LAURIE & CALENDA SCORE AS ANCHORWOMEN
OPEN CAMPAIGN IN, 2-2, TIE

Providence, RIóDespite outshooting St. John Fisher, 26-13, Rhode Island College battled the Cardinals to a 2-2 tie in the season-opening contest for both clubs.

 

St. John Fisher got on the board in the seventh minute as sophomore midfielder Mary Dougherty (Liverpool, NY) settled a pass from freshman defender Danielle Pommerville (Macedon, NY) from 25-yards out and lofted a shot that eluded RIC junior goalkeeper Krissie Pyzynski (Bristol, CT). The Cardinals went into the first intermission with a one-goal lead, even though Rhode Island College led in the shot differential (8-2).

 

The Anchorwomen kept up the pressure in the second stanza as senior defender Mallary Bileau (Woonsocket, RI) sent senior midfielder Lindsay Laurie (Warwick, RI) in on a breakaway to tie the contest, 1-1, in the 52nd minute.

 

Rhode Island College took the lead in the 78th minute as Laurie crossed a pass to senior forward Gina Calenda (Warren, RI) who fired a shot into the back of the net from 10 yards out.

 

The lead, however, was short-lived as St. John Fisher as freshman forward Meagan Gee (Dansville, NY) beat Pyzynski with a long-range shot from the corner in the 79th minute.

 

Both clubs had their opportunities in the remaining 11 minutes of regulation and in overtime, but the game ended in a draw.

 

Pyzynski made four saves, while Cardinalsí sophomore netminder Ashley Martin (Marcellus, NY) made eight saves.

 

In upcoming action, Rhode Island College will host cross-city rival Johnson & Wales on Tuesday, Sept. 4 at 4 p.m.
