UConn up 1-0 at the half. Neglected to mention that John Tuite has Dan Donigan with him on the WHUS radio broadcast tonight.

Went to the game. Good crowd. Typical UConn soccer game. They looked like a team that could go deep in the NCAA's in the first half. Than couldn't string together a pass for most of the 2nd half. Always seem to lose steam as the game goes on. #5 is very fast. The Rutgers transfer got a goal and almost another on a breakaway. Whoever was keeping score was stuffing the shots on goal for Rider. They got one on the scoreboard for a ball that went way over the goal. And UConn was not given one for a ball that went through to their goalie. John Tuite on the way home said the official scorers had the shots different than the scoreboard. Anyways, Monday at URI should tell us more.

John Tuite also said that UConn went into a defensive shell mode after the second goal. Never cared too much for that sort of play, especially after having the better of the play before that point in the game.

I was at the end other end so I didn't realize that Hall got the first goal as well. He was very feisty out there.

Jordan Hall scores his third goal of the season about 20 minutes into the 1st half to tie the game at 1.

Jordan Hall scores another goal to make it 2-1 UConn late in the 1st half. Fourth goal of the young season for Hall.

Give me a guy who can put the ball in the net anyday. Pretty good sign that we can go on the road and win by more than one goal and still have room for some improvement. These were the type of games we were losing on the road due to inability to score. A guy like Hall can just win games by himself. Invaluable. No idea if he keeps it up the pace but 5 goals in 2 games is All American level stuff.
