ANCHORWOMEN BLITZ WILDCATS, 4-1
DONAHUE NOTCHES FIRST COLLEGIATE GOAL

Providence, RI—The Rhode Island College women’s soccer team notched their first win of the 2007 campaign in a 4-1 victory over Johnson & Wales on Tuesday afternoon. The Anchorwomen outshot JWU, 43-8, and carried play for almost the entire contest.

 

Senior back Kerry Donahue (Rehoboth, MA), who was playing forward for the first time at RIC, banked a shot off the bottom of the crossbar in the 11th minute for her first collegiate goal, which put the Anchorwomen up, 1-0.

 

Johnson & Wales capitalized on a RIC defensive breakdown, which led to a two-on-one rush. In the 42nd minute, Wildcat freshman Jen Hurley (Freeport, NY) dished a pass to freshman midfielder Colleen Marasco (Endwell, NY) who deposited a shot in the far left corner to even the contest, 1-1.

 

The tie was short-lived as freshman midfielder Kristina Haughey (Lincoln, RI) put RIC on top, 2-1, with her first collegiate goal just 33 seconds later. Freshman midfielder Rebecca Corregan (Mendham, NJ) earned her first collegiate point with an assist on the play.

 

RIC added two insurance goals as sophomore midfielder Christina Tavana (Middletown, CT) and senior forward Gina Calenda (Warren, RI) scored in the 73rd and 90th minute, respectively. Calenda needs just nine goals to tie the Rhode Island College all-time mark (38). Senior forward Lindsay Laurie (Warwick, RI) was credited with an assist on each goal, raising her team-leading point total to five. Freshman midfielder Chelsea Creamer (Coventry, RI) recorded her first collegiate point with a helper on Tavana’s tally.

 

JWU sophomore Kate Nast (Quakertown, PA) tried to hold back the onslaught, making a season-high 17 saves. RIC junior goalkeeper Krissie Pyzynski (Bristol, CT) made one save to earn her first win of the year.

 

In upcoming action, Rhode Island College will play at Clark on Saturday, Sept. 8 at 3:30 p.m.
