The Riverhawks earned a, 2-1, win over the NJCAA DI Region XX Cougars of Frederick Community College earlier this evening (10/3). A conference win, the Riverhawks are now 5-4 in the Maryland Junior College Athletic Conference - 5-6 overall.
The Cougars were first to strike in the match, taking advantage of a crowded box and sneaking a header past Riverhawk goalkeeper Austin Noland (Glen Burnie, MD/Glen Burnie) to claim the 1-0 lead, midway through the first.
Riverhawks' go-to player for corner kicks, Logan Mayette (Millersville, MD/Old Mill) put up a beautiful cross that proved to be too much for FCC goalkeeper as it found the net and tied the match at 1-1. The score would remain at 1-1 as the first half came to an end.
AACC would not take long in the second to claim the lead in the match, as Ryan Gruss (Pasadena, MD/Chesapeake) would finish off an assist from Konstantinos Nakas (Gambrills, MD/Arundel) jsut 6 minutes in, giving the Riverhawks the edge at 2-1.
Fans got to watch a great ninety minutes of play as both teams were relentless in their efforts, but with neither side scoring - the Riverhawks would earn the 2-1 victory over the Cougars.
Next on the schedule for the Riverhawks is another HOME contest this Friday (10/6) at 4:00 p.m. where they will face the NJCAA DII Region XX Cardinals of CCBC Catonsville. The match will be played in Siegert Stadium of the Anne Arundel Community College campus in Arnold, MD.
