Broncs Build Momentum for This Weekend

LAWRENCEVILLE--The Rider University men's soccer team is 2-0-1 in its last three games and hosts a pair of Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference games this weekend.

Rider (1-0-1 MAAC) hosts Siena (6-5, 2-0 MAAC) Friday night at 7pm and Marist (5-5-1, 1-1 MAAC) Sunday afternoon at 1pm.  Both games will take place on the Ben Cohen Field.

Rider traveled to Western New York last weekend and faced Canisius and Niagara, who were a combined 14-1-5 overall, and the Broncs came home with a win and a tie, good for four points in the conference standings.

"It's exciting to come home with four points," said Rider head coach Charlie Inverso.

The Broncs enter the weekend tied for second place in the 10-team MAAC.

Rider senior goalkeeper Matt Perrella (North Brunswick, N.J./N. Brunswick) collected the win, the tie and the shutout last weekend and was named the MAAC Defensive Player of the Week.

This week's opponents will be just as tough.

Marist is 3-1 on the road but plays at Loyola Friday before coming to Lawrenceville.  Siena has won its last two games, both against conference teams, and stands at the top of the MAAC standings.

Last year Rider tied Siena 0-0 in Loudonville, NY and lost 3-0 to Marist in Poughkeepsie. 

Marist is Rider's oldest conference foe.

Rider and Marist are former Northeast Conference rivals and both teams joined the MAAC in 1997. The Broncs lost 3-1 to Marist the last time the Red Foxes visited Lawrenceville. The last time Rider defeated Marist was 2008. Rider and Marist have met 21 times since 1992 with Rider winning nine and there was one tie.

The Broncs  lost 4-1 to Siena the last time the Saints came to Lawrenceville (2010).  Rider and Siena have met 17 times since the series began in 1997 with Rider winning five and there have been four ties.

The last time Rider defeated Siena was 2004. 

"I hope we can get some people out to support us," Inverso said.  "We're starting to give people a reason to pay attention to what we are doing."

If Rider can come away with four more points this weekend everyone in the MAAC will be paying attention.
