Rhode Island College Women’s Soccer Score Report:

Salem, MA








Rhode Island College (9-7-1)





Salem State College (7-7-2)


Anchorwomen Rout Vikings, 4-0
Hummel Registers Second Straight Game-Winner

SALEM, MA —Freshman midfielder Chelsea Creamer (Coventry, RI) scored a season-high four points, including her first collegiate goal, to pace the Rhode Island College attack as the Anchorwomen overpowered Salem State College, 4-0, in non-conference women’s soccer action this afternoon at Alumni Field. Senior midfielder Abby Hummel (North Kingstown, RI) netted her second straight game-winning goal as the visitors raise their overall record to 9-7-1, while the Vikings slip to 7-7-2.


Rhode Island College was economical with its shots, scoring on four of the six attempts placed on net. The Anchorwomen cracked the scoring column in the 23rd minute, when Hummel recorded an unassisted goal to give the visitors the early advantage. Rhode Island College struck again three minutes later, when classmate Krista MacKinnon (Exeter, RI) accepted a feed from Creamer and deposited it in the back of the net—her third marker of the campaign. The Anchorwomen entered the intermission leading 2-0.  


The visitors continued to control the pace of the match in the second half. Senior forward Gina Calenda (Warren, RI) and Creamer each added an insurance goal to extend Rhode Island College’s winning streak to season-high four games. Freshman forward Sadhana Yoder (North Attleboro, MA) earned her first collegiate point, assisting on Calenda’s fourth goal of the season.


Freshman goalkeeper Maddie Pirri (Bristol, RI) backstopped the Anchorwomen to her fourth shutout victory of the campaign, making six saves. Pirri has held the opposition scoreless in the past four matches, a streak which spans 378:57.  She was also named the ECAC New England Defensive Player of the Week this morning by the conference office.


On the other side of the pitch, senior netminder Abby DeAngelo (Lowell, MA) collected two saves in her final home regular season game.


Rhode Island College returns to action on Oct. 27, when the Anchorwomen travel to Little East Conference rival Southern Maine (6-10, 2-4 LEC) at 1 p.m. If Rhode Island College defeats the Huskies, they will clinch the second seed in the Little East Conference Women's Soccer Tournament, receiving a bye and a home-field advantage in the semifinal round.
