LAWRENCEVILLE, NJ— Some arguable questions stand the test of time.  Coke or Pepsi?  Paper or Plastic?  Pink or Purple?

In Rider’s Kicks Against Cancer game, the Pink Broncs took on the Niagara Purple Eagles in women’s soccer Wednesday afternoon.

Pink is made by combining cranberry and white, Rider’s colors. Purple is made by combining red and blue, the colors of anger and depression.

You can’t blame the Rider cranberry and white for feeling angry and depressed after tying the Niagara Purple Eagles in a Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference game.

“Very disappointing that we did not win this game,” said Rider head coach Drayson Hounsome.  “We got called offside a lot (five times) and I think we got frustrated. It’s disappointing that we did not get three points (for a win) but one point (for a tie) is better than zero.”

Rider (7-7-1, 4-4-1 MAAC) trailed for 36 seconds before freshman Priscilla Santos (Glendora, Calif./Glendora) came in off the bench and got her head on a long pass up field from freshman Victoria Maley (Massapequa, N.Y./Massapequa) and scored her second goal of the year.

Niagara (4-11-2, 3-4-2 MAAC) took a 1-0 lead in the 76th minute of play on a goal from in close off of a crossing pass. “I’m very proud of the way we responded after giving up a sloppy goal,” Hounsome said.

Rider freshman goalkeeper Bethany-May Howard (Glastonbury, England/Bridgwater College) played the entire second half and overtime, making two saves. Rider freshman goalkeeper Vanessa Perdomo (Hillsborough, NJ/South Brunswick) played the scoreless first half, making one save.

Rider out-shot Niagara 21-8. “We had enough chances,” Hounsome said, “we just didn’t look sharp in the final third. We didn’t convert our chances.”

Rider had four corner kicks to Niagara’s three.

Rider defeated Niagara 3-2 last year here in Lawrenceville.

This was the 17th meeting between Rider and Niagara with the Broncs winning just six. This was the first tie in the series that began in 1997.

Rider plays the final game of the regular season at home Saturday against Fairfield. “We’re at a stage where we have to win,” Hounsome said.  “We’re still unbeaten at home so hopefully we can get three points.”

Rider’s six graduating seniors will be honored Saturday prior to the 1pm start, their final game wearing the cranberry and white at home.
