ANCHORWOMEN TIE SCHOOL RECORD
IN SHUTOUT WIN

Providence, RI—Rhode Island College tied a school record with its sixth consecutive win in an 8-0 rout over visiting Salve Regina on Wednesday afternoon. The Anchorwomen improve to 9-2 on the year, the best 11-game start to a season in the program’s 11-year history. The Seahawks fall to 5-5 overall in the loss.

 

Sophomore forward Gina Calenda (Warren, RI) and sophomore midfielder Krista MacKinnon (Exeter, RI) the Anchorwomen with two goals and one assist for five-point efforts. Calenda scored what proved to be the game-winning goal in the 21st minute. Junior forward Erika Haaland (North Dartmouth, MA) also scored two goals. Sophomore midfielder Michaela Bileau (Woonsocket, RI) and freshman midfielder Kendra Gerrish (North Stonington, CT) also tallied for the Anchorwomen.
