PROVIDENCE, R.I. -
The Providence College men’s soccer team plays host to Holy Cross at 3:00 p.m. on Wednesday, Sept. 12 at Glay Field for what will be the Friars’ third consecutive home game.
Providence is coming off a weekend that included a 1-1 tie with Boston Universty and a 3-2 loss to Michigan State. Against the Terriers, red shirt junior Wilder Arboleda (Pawtucket, R.I.) tallied the game-tying goal in the 58th minute to force overtime when he headed home a 40-yard cross from red shirt freshman Rashi Desai (Holmdel, N.J.). Red shirt sophomore Keasel Broome (Claymont, Del.) finished the game with three saves. In a back and forth affair with Michigan State that saw the Friars come back to tie the score at 1-1 and 2-2, sophomore Marcos Urgarte (Providence, R.I.) and senior Keith Jecewiz (Smithtown, N.Y.) each finished the game with a goal and an assist, while junior Brian Grisell (Brookfield, Conn.) had two assists.
The Friars are 1-4-1 on the season, including a win over Bryant in the opening round of the Ocean State Classic (Aug. 31). Jecewiz leads the team in scoring with two goals and an assists for five points. With two goals, including the game-winning strike with time running out in double overtime against Bryant, Arboleda is second on the team with four points. Eight different Friars have tallied points on the season.
The Friars are coming off of a successful 2011 campaign, having finished the year with an 11-8-1 overall record and 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 Ugarte, who tallied 15 points on six goals and three assists as a freshman. The Friars have advanced to the NCAA Championship in five of the last seven seasons and have put together a string of seven consecutive winnings seasons.
Holy Cross: The Crusaders enter Wednesday’s contest with a 0-3-0 mark. They opened the season with a 2-1 loss to Quinnipiac (Aug. 30), followed by a 3-1 loss at Dartmouth (Sept. 2) and a 2-1 defeat to Sacred Heart (Sept. 5). Most recently, Holy Cross’ game with Bryant was postponed on Sept. 8 due to lightning. The Crusaders had been winning, 1-0, before the game had to be halted short of the 70 minute mark (which makes a game official).
Junior Josh Cintas lead the team in scoring with two goals for four points, while junior Monty Sanders has a goal and an assist on the year. In net, sophomore goalkeeper Michael Thompson has played every minute in all three of Holy Cross’ games, posting a 2.33 goals against average to go along with five saves and a .417 save percentage.
