(Nashua, N.H.) The Rivier University Men's Soccer team wrapped up their 2016 campaign this evening with a resounding 3-0 win over Pine Manor College in a non-conference contest at a chilly Raider Field. The game was originally scheduled for a noon time start at Pine Manor however due to unplayable field conditions; the game was rescheduled and moved to Nashua.
The win gives Rivier an even 8-8-1 overall record. Pine Manor drops to 4-9-1 on the season with three to play.
Sophomore Christopher Buzan (Dunstable, Mass.) got the scoring started in the first half. Senior Alex Armstrong (Wakefield, R.I.) lofted a perfect ball off a corner kick that went over the Pine Manor goalkeeper's outstretched hands and found the head of Buzan who connected for his fourth goal of the season.
The Raiders will have five full days to prepare for their next contest, a Great Northeast Athletic Conference Quarterfinal matchup with second seeded Norwich University on Saturday afternoon in Northfield, Vermont. Pine Manor, meanwhile, will be right back on the pitch tomorrow evening as they travel to Wheelock College.
