Women’s soccer blows past competition

Wednesday night the Lady Rams travelled to Mass. Maritime Academy for their third game of the season, and spent the bus ride back to Boston celebrating their ten point shutout of the Buccaneers.

Coming off their wrenching 1-0 loss to Fitchburg State College in double overtime just four nights prior, the Rams spent their practices improving on attacking and offensive execution.

The results were immediate, as it took only 27 seconds before an assist from junior Caleigh O’Brien led to a goal from junior Liv Hurley. By the end of the night, Hurley had her first career hat trick and O’Brien scored four for the second time as a Ram and assisted on one.

Juniors Addiysn Lanza and Leto Katsoufis scored a goal and assisted on one respectively, while sophomores Carley Pearce and Julia Hunt assisted on two goals with Hunt chipping in a goal of her own.

Sophomore Jackie Kelly scored her first career goal on a beautiful free kick that sailed passed the outstretched hands of the goalie.

The Rams totally dominated the entirety of the game, outshooting the Buccaneers 35-4.. Sophomore Allison Rodrigues recorded her sixth career shutout, and second this season.

The Rams improved their all time record against Mass. Maritime to 6-0 with Wednesday’s win. The Lady Rams also improved to 2-1 on the season, the first time since 2016.

Suffolk looks to keep this momentum rolling to Saturday where they will be taking on Simmons University at home at noon. Simmons, who will walk into East Boston Memorial Park hungry for their first win, will be the Ram’s first taste of GNAC competition.
