SOUTH ORANGE-The Broncs lost in the first minute of overtime at Seton Hall Monday night. "We gave a really good effort against a good BIG EAST team," said Rider head coach Charlie Inverso.  "There are a ton of positives to take from this. This thing is moving forward, a big jump from where we were last year."

Seton Hall (2-2) scored on a header after Rider senior goalkeeper Matt Perrella (North Brunswick, N.J./N. Brunswick) made a save, his sixth of the game. "Perrella made some big plays for us," Inverso said.

Rider (0-2) took a 1-0 lead when sophomore Ryan Walsh (Chesterfield, NJ/Northern Burlington Regional) took a pass from senior Brenden Noesges (Freehold, N.J./Freehold Township) and scored on a header 12 minutes into the game to give Rider a 1-0 lead.

The goal was the first in the career for Walsh, a midfielder. "It was a free kick from about 40 yards out," Inverso said.  "Noes clipped it in and Walsh got a head on it. It was a nice goal and something we spend a lot of time practicing on."

Seton Hall tied the score at 1-1 with just 18 seconds left in the first half.

Seton Hall out-shot Rider 17-11, including 8-4 shots on goal.  SHU had eight corners to Rider's five.

Rider defeated Seton Hall 1-0 in the 2011 season opener here in South Orange.  "We got a win here last year but to be honest in that game I'm not sure if we put more than two passes together that entire game," Inverso said. "Tonight the game was straight even up. We attacked and moved the ball around."

Rider and Seton Hall have now met 23 times since the series began in 1939, with the Broncs holding a 13-8-2 advantage.  The last time these two teams met prior to last year was the 1993 season opener, a 6-1 Seton Hall victory.

Rider lost 10 games by one goal last year, the first under Inverso, and added another one-goal loss Monday night. "It's unbelievable like we have this curse of losing close games," Inverso said.

Rider travels to Brooklyn to take on Long Island University Saturday. "We want to play good competition this year, and so far we've played two really good team and we played with them," Inverso said. "We were almost even with Monmouth and we were definitely even tonight."
