Anchorwomen Fall In Double Overtime

 

Providence, RIóThe Rhode Island College Anchorwomen were defeated, 3-2 in double overtime, by the Framingham State College Rams at home on Thursday, Oct. 2. Framingham State freshman forward Amber Goodreau (Ludlow, MA) drilled a shot into the net off RIC junior goalkeeper Melissa Carpentier (Woonsocket, RI) in the second overtime period to give the Rams the victory.

 

Framingham State opened the scoring with two goals in the first 32 minutes. Sophomore defender Amy Cunningham (Dedham, MA) scored first, then teammate, freshman forward, Karin Knutsen (Fairhaven, MA) tallied a goal to put the Rams up, 2-0.

 

RIC answered those goals with two of its own in the second half. Junior midfielder Elena Sanborn (North Situate, RI) scored in the 46th minute as she received a cross from senior midfielder Hollie Benevides (North Dighton, MA) and slid the ball past Ram goalkeeper, sophomore, Blair Eberman (Plymouth, MA) who had replaced starter, junior, Christina Sullivan (Natick, MA) at the beginning of the second half. The Anchorwomen scored again, 12 minutes later, as junior forward Alexis Bouchard (Warren, RI) took a rebound off the goalpost and put the ball into the net to tie the game, 2-2. Towards the end of the second half, both the rain and temperature fell as both offenses searched for chances to score.

 

RICís Carpentier made nine saves between the posts while Framingham Stateís Sullivan and Eberman stopped four and five shots, respectively. Sullivan returned to the field during the overtime periods to backstop the Rams to victory.

 

In upcoming action, RIC will play at UMass-Boston on Saturday, Oct. 4 beginning at 1 p.m.
