Women's Soccer falls to league leading Endicott
Endicott College women’s soccer would dominate much of the offense as the Gulls would sail past the New England College Pilgrims 3-0 Wednesday afternoon. With the win the Gulls remain tied for first in the conference improving to 10-1-0 and improve to 12-4-0 overall. The loss drops the Pilgrims to 6-8-2 on the season and 4-6-1 in the conference.
NEC would contain the Endicott offense much of the opening half as keeper Kerry Hughes (Wallkill, N.Y.) would turn away the first five shots she saw. The Gulls would break the scoring drought in the 37th minute as Vanessa Caruccio (Winthrop, Mass.) would score off a cross from Colleen Pepin (Fairhaven, Mass.) giving Endicott the 1-0 halftime lead.
Endicott would extend their lead to 2-0 at the 71:07 mark as Kayla Plante (Sanford, Maine) would rebound in her own shot off the post netting her fourth goal of the season.
The Gulls would tack on another goal with just under eight minutes remaining in regulation as Kayla Corbett (Danvers, Mass.) would put in a pass from Pepin. Endicott would have another scoring opportunity late in the game on a Gull penalty kick but Hughes would come up with the save.
The Gulls would finish the game out shooting the Pilgrims 32-3 and hold the 6-0 advantage in corners.
Picking up the shutout win in net for Endicott was Amy Meuse (Saugus, Mass.) who recorded one save on the afternoon. Hughes finished the afternoon with 12 saves for NEC.
