AMANDA daCUNHA WINS IT FOR HAWKS
IN DOUBLE OVERTIME

Providence, RI—The Rhode Island College women’s soccer team, fresh off a signature victory over Little East Conference rival Keene State this past Saturday, lost, 1-0, in double overtime to Roger Williams at the RIC Soccer Field on Columbus Day. RIC sees its record dip to 5-6-1 overall, while the Hawks win their third straight and improve to 10-3.

 

The Anchorwomen dictated the pace through the first 45 minutes, heading into halftime with a 15-5 advantage in shots. Roger Williams sophomore goalkeeper Jenny Schermerhorn (Sherborn, MA) made seven first-half saves to keep the game scoreless.

 

The Hawks turned the game around in the second half and outshot the Anchorwomen, 12-10. Both teams had chances in regulation, but neither team could find the back of the net.

 

The game nearly ended just two minutes into the first overtime as RIC senior forward Brittney Godbout (Cranston, RI) was stopped by Schermerhorn on a point blank chance. On the ensuing play, Rhode Island College senior midfielder Michaela Bileau (Woonsocket, RI) nearly put the ball in her own net on an attempted clearing pass that hit her own goal post. Play settled down after that as the game went to a second overtime period.

 

The game ended when RWU freshman midfielder Lindsey Crepeau (Englewood, CO) crossed a pass to sophomore forward Amanda daCunha (Wethersfield, CT) who fired a laser from 25-yards out that eluded RIC freshman goalkeeper Maddie Pirri (Bristol, RI) in the 104th minute. It was daCunha’s seventh goal of the season.

 

Schermerhorn made 10 saves to earn the win, while Pirri made seven stops as her record falls to 2-2. RIC held the advantage in shots, 28-21.

 

The Anchorwomen remain winless in overtime contests (0-2-1) on the season. In upcoming action, Rhode Island College will play at Bridgewater State on Wednesday, Oct. 10. Roger Williams will host Anna Maria on Oct. 10.
