Box Score

KINGSTON, R.I. – The Holy Cross men’s soccer team dropped a 3-0 decision at Rhode Island in a non-conference match up on Tuesday night. The Crusaders recorded four shots, three landing on goal, but were unable to convert. Henry Stutz turned aside eight shots in the game.

 

Ten minutes into the opening frame, Rhode Island’s Tyler Dickinson headed in a corner kick from Dominik Richter to take a 1-0 lead. The Rams and Crusaders played the remaining 35 minutes of the first half scoreless after the opening goal.

 

In the second half the Rams added two goals in one minute of action to take a 3-0 lead. Edvin Akselsen tallied a goal in the 48th minute and again in the 49th minute.

 

Edi Mujan received two yellow cards in the game, forcing the Crusaders to play a man down from the 24th minute on.

 

INSIDE THE NUMBERS:

  • URI outshot Holy Cross, 15-4. In the first half, the Crusaders recorded three shots to the Ram’s eight.
  • The Rams out-advantaged the Crusaders with corner kicks, 5-3.
  • Henry Stutz made a total of eight saves, seven in the first half.

 

COACH KOOLMAN ON THE GAME:

 

“As soon as you play with 10 men it becomes an impossible mission, which became evident. It is unfortunate because the game would have been a really good test, playing a really good team on the road. Unfortunately we did not answer the test. Now, we go back to the drawing board and prepare for next week’s game against BC.”

 

The Crusaders return to play on Tuesday, Sept. 11 at 5:00 p.m. at Boston College.
