Rider Advances To Regional Soccer Semifinal

Rider took advantage of its second chance against Fort Worth North Side tonight. The Raiders topped the Steers 3-0, beating the team that ended their playoff run last season.

Christian Okeke set up Colton Kowalick for a power strike near the midpoint of the first half to put Rider on the board. Cal Johnson added a score right before the half and Okeke scored his 36th goal of the season on a penalty kick early in the second half.

Rider returns home to face San Elizario/Brownwood in the regional semifinals at Memorial Stadium Friday at 2:30 p.m.
