How it Happened
Rhode Island (0-14-1, 0-6-1 A-10) fell to St. Bonaventure (1-11-4, 1-6-0 A-10) 2-1 Wednesday night at the URI Soccer Complex. The Bonnies found the back of the net once in each half while keeping Rhode Island off the board until the 88th minute.

Isabelle LaBarbera first put SBU on the board in the 40th minute, off an assist by Bella Marra. Mariah Marrero doubled the lead at the 56:57 mark, scoring an unassisted goal to make it 2-0.

Rhode Island finally found the back of the net in the final minutes of regulation, when Amanda Schafer scored off a setup from Rebecca D'Anna, but it was too little too late as the Bonnies held on for the 2-1 victory.
