2013 Rider Schedule Announced

LAWRENCEVILLE—Coming off its third straight NCAA Play-In game appearance, the Rider University field hockey team will open its 2013 schedule on August 30 in New York at Colgate and the home opener will take place at 7pm on September 20 at Ben Cohen Field against Towson head coach Lori Hussong announced.

“This year’s schedule will be as challenging as it has been in years past,” said Hussong who enters her 14th season with 184 wins.  “The non-conference portion of our schedule has been designed to help prepare us for conference play.  It will be very important for our young team to learn to compete quickly together from these early games and be at our best as we try and qualify for the first MAAC field hockey championship.”

After the opener at Colgate, Rider will continue the season with road games against Georgetown (at College Park, Maryland) on September 1, at Villanova on September 4, at Brown on September 8 and at Hofstra on September 13.

After the home game against Towson, the Broncs hit the road again for five straight games, against Appalachian State (at JMU) on September 22, at Drexel on September 25, at Lock Haven September 28, at Saint Joseph’s October 4 and at Lehigh on October 6.

10 of Rider’s first 11 games are away from home.

The University of Pennsylvania will visit Rider for a Play 4 The Cure game on October 9 at 5pm and the Broncs open Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference play against Robert Morris at noon on October 13.

This is Rider’s first season in the MAAC for field hockey after 15 seasons in the Northeast Conference where the Broncs compiled a 95-27 NEC record.

The Broncs won seven NEC Regular Season Titles, including the last four in a row and Rider won six NEC Championships including the last three straight.

After MAAC games at Bryant (October 18) and Siena (October 20), Rider hosts MAAC-rivals Quinnipiac on October 25 at 4pm and Sacred Heart on October 27 at noon when the Broncs will honor their graduating seniors.

The Broncs play at MAAC-rival Monmouth on November 1 and Rider will complete the regular season against cross-town rival and perennial national power Princeton on November 3.

The top four teams qualify for the MAAC playoffs with Rider serving as host November 8-9.

Rider returns 13 letterwinners including All-Region honoree Sandra Penas (Barcelona, Spain) who enters her senior season third on Rider’s all-time scoring list with 133 points (54g, 25a).

The Broncs went 16-5 last season, losing the NCAA Play-In at the University of Massachusetts 2-1 in overtime after a 1-0 double overtime loss at Princeton in 2011.  The University at Albany defeated Rider 2-1 in the 2010 NCAA Play-In game.

Weather permitting, all five home field hockey games will be streamed on BroncVision, the pay per view video stream of Rider Athletics.

GameWatcher (LiveStats) will also be available for free on the website for all home games and most away contests.
