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

Rhode Island went down 2-0, when Northeastern netted another goal in the 38th minute.
“[During halftime] weÂ talked about goingÂ out into the second half and putting more pressure on northeastern,” Needham said.
The Rams battled in the second half, Â putting theÂ ball in dangerous areas on Northeastern’s side of theÂ field. However, they couldn’t find the back of the net.
Coach Needham was “pleased with the result of the game,” and saidÂ theÂ team “works hard together andÂ each team that brings a new challenge.”
