Rider Announces 2013 Schedule

LAWRENCEVILLE, NJ—The 2013 Rider University fall athletic season begins August 23 with a Friday afternoon women’s soccer game at Bucknell.

“This might be the shortest preseason we’ve had,” said Rider head coach Drayson Hounsome, who led the 2012 Broncs to their highest winning percentage (.676) in program history.

Rider and Bucknell have never met in women’s soccer. “We were looking for a good Patriot League team to play and they are a strong program,” Hounsome said.

Rider is 21-8-4 at home over the last four years and plays the 2013 home opener Friday, August 30, a 5pm start on Ben Cohen Field against Bryant.

Rider defeated Bryant in the only other meeting in 2011.”We played a good game up there a few years ago,” Hounsome said. 

After the Rider students return to campus the Broncs host Mount St. Mary’s September 6 for a Friday afternoon game.

Rider beat The Mount 1-0 last year in Emmitsburg, Maryland. “We’ve had exciting games with them over the last few years,” Hounsome said. ‘It is becoming a nice rivalry.”

Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference play begins September 21 when Rider hosts Siena for a Saturday afternoon game. Rider won in overtime at Siena last year. “It is good to have the first conference game at home,” Hounsome said.

September features local trips to Temple and Garden State rivals Fairleigh Dickinson and NJIT.  “There are so many good teams in the area there is no reason to travel that far,” Hounsome said.

Rider will have to travel far for conference road trips to Canisius and new MAAC member Quinnipiac.

Rider defeated FDU, NJIT and Canisius at Rider last year, and defeated Temple at Rider in 2011. Rider and Quinnipiac have never met.

Rider travels to defending champion Marist for a Saturday night game on October 5.

The Broncs are home for four conference games in October, including a Wednesday night game October 9 with Saint Peter’s. “That’s a game we’re hoping to get a big crowd at,” Hounsome said.

Rider was a 6-2 winner over the Peacocks last year. “I don’t think it will be quite as easy this time,” Hounsome said.

Rider travels to the Jersey Shore for a Wednesday night game against new MAAC member Monmouth October 16. “We play Monmouth every year,” Hounsome said, “and they are usually good, competitive matches.”

Rider and Monmouth tied last season in a game also at Monmouth.

The Broncs will play the final two games of the regular season at home, hosting Niagara October 23 and Fairfield October 26.

The Broncs defeated Niagara on Senior Day last year at Rider. Fairfield also came to Rider last season and scored with just 40 seconds left to leave with a 1-0 win.

All 11 teams compete in the MAAC Championship Tournament which begins October 31 and runs to November 4 at the ESPN Wide World of Sports complex in Lake Buena Vista, Florida.

The top five teams receive a bye into the MAAC quarterfinals, with the bottom six teams playing in the opening round. “If you get the bye you still have to win three games in three days, so it’s challenging,” Hounsome said.

Weather permitting, all home soccer 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.
