MAAC Quarterfinals

Rider University 2, Marist College 1

LAKE BUENA VISTA, FLORIDA—“Revenge is a dish best served cold.”

Especially when it is served in 88 degree weather under the warm Central Florida sun.

Rider suffered its most lopsided loss of this season to Marist, losing 5-0 on October 5. Last season in the 2012 season finale, Rider lost 1-0 to Marist in a game the Broncs needed just to tie to make the four-team championship tournament.

On Friday, the Broncs revenged both of those losses.

The Rider University women’s soccer team defeated Marist College Friday afternoon and advanced to the semifinals in the 11-team Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference Championship tournament, held at the ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex.

“It’s good to be able to play a team that you lost to before and turn the result,” said Rider head coach Drayson Hounsome

Rider freshman Heather Maierle (Wantagh, N.Y./Friends Academy) led the Broncs with a goal, her first, and an assist, her second.

Maierle scored from 30 yards out in the 59th minute to break a 1-1 tie. “Heather picked the ball up at midfield and dribbled up past three or four players and bent it in with her right foot to give us the win,” Hounsome said.  “It was great.”

Freshman Caroline Healy (Dublin, Ireland/Alexandra College) scored on an assist from Maierle on a corner kick from freshman Hollie Kelsh (Lancashire, England/Sandbach) to give Rider a 1-0 lead in the 56th minute of play.

Marist came right back and tied the score at 1-1 less than two minutes later on a goal by Rycke Guiney, who scored three goals against Rider during the regular season. “We marked her in the first half and it worked,” Hounsome said.  “It was a little disappointing that we gave a goal back straight away, but we had a few starters out with injuries at the time.”

Rider freshman goalkeeper Bethany-May Howard (Glastonbury, England/Bridgwater College) played the second half and made four saves. “Beth made some great saves,” Hounsome said.

Rider freshman goalkeeper Vanessa Perdomo (Hillsborough, NJ/South Brunswick) played the first half.

Marist (8-10-2, 6-4 MAAC), the fourth seed, out-shot Rider (9-7-1, 5-4-1 MAAC), the fifth seed, 11-9, but the Broncs had six shots on goal, compared to five by the Red Foxes.

The last time Rider defeated Marist was 5-1 during the 2011 season.

Rider lost at Marist 5-0 on October 5, the most goals Rider allowed in a game this year. The Broncs lost 1-0 at Marist in the 2012 season finale, knocking Rider out of the four-team playoff picture. The Red Foxes own an 11-7 advantage in the series that began in 1997.

Rider will now play in the semifinals Sunday at 11am, broadcast on ESPN3, against the top seed, Monmouth, who defeated the ninth seed, Canisius, 1-0 on Friday.

“Another opportunity for us to try to turn the tables on a team that defeated us,” Hounsome said.

Monmouth defeated Rider 3-0 this season.

Time for another dish served cold in the warm Florida sun.
