North Dartmouth, Mass.-Junior attacker Molly Voyer (Lincoln, RI) scored five goals as the Rhode Island College women’s lacrosse team ended the 2011 season in a 15-11 loss to UMass Dartmouth in Little East Conference action played at Cressy Field.

 

Despite being the odd team out for the upcoming 2011 Little East Tournament, the Anchorwomen (5-9, 0-6 LEC) conclude the season with the most victories for the program in six years.

Junior attacker Nicky Drolet (Somersworth, NH) and freshman attacker Ashley Signoriello (Cranston, RI) scored two apiece. Freshman goalkeeper Taryn Carbone (Cranston, RI) made 19 saves in the loss (5-9). Junior defender Jenna Childs (Cranston, RI) added a goal, an assist and five ground balls, while freshman defender Sam Nolte (Cranston, RI) picked up seven ground balls.

 

UMass Dartmouth senior midfielder Stephanie Kinchla (Falmouth, MA) had a game to remember, becoming only the second Corsair women's lacrosse player to score as many as eight goals in a game.

 

Kinchla, who joined UMD's all-time leading scorer, Katelyn Elliott, in scoring as many as eight times in a game, scored the first two goals of the game, then scored with 17:19 left in the first half, and again at 7:45 to give UMass Dartmouth a lead they would never relinquish. In the second half, she scored consecutive goals at 25:07 and 23:32 to make it 11-7, tallied at 17:32 to give the Corsairs a 13-7 advantage, and finished UMD's scoring with 3:15 remaining to make it 15-10.

 

Sophomore attacker Brittany Enos (East Falmouth, MA) and senior midfielder Larissa Basque (Plainville, MA) each scored twice for UMD (5-9, 1-4 LEC). Sophomore goalkeeper Angelina Donovan (Medford, MA) made 19 saves for the hosts.
