(Weston, Mass.) The Rivier University Men's Soccer team saw a late 2-1 lead evaporate as they fell on the road to Regis College, 3-2 in overtime this evening in a Great Northeast Athletic Conference contest.

Freshman Prince Moye (Lowell, Mass.) would give the Raiders the lead in the 66th minute as he chipped a pass from classmate Pedro Lopez (Methuen, Mass.) over the keeper's head for his third of the year.
The lead was short lived as Regis netted their second of the game off the foot of Litchie Barbosa. Barbosa was able to place a free kick from about 25 yards out into the back of the net. Chris Szarek recorded the game-winner five minutes into the overtime period off a pass from Barbosa to give the Pride the win.
