Lincoln's Loparto rules first game with RIC women's soccer team

PROVIDENCE – Rhode Island College freshman Lily Loparto, who graduated this past spring from Lincoln High after enjoying an exceptional career with the school’s girls’ soccer team, had a collegiate debut to remember for the RIC women’s soccer team.

Facing Dean College at the Dean Bulldog Bash last Saturday afternoon in Franklin, Mass., Loparto scored three goals and added two assists to lead the Anchorwomen to a 5-1 victory. All three of her goals came in the second half.

Thanks to her superb performance, Loparto was named the Little East Conference Women’s Soccer Offensive Player and Rookie of the Week on Monday afternoon.

RIC will host Salve Regina on Saturday at noon.
