Gorham, Maine--Freshman attacker Tess Bradley (Tiverton, RI) scored two goals as Rhode Island College saw its season come to an end in a 20-2 loss to Southern Maine in Little East Conference women’s lacrosse action played at Hannaford Field on Saturday afternoon.

Pelligrinelli scored five times and dished out five assists for the second 10-point game of her career.  Pelligrinelli shares the single-game scoring record with former teammate Jacki Kelly.

 

Junior Sam Campobasso (Buxton, ME) complemented Pelligrinelli, netting seven points on three goals and four assists. Classmate Lauren Lessard (Lewiston, ME) added three goals and one assist. Freshmen Hannah LaSalle (Humarock, MA) and Meghan Bishop (North Bennington, VT) and senior Shauna Robert (Lyman, ME) scored two goals apiece.
