UPR-Rio Piedras Downs Buccaneers 4-0 in Opening Soccer Match

UPR-Rio Piedras, the defending LAI league soccer champions, defeated the UVI Buccaneers 4-0 on Friday, Sept. 19, at the season-opening match in Puerto Rico. Rio Piedras took a 2-0 lead in the first half and managed to add two additional goals late in the second half. UVI played the second half two players short, because the team’s two players from the St. Thomas Campus had to leave to catch their return flight. A conflict with the starting time on the schedule caused a later start than that on UVI's schedule.
