WARRIORS EARN FIRST CONFERENCE WIN

 

Providence, RI—Eastern Connecticut State University evened its overall record at 3-3 and improved to 1-0 in the Little East Conference with a, 2-1, win over Rhode Island College. The loss drops the Anchorwomen to 3-4 overall and 0-1 in the LEC.

 

ECSU sophomore midfielder Meghann Booth (Windsor Locks, CT) and junior forward Jen Ferrari (Coventry, RI) were the offensive story for the Warriors. Booth opened the day’s scoring, converting a Ferrari pass to put ECSU up, 1-0, in the 24th minute. RIC answered right back with freshman forward Erika Haaland (North Dartmouth, MA) chipping in a goal off of senior midfielder Hollie Benevides’ (Rehoboth, MA) throw-in during the 28th minute.

 

The two squads traded scoring chances in the second half, but neither team could convert until Ferrari netted the game-winner on a crossing pass from Booth in the 76th minute. Warrior’s senior netminder Stacey Schofield (Woodstock, CT) made three saves to earn the victory, while junior Melissa Carpentier (Woonsocket, RI) made seven stops in a losing effort for RIC.

 

In upcoming action, RIC will play at Westfield State on Wednesday, Sept. 24 at 7 p.m.
