UMass Boston (3-12-2)
Bridgewater State U. (6-5-4)
HOW IT HAPPENED
Despite a 17 save performance by Alyssa Fugiel (Easthampton, Mass.) the Beacons could not overcome the early deficit. Freshman Gigi Braga (Medford, Mass.) led the Beacons offense with her four shots, two on goal, in the non-conference loss.
Alana Vincent got the Bears on the board in the 6th minute as she knocked-in a pass that crossed into the middle of the box. Eleven minutes later it was Nicole Simas who managed to get behind the Beacons defense which allowed her to knock in the Bears second tally of the night.
On the night, the Bears totaled 32 shots, with 19 ending up on goal. Bridgewater State also held a 10-4 advantage in corner kicks as well.
BY THE NUMBERS
- All-time UMass Boston is now 5-1-1 against Bridgewater State
- Fugiel has now recorded back-to-back games with a season high 17 saves
The Beacons will host Keene State College on Saturday at 5 p.m. in their final regular season conference game.
