squad suffered its second loss at Monmouth, 3-1, on August 27. After taking a 1-0 lead in the 37th minute on an Anthony Baumann penalty kick, the Hawks went on to score three second-half goals in the span of six minutes to put the game out of reach.
The Friars and Bulldogs last met on October 15, 2008 in Providence, R.I. Providence earned a 2-0 victory on that day.
