ANCHORWOMEN HOLD ON FOR ONE-GOAL VICTORY

Providence, RI—The Rhode Island College Anchorwomen scored two goals early and held off a late charge from the Roger Williams Hawks to earn a 3-2 victory in collegiate women’s soccer action on Tuesday, Sept. 6.

 

RIC got on the scoreboard early in the tenth minute as sophomore midfielder Michaela Bileau (Woonsocket, RI) took a ball that was misplayed by Hawks’ freshman goalkeeper Kayla Leonard (Martha’s Vineyard, MA) and put it in the back of the net. That goal was followed two minutes later when junior midfielder Caitlin Gavin (Portsmouth, RI) put the Anchorwomen up 2-0.

 

Roger Williams fought back in the second half scoring in the 53rd minute when freshman Kristen O’Gorman (Tyngsboro, MA) scored to pull the Hawks within one goal. That margin would not last very long as 24 seconds later, RIC sophomore midfielder Krista MacKinnon (Exeter, RI) scored what turned out to be the game-winner. The Hawks added a goal in the 62nd minute on junior forward Caitlin Mayo’s (Merrimack, NH) tally, but ultimately could not pull even.

 

In goal for RIC, freshman Krissie Pyzynski (Bristol, CT) stopped four shots to pick up her second win of the season. Leonard also turned away four Anchorwomen shots and took the loss. With the win, RIC improves to 2-0 on the season while the Hawks fall to 1-2.

 

In upcoming action, RIC will host Coast Guard on Friday, September 9 at 3 p.m.
