Babson Park, Mass.—The Babson College women’s soccer team won their second straight game defeating Rhode Island College 5-0 in a non-conference match Saturday afternoon at Hartwell-Rogers Field on the Babson College campus. Senior tri-captain Jackie Graham (Winchester, Mass.) and first-year midfielder Annie Kenney (Weston, Mass.) both contributed two goals apiece in the victory as the Beavers outshot the Anchorwomen, 33-5.

 

 

 

The Beavers’ (2-1) first goal of the game was scored by Graham in the 34th minute when she headed in a cross from teammate Kirsten Schmid (Babylon, N.Y.). Graham scored her second goal of the game just four minutes later off a pass from fellow senior tri-captain Shir Castel (Boston, Mass.). Babson improved their lead to 3-0 when Kenney scored off a corner kick from junior back Sam Bartman (Upton, Mass.) at 59:23. The Beavers would tack on two more goals in the second half when Castel scored at the 68-minute mark and Kenney put in her second goal with 15 minutes remaining to give the Babson the 5-0 triumph,

 

 

Rhode Island College (1-3) sophomore goalie Maddie Pirri (Bristol, R.I.) had 12 saves in net for the Anchorwomen. Babson College junior Sam Scarpato (Weston, Mass.) and sophomore Sarah Macary (Woodbury, Conn.) split time in goal for the Beavers.
