LAURIE’S TWO GOALS LEAD RIC PAST BEACONS, 4-1
Anchorwomen Open Little East Play With Victory

Boston, MA—Senior forward Lindsay Laurie (Warwick, RI) scored two goals, including the game-winner, to lead the Rhode Island College women’s soccer team past UMass Boston, 4-1, on Saturday afternoon. The Anchorwomen even their record at 2-2-1 overall, hile raising their Little East Conference mark to 1-0. The Beacons fall to 2-4 overall and 0-1 in the LEC.

 

Rhode Island College got on the board in the 16th minute as senior forward Brittney Godbout (Cranston, RI) scored her first goal of the season by knocking in her own rebound. Laurie took a cross pass from senior midfielder Krista MacKinnon (Exeter, RI) to score the decisive marker in the 17th minute. RIC went into half-time with a 2-0 advantage. Junior goalkeeper Krissie Pyzynski (Bristol, CT) did not have to make a save in 45 minutes of action to earn her second win (2-1-1) of the season.

 

Pyzynski gave way to freshman Maddie Pirri (Bristol, RI) who played the remainder of the game. Senior forward Jessica Cardinal (Harrisville, RI) was set up for her second goal of the season by classmate Gina Calenda (Warren, RI) in the 65th minute. Laurie put the icing on the proverbial cake in the 70th minute with her second tally.

 

The Beacons spoiled the shutout bid as Katherine Wall scored with under eight minutes left in regulation. Courtney Haroules played just over 70 minutes in net, making nine saves, while allowing three goals. She gave way to Ashley McRoberts who allowed Laurie’s team-leading third goal of the season. McRoberts made four stops in 19:20 of action.

 

The Anchorwomen carried the play offensively, outshooting UMB, 26-5.
