The University of Rhode Island’s women’s soccer team lost 2-0 in a competitive game against Northeastern University on Sunday, dropping them to a 3-3-1 record for the 2015 soccer season.

Rhode Island gave up a PK kick to the Huskies in the 25th minute. URI head coach Michael Needham said he was surprised junior goalkeeper Katie Nickles, who is leading the conference in saves, “couldn’t clean that one up.”

Rhode Island went down 2-0, when Northeastern netted another goal in the 38th minute.

“[During halftime] we talked about going out into the second half and putting more pressure on northeastern,” Needham said.

The Rams battled in the second half,  putting the ball in dangerous areas on Northeastern’s side of the field. However, they couldn’t find the back of the net.

Coach Needham was “pleased with the result of the game,” and said the team “works hard together and each team that brings a new challenge.”

Rhode Island is moving into conference play and host the University of Vermont on Sunday Sept. 20 at 1 p.m.
