Looking to rebound from three consecutive losses, the Rams traveled to New Hampshire on Sept. 12 to take on the Daniel Webster Eagles.

This was a non-conference matchup for the Rams, who came out of the gates quickly, scoring a goal in the 13th minute of the game.

Senior Cory Cardeiro scored the goal, his third of the season, giving the Rams a 1-0 lead early over the Eagles.

This lead would stand until well after half- time, when the Eagles finally tied up the game in the 77th minute. The goal came from Chasen Congreves, a junior defenseman for the Eagles.

Wasting no time, the Eagles quickly rallied for another goal, this time it was junior Mar- cos Vieira Filho in the 79th minute making it 2-1 Daniel Webster, just like that.

In between this rapid succession of goals for the Eagles, a key moment in the game happened, a red card was given to an Eagle player, disqualifying him from further action.

With just ten minutes to play, down a goal and up a man, the Rams needed to rally fast. Sure enough, Rams junior Corey Sousa did just that, in the 84th minute, answering a pair of Eagle’s goals with his first of the season ty- ing the game at 2-2.

Then just 48 seconds later, the Rams struck again. This time it was sophomore Michael Bean who scored his first goal of the season. The goal gave the Rams a 3-2 lead, which they held on to for the remainder of the game. In the win, Rams goalkeeper Josh Arno, had an astounding 19 saves.

The Rams took the field again on Sept. 15 against Gordon College in a home match.

The game was uneventful for the first 35 minutes, until Gordon College senior Evan Crocker won the ball in his offensive half and took off for a break away.

Crocker shot the ball low and to the left beating Rams keeper Arno, and giving the Scotts a 1-0 in the 35th minute.

This lead would hold up for the rest of the game, giving the Scotts a 1-0 win over the Rams.

In the loss, Cardeiro led the Rams with four shots and Arno had five saves.

The Scotts led the shot battle 20-12 over the Rams and also had four more corner kicks. With one win and one loss in the week, the Rams move to 1-4 on the season.
