Framingham snapped its three-game skid with a 15-12 win over Mount Ida on March 30.
The Rams opened up a 6-3 lead over the Mustangs with six minutes before half time. They then expanded their lead with two goals from Morghan Casella and Mallory Fredericks to break the game open with an 8-4 lead.
The Rams used a hot start to the game by scoring 10 of their 15 goals on the day in the first half. Seven total players scored for the Rams, and six of them with multiple goals. They were led by three goals from Shae Riley and Kimberly Foley.
Rams coach James Rippey said, “We are a very young team and it’s still early in the season, but we face some tougher competition ahead and need to continue to raise our level of play.”
Framingham played a very clean and orderly game with winning the ground ball battle 23-17 and cleared a perfect 6-6. The lead grew as high as six with goals from Foley and Lindsay Nixon, to put Framingham up 15-9.
Mount Ida scored three goals in the last minute, but their efforts couldn’t change the outcome.
Rippey said, “We showed growth in some elements of our game, but overall played down to the competition and have a lot of work to do before Saturday’s league opener.”
With the win the Rams bring their record to 3-3 with their next game against Salem State on April 2.
“Saturday we play Salem State at home at 10 a.m. and it’s Accepted Students Day so there should be a good crowd,” Rippey said. “We had great fan support at last week’s home-opener versus Emmanuel.”
