Anchorwomen Notables

RIC’s 9-2 record is the best 11-game start to a season in the program’s 11-year history. The Anchorwomen are riding a season-best six-game winning streak.

The Anchorwomen defeated in-state rival Salve Regina, 8-0, in the club’s only action last week on Wednesday, Oct. 5. 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. Gerrish’s goal was the first of her collegiate career. The Anchorwomen were not tested often in their own zone as freshman goalkeeper Krissie Pyzynski (Bristol, CT) made two saves in 69 minutes. Sophomore Leah Hayes (Coventry, RI) did not make a save in 21 minutes between the posts.

For efforts against the Seahawks, Calenda was named the Little East Conference Women’s Soccer Offensive Player of the Week.

RIC’s game against Western Connecticut scheduled for Saturday, Oct. 8, was postponed due to inclement weather. The two teams will play at RIC on Tuesday, Oct. 25 at 3:30 p.m.
