Pride Too Much for Eagles
Poultney, VT – Regis College converted on seven free position shots and many other scoring opportunities as the Pride easily pushed past Green Mountain College in a non-conference matchup on Saturday afternoon. The win ups the Pride's record to 8-4, while the Eagles' losing skid hits four games and drops the team's record to 2-7.
Teresa Busiek (Arlington, MA) scored on back-to-back free position shots to open the scoring for the Pride. Corinne Colpitts (Groveland, MA) brought the Eagles to within one at 2-1 with an unassisted goal at the 24:48 mark of the first half. From that point forward, however, the Pride would open up a six-goal lead by scoring five unanswered goals in a fifteen minute span.
Lara Baxter (Maybrook, NY) and Johanna Douglas (Essex, CT) would score the next two goals and allow GMC to inch itself back into the game at 7-3. Unfortunately for the Eagles, that would be the last goals the team would score until the dying seconds of the game as the Pride went on an 11-goal run to remove any comeback aspirations the Eagles may have had.
Busiek and Grace Politis (Billerica, MA) were the offensive juggernauts for the visitors as the duo would combine for 14 of the 19 goals for the Pride. Busiek proved efficient scoring eight goals on eleven shots while Politis scored her six goals on eight shots. Adena Joseph (Stoughton, MA) and Andrea Barbosa (Taunton, MA) both notched two goals each to assist the offense.
Douglas was the Eagles' top scorer potting two goals on the afternoon. Colpitts added an assist in addition to her goal in the first half.
Meghan Ryan (Stow, MA) earned the victory in net for the Pride pushing her record to 6-3 on the year, while Ginny Anderson (Silver Spring, MD) took the loss to fall to 2-7.
Green Mountain will be back on the field on Wednesday, April 18th, as it hosts North Atlantic Conference (NAC) East foe Colby-Sawyer in a match-up scheduled to start at 4:00 p.m. The Pride will be idle until next Saturday the 21st, when they finish up their schedule against Mass. Maritime, with first draw slated to start at 12:30 p.m.
