In their first game of the week, the Anchorwomen dominated the field with their 5-3 lead against Dean College.  Junior midfielder, Olivia Carpraro scored their first goal, putting them on the board at the 19:13 mark. Freshman midfielder Brooke Young scored the Anchorwomen’s second goal of the game in the 30th minute, allowing RIC the advantage.

At 32:49, Dean responded and scored a goal tying the game. Junior forward Elena Coutu scored another goal for the Anchorwomen in the second half of the game, giving them the lead once again. The fourth goal came from junior forward Brittany DeGrooth, who had an insurance goal from a penalty kick. Finally, senior Stephanie Ricci scored the final goal of the game securing the win for the Anchorwomen.

The Anchorwomen were hoping for a second win this week but fell short against Framingham State. In the 2-1 loss, Ricci was able to put one goal on the board for RIC. Sophomore goalie Erica Edwards made 10 saves in the game despite the loss.

With a current record of 2-5, the Anchorwomen will travel to Lesley University on Thursday Sept. 28.
