Eagles Drop Third Straight, Lose to SUNY Canton
CASTLETON, Vt. – Green Mountain College dropped its third straight contest, falling to SUNY Canton 17-2 in non-conference action Wednesday afternoon at Spartan Stadium.
SUNY Canton (4-4) pushed the offensive tempo throughout the game, netting its first goal less than two minutes into the game off of a Joelle Percy shot. SUNY Canton went on to score five more goals before freshman midfielder Megan Scully (Henderson, N.Y.) snagged a pass from sophomore attacker Erin McAuliffe (Hopkinton, N.H.) and blasted a shot past the Roo netminder with 18:23 left in the half to cut the score to 5-1.
The Eagles (0-3, 0-0 NAC) scored another quick goal, as senior attack Corinne Colpitts (Groveland, Mass.) scored off a free position shot less than three minutes later cut SUNY Canton's lead to 5-2. Colpitts sprinted down the right side of the field during a clearing attempt and went right to goal before being awarded a free position attempt.
The Kangaroos would dominate the rest of the contest, as they went on to score 12 unanswered goals to end the contest.
Senior goalkeeper Virginia Anderson (Silver Spring, Md.) played well in net, recording 21 saves to go along with her eight groundballs.
Tressa Goolden scored five goals for the Kangaroos while Percy and Keeley Rice each recorded three assists.
SUNY Canton owned the shot advantage, outgunning the Eagles 38-4 with shots on goal. Green Mountain struggled to handle the Kangaroos defensive pressure, as they were forced into too many turnovers in the game.
The Eagles will face-off against North Atlantic Conference rival Castleton on April 5 at 1 p.m. SUNY Canton will travel to Clarkson on April 8 for a first draw at 4 p.m.
