Pilgrims shutout by Keene State in opener
New England College women’s soccer struggled on offense as the Pilgrims fell to in-state opponent Keene State 0-5 Wednesday evening in Keene.
Keene would net two goals in the second half of play, including one with just under five minutes remaining in regulation, to cruise to the 5-0 victory.
The Keene offense would dominate play throughout the evening out shooting the Pilgrims 45-0. NEC keeper Kerry Hughes (Wallkill, N.Y.) would have a busy night finishing the evening with 15 saves.
The Pilgrims return to action on Saturday, Sept. 5 when they travel to take on Plymouth State at 1:00 p.m. NEC opens their home schedule on Sunday, Sept. 6 when they host Emmanuel College at 1:00 p.m.
