The Rams’ women’s soccer team crushed the Mass. Maritime Buccaneers 5-0 at home Sept. 28.
Stephanie Beaumont scored the first goal of the game in the middle of the first half, also securing her first goal of the season.
“When that ball went in the net, I wasn’t sure what to feel. … It was an incredible feeling to score the first goal of the game, and having my teammates running up to celebrate with me made it 10 times better,” Beaumont said.
Six minutes later, Erin Angelillo scored off an assist from Camryn O’Leary, bagging her first goal after being out with a concussion for the beginning of the season.
“I was nervous to be on the field again because I know another concussion would be devastating for me, but I was so excited when I scored. … I really think our season hit a turning point in this game, and I’m ready to see where we go next,” Angelillo said.
The Rams continued their momentum in the second half with an early goal by Kaleigh Pallotta off an assist from Beaumont, giving them a comfortable lead by 3.
Two additional goals late in the game by Jasmine Lees and Laura Kozlowski allowed the team to secure their 5-0 victory.
The Rams totaled 36 shots on net for the game and only allowed five shots on their own goal by the Bucs.
This brings women’s soccer to 2-5-1 for the season, but they are currently 2-0 in the MASCAC.
“We are the only undefeated team in the MASCAC right now. There are no words to describe how proud I am of my team. Everyone plays for each other, and it shows on the field,” Beaumont said.
