Homecoming weekend kicked off this Friday with some Northeast Conference women’s soccer action. The Colonials faced Saint Francis University in an afternoon match.

The Colonials started out on a solid note, led by senior forward Erin Ritzer. A near miss inside the box by Ritzer in the 7th minute proved to be the best chance for the RMU.

A couple crucial mistakes on the defensive end led to Robert Morris conceding a goal in the 34th minute to open up the scoring.

At halftime, the shots were even at six a piece, but the Saint Francis offense proved to be too much in the end and the Colonials fell to a 2-0 defeat.
