LAWRENCVEVILLE, NJ—“Praise youth and it will prosper” is an old Irish Proverb.

Playing with seven freshmen in the starting line-up, the Broncs defeated Robert Morris in the 2013 season opener, and Rider head coach Charlie Inverso had nothing but praise for his young Broncs.

“I think nine freshmen played today, but that is who we are,” Inverso said. “When you only have one senior and two juniors, it can be exciting, but the time is now. We’re not building for the future, we’re playing for now.”

Rider freshman Christian Flath (Bargeshagen, Germany) scored on a penalty kick with 18 minutes left in the second half for the game-winner.  “Christian is a solid player,” Inverso said.  “He struggled with the heat today, as most of us did.”

“It was a great felling to play my first match,” Flath said in his strong German accent. “It was very different from what I am used to but it was a lot of fun.”

Freshman Adrien Huss (Madrid, Spain) scored on a rebound after a shot by freshman Zach Bond (Holmdel, NJ) was saved to give Rider (1-0) a 1-0 lead 7:30 into the second half.

“Adrien did a good job today,” Inverso said.  “I knew what kind of player we were getting with him. He scored a big goal for us today to put us ahead.”

“I am really happy for all of the hard work our team has put in,” Huss said in his French accent.  “”In the first half it was very difficult but in the second half we did a really great job.  Personally, I am very happy to get my first goal.”

RMU (0-1) tied the score at 1-1 on a penalty kick less than a minute after the goal by Huss.

Rider freshman goalkeeper Jimmy Quilter (South Brunswick, NJ) made 11 saves in his collegiate debut.

RMU out-shot Rider 19-8, including 10-3 in the scoreless first half.

“It was difficult playing in this humidity,” Inverso said. “I didn’t think we were on our game today in the first half. In the second half we kept the ball. In this heat and humidity they couldn't keep chasing. In the second half we executed well.”

Rider defeated Robert Morris 2-1 to begin the 2008 season. When Rider and RMU were Northeast Conference rivals (1992-96) the Colonials won all five meetings.

RMU is now 3-1 at Rider.

The victory marked the second time in three years under coach Inverso that the Broncs won the season opener.

Rider hosts Saint Joseph’s University Tuesday night at 7pm. “The night before classes start so we’re hoping to get some student support,” Inverso said. “And its gotta be cooler than it was today.”

And the Broncs will all be one game older.
