Men’s Soccer Home Wednesday

Broncs Host NJIT

LAWRENCEVILLE, NJ—Off to its best start since Johnny Carson was live on television, the Rider men’s soccer team brings its 5-1 record to Ben Cohen Field Wednesday afternoon, hosting the New Jersey Institute of Technology at 4pm.

The Broncs have won their last three games and are led by a combination of youth and experience, mostly youth.

On the offensive end Rider is led by freshman Christian Flath (Bargeshagen, Germany), freshman Adrien Huss (Madrid, Spain) and sophomore Sonimi Halliday (Sicklerville, NJ/Timber Creek),  and on the defensive end by senior Eric Elgin (Mechanicsburg, PA/Cumberland Valley) and a pair of rookie goalkeepers, freshman David Pastuna (Robbinsville, NJ) and freshman Jimmy Quilter (South Brunswick, NJ).

“Sonimi and Eric have gotten so much better in the back,” said Rider head coach Charlie Inverso, “that we can start our attacks out of the back.”

Flath currently leads the MAAC with nine points, compiling three goals and a conference-best three assists.

Huss began his collegiate career by being named the MAAC Rookie of the Week.

Halliday has a MAAC-leading two game-winning goals this season, two more goals than he scored as a freshman.

Elgin, the team captain, continues to lead the Bronc defense, which leads the MAAC in fewest goals allowed and goals against average.

Quilter started the first three games in the Rider nets and owns a 2-0 record while allowing just two goals.  His .909 save percentage is the best in the MAAC.

Pastuna has started the last three games, winning all three, and has compiled a pair of shutouts to earn MAAC Rookie of the Week honors. His two shutouts are the most in the MAAC, as is his 0.59 goals against average.

The two keepers have combined to make 29 saves, third most in the MAAC.

NJIT (2-5-1) just returned from Evansville, where the Highlanders lost a pair of 2-1 games to Evansville and Green Bay. NJIT defeated St. Bonaventure 3-0, the team Rider recently defeated 1-0. The Highlanders took 22nd ranked FDU to a 1-0 game and 19th ranked St. John’s to a 2-1 contest.

Rider and NJIT have not met since the Broncs defeated the Highlanders 3-1 during the 2010 season.

Wednesday afternoon at 4pm on the Ben Cohen Field, the Broncs will try to improve to 6-1.

Wednesday's game, as well as 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.

“Heeeere’s Rider!”
