Women's Soccer Falls to CCC Rival Roger Williams, 4-1

BRISTOL, R.I—The Roger Williams University Women's Soccer team defeated Curry College Tuesday night 4-1 in a Commonwealth Coast Conference matchup.

The Hawks entered the game second in the CCC standings, trailing Endicott College by three goals.

Both squads sported pink warmup shirts in honor of all of those who have been affected by breast cancer. Each Hawk dedicated their performance Tuesday to someone whom battled cancer.

The Hawks dominated ball possession in the first minutes of the half, with two quality shots that just missed the goal. Curry's physical, tight defense allowed the Hawks to make long passes downfield for breakaway opportunities.

The first goal of the game came in the 16th minute with a lob pass from Alli Santacroce (Burlington, Conn.) to Arianna Delli Carpini (Bedford Hills, N.Y.) whom was crashing to the middle. Goalie Kristen Buzzotta came out of the net and challenged Carpini but the ball bounced in for a goal. This was Carpini's third goal of the season.

Curry managed to send the ball into RWU territory for a brief moment, but the Hawks managed to hold the Colonels to only two shots in the first half.

Jodie Lavigne (Coventry, R.I.) had an open opportunity near the close of the first half when Ericca Broderick (Great Barrington, Mass.) passed to the middle to a sprinting Lavigne. Lavigne had to stop and change directions which led her to shooting just high of the crossbar.

The Hawks came out in the second half in control with a shot by Raleigh LeMiere-Barnes (Los Angeles, Calif.) in the 1st minute. The shot headed for the top left corner but was saved by Buzzotta.

The Colonels tied up the game on a quick breakaway in the 11th minute by Tayla Randall.

The Hawks answered quickly to take back the lead less than a minute after Randall's goal. Carpini scored her second goal of the game on a rebound. The assist went to Ali Waxgiser (Harding, N.J.).

Carpini scored her third goal of the night with just under 33 minutes left. Waxgiser gave a quick pass to a curring Carpini whom scored just a few feet away from a diving goalie.

Samantha Woznicki (Bristol, Conn.) added to the Hawks' lead with a header that found the back of the net. The assist was granted to Kasey Provost (Peabody, Mass.) whom took the corner kick.

The Hawks outshot the Colonels (8-4-3, 1-2-2 CCC) 31 to 6. Natalie O'Donovan received the win and her record improved to 6-5-2.

With the win, RWU (7-6-2, 4-0-1 CCC) is tied with Endicott for first place in the CCC standings. The Hawks will face off against Wentworth Institute of Technology Saturday afternoon in Boston, Mass. in another conference matchup. The Hawks look to secure a top spot in the CCC standings with only five regular season games left.  Curry hosts CCC opponent Endicott College on Saturday at 2:00 p.m. (Game Recap Courtesy of Roger Williams Sports Information)
