The CCRI men’s soccer team traveled to New Rochelle, NY to play the Mustangs of Monroe College on Saturday. The Knights fell to a high-powered Monroe team 6-0 Saturday night. With the loss the Knights fall to 2-7 on the season.
The Knights knew what they were up against coming into the game, as Monroe had scored a combined 39 goals in its previous three games to go along with an overall record of 8-0-2. To make things worse, the Knights were again fighting off injuries and could only keep Monroe off of the scoreboard for the first 30 minutes.
“Luis Navas and Rob Gallucci in particular had good games for us,” Head Coach Gabe Toro said. “Andrew Grenier and Adam Couto also did well playing on the back line for us, but eventually we had some breakdowns and Monroe was able to capitalize on their opportunities.”
The game at Monroe Saturday night was the front end of a weekend doubleheader for the men’s soccer team, as they traveled to Mercer Community College in West Windsor, New Jersey on Sunday for a 12 p.m. start.
The Community College of Rhode Island, New England’s largest comprehensive community college, enrolls nearly 18,000 students in credit courses and thousands more in non-credit and job training classes. Its athletic program boasts 12 varsity programs and an academic support program for all student-athletes.
