Pride Use Second Half Goal to Overcome Curry

WESTON, Mass. – Regis College defeated Curry College, 3-2, in a non-conference collegiate women's soccer match Sunday afternoon at Regis Stadium, picking up their second win in as many days.

Regis came out of the gates quickly, scoring off the foot of Brianna Gaynor (Peabody, Mass.), her second goal of the season, 20 seconds into the game.  

Curry responded with a goal of their own after a pass from Madison Grafton found the foot of Tayla Randall, who shot across the net past the Pride goalkeeper into the bottom right corner in the 14th minute.

In the 27th minute, Kaylee Francis (Millis, Mass.) scored her team-leading third goal of the season, giving the Pride a 2-1 advantage heading into the break. Ori Attridge (Westwood, Mass.) recorded five saves in the first half keeping the Pride in the game as they trailed the Colonels in shots on goal, 6-2.

Just 1:24 into the second half, Jessica Gooch scored on a free kick to even the match, 2-2. That would be the only goal allowed by Angie Caldwell (Goffstown, N.H.) as she recorded her first win of the season.

The Pride scored in the 61st minute after Aria Ulmer (Henniker, N.H.) was able to connect with a shot off a corner kick to give the Pride the 3-2 lead. That would be Ulmer's first career collegiate goal.

Regis had seven shots on net in the second half to draw even with the Colonels in that category for the match at nine apiece. The Pride held a 6-3 advantage in corner kicks.

Curry (2-4) will host Plymouth State on Tuesday, Sept. 17 at 6:30 p.m. 

Regis (3-2, 1-0 GNAC) will play Rhode Island College on Tuesday, Sept. 17 at a rescheduled time of 4 p.m., two hours early than originally scheduled.  They will then wait until Saturday, Sept. 21 when they continue Great Northeast Athletic Conference (GNAC) action at Saint Joseph's College in Maine.
