Broncs Host Robert Morris

LAWRENCEVILLE, NJ—Rider’s first-ever Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference field hockey game takes place today at 12 noon on the Ben Cohen Field.

Rider (8-4, 0-0 MAAC) hosts Robert Morris University (7-4, 0-0 MAAC) to begin conference play.

Rider and Robert Morris have been Northeast Conference rivals for nine years, with Rider winning eight of those nine contests, including a thrilling 5-4 overtime battle last year in Moon Township, PA.

The Broncs are led by their all-time leading scorer, senior Sandra Penas (Barcelona, Spain), along with freshman Nicole Hareau (Montevideo, Uruguay).  The pair has combined for 20 goals and 10 assists in 12 games.

Robert Morris is led by Chloe McIlwaine and Jess Martin Brown, who each has eight goals this year.

Several former Rider field hockey players will also be on hand for Field Hockey Alumni Day and will be introduced at half time.

Weather permitting, Sunday’s game, as well as all 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.
