On Saturday, Sept. 24, the Framingham State Rams hosted Worcester State and was shut out for only the second time this season as Worcester scored two goals to Framingham’s none.

Framingham State goalkeeper Keyonzia Gagne-Lamoureux faced eight shots all game long and saved six of them allowing two of them to reach the back of the net.

Framingham’s production continued to run through freshman Jana Paecht as she led the team in shots with four to keep the opposing defense busy. 

Framingham midfielder Kaelen Larocque led the team with two shots on goal, which were both of the shots Larocque took in the game though none made it past Worcester State keeper Vanessa Odonnell.

Framingham State was outshot 21-13 in the game but only landed four shots on goal compared to Worcester State’s eight.

The late goals allowed in games was apparent again as both Worcester State goals were scored within the final thirty minutes of the game.

Framingham State moved to 3-4-0 on the season following the loss and has now dropped two straight close games both decided by two goals or less.

The Framingham State Rams took on the Roger Williams Hawks in a tough road matchup that resulted in a crushing 5-1 loss.

The Hawks had complete control over the game early as they scored three goals within the first 40 minutes of the game to take a quick 3-0 lead.

The Rams were outshot 10-1 during this 3-0 run by the Hawks and were just blown out on the shot chart as they were outshot 25-4 in the game including being outshot 12-1 in the first and 13-3 in the second.

The Rams swapped goalies at halftime switching out starter Gagne-Lamoureux for sophomore backup Jennifer Stevens. Both goalies faced seven shots on goal with Gange-Lamoureux saving four and allowing three and Stevens saving five and allowing two.

Framingham State’s lone goal came on the foot of senior midfielder Ashley Lees and was the last goal scored by either team for the rest of the game, which would keep the Rams from suffering their second straight shutout.

Only three Rams got a shot on goal all game long compared to the Hawks’ 14. The Rams will look to get back to their winning ways when they travel to Bridgewater State to take on the 2-2-3 Bears on the first day of October.
