In Case You Missed It

Rhode Island Goalkeeper Scores in 1-1 Tie
Despite posting an 0-1-1 record in goal for Rhode Island, goalkeeper Peyton Warwick treated fans to one of the rarest occurrences in soccer when he scored the game-tying goal in dramatic fashion against Fairfield on Saturday night. With URI trailing by a goal and just under a minute left on the clock, the Rams got a corner kick... Realizing that this would likely be Rhody’s last scoring opportunity, Warwick also went into the box – and managed to direct the bobbling corner kick into the back of net with just 36 seconds left in regulation. The game ended tied 1-1 after two overtime periods and Warwick finished with five saves.

Cross Country Draws First-Ever Regional Ranking

For the first time in its history, the Saint Louis University women’s cross country program is ranked in the U.S. Track and Field and Cross Country Coaches Association (USTFCCCA) Midwest Region rankings. The Billikens come in at No. 15 on the chart.
