AMBLER, PA—“Mike, Mike, Mike, Mike, Mike. What day is it Mike? Hump Daaaaaayyy!”

Who is happier than a camel on Wednesday? The Temple men’s soccer team, after defeating Rider Wednesday to begin the season 4-0.

Unfortunately for the Rider men’s soccer team, the Broncs could not get over the hump on Wednesday, being shutout for the first time this season and suffering the first loss of the season.

“I thought it was a pretty even game,” said Rider head coach Charlie Inverso. “The heat was stifling, which prevented us from moving the ball around the way we like to. Both teams had to play in it, however, and the game played at a slow pace because of it.”

Temple (4-0) scored the only goal of the game on a penalty kick with 12:55 left to play. “Anybody who was at the game will say it was a questionable call,” Inverso said.  “That is one of the things that happen when you go on the road, but that is not the reason we lost. There were things we could have done better.”

The Owls out-shot Rider (2-1) 12-6, including 4-1 in shots on goal.

Rider freshman goalkeeper Jimmy Quilter (South Brunswick, NJ) made three saves before being injured with 20 minutes remaining. “Jimmy played well but injured his leg and had to come out,” Inverso said.

Rider freshman goalkeeper David Pastuna (Robbinsville, NJ) made his collegiate debut and allowed the PK.

Rider senior Eric Elgin (Mechanicsburg, PA/Cumberland Valley) earned praise from his coach.  “Elgin was once again very solid in the back for us,” Inverso said.

Temple was 4-0-1 against Rider in the previous five meetings. “I’m disappointed in the loss, but looking at the big picture I’m not disappointed,” Inverso said.  “I am still very optimistic about the future of this program.”

Rider lost 2-0 to Temple last year in Lawrenceville.

Rider and Temple are former East Coast Conference rivals.  Rider and Temple have now met 33 times since the series began in 1961 with Rider winning five and there have been two ties. The last time Rider defeated Temple was 2000 and the two teams tied in 2001.

Rider travels to New England to take on Bryant on Sunday. “It is always tough to go on the road and win,” Inverso said.  “They (Bryant) just lost 1-0 to the 20th ranked team in the nation (Brown) so all indications are they are going to be a pretty good team to play.”

Bryant will be the proverbial hill the Broncs will have to climb to get over the hump.
