Framingham State took home its second win of the season, and first win in the LEC on Oct. 3, with a victory over Salem State.
Cady Kelly took a shot on Salem’s net, but it was rebounded into the possession of Bailey Donnelly, who scored and put Framingham on the board first.
SSU’s Taylor Nawn shut down a two-on-one breakaway from Hannah Carnes and Kirsten Terrien before they could reach the net.
But Carnes wasn’t taking no for an answer, and came back strong, scoring off of a one-timer from Amie Souza, giving the Rams their 2-0 lead.
After the half, the Vikings came back into the game strong with a goal from Kelsey Russell. But that was the only point they would get on the board.
Nawn scored another goal for SSU, tying the game up, but it was disallowed due to a penalty.
The Rams held off the Vikings for the remainder of the game, resulting in a final score of 2-1 Framingham. With the win, the Rams improve their record to 2-7 and 1-4 in the LEC.
The Rams traveled to UMass Dartmouth on Oct. 7, where they lost in a shutout.
