Field Hockey Falls to Regis 3-2

WESTON, Mass. – The Pride of Regis College rallied from a 2-0 deficit to down the AMCATS 3-2 on Tuesday night. The game winner was tallied by freshman Ashley Chipman (Stoughton, Mass.) who notched her first collegiate goal with 11:20 remaining on the clock.

With the win, the Pride improves to 3-4 on the season, while the loss drops the AMCATS to 4-6.
 

HOW IT HAPPENED

The AMCATS stole an early 2-0 lead but The Pride did not let up as they tightened the lead to 2-1 with a goal before halftime. Regis came into the second half firing as they tallied two more goals and shut down the AMCAT offense.

Anna Maria dominated the statistics corner with 17 shots to The Pride's 12 and eight penalty corners to their two. It was Regis who came out on top with 12 shots on goal while the AMCATS produced 11 shots on goal.
 

SCORING

Anna Maria came out to a flying start, as AMCAT senior Kaitlyn Moran (Leicester, Mass.) opened the scoring just 1:49 into the contest. Moran worked her way to the top of the area before firing a shot past Regis goalkeeper Maresa Malcolm (Barrington, N.J.).

Moran tacked on another goal just under 11 minutes later, when she beat Malcolm on a penalty stroke. Using a head fake to get the keeper down, Moran lifted a lob shot over the falling Malcolm to give Anna Maria a 2-0 lead just 12:30 into the game. Moran's second goal of the game was her team-leading 14th of the season.
Pride sophomore Aineen Callahan (Diamond Point, N.Y.) got the hosts on the board exactly six minutes later, when she netted her fifth goal of the season on a rebound. After teammate Mackenzie Cattaruzza (Guilford, Conn.) fired a shot on goalkeeper Bryanna Tobin (Deep River, Conn.), Callahan scooped up the loose ball and buried it to cut the lead in half.
 
Anna Maria took a 2-1 lead into halftime, but Callahan's second goal of the game at 42:40 evened the score early in the second half. The midfielder scooped up her own rebound and beat Tobin to tie the game at two.
 

With the two sides splitting chances at both ends, it was the Pride who broke the deadlock late in the game. After a scramble in front of the net, it was Chipman who pushed the ball over the goal line to put Regis on top. The goal would hold up as the game-winner, earning the Pride its second consecutive win.

GOALKEEPERS

Malcolm finished the game with 13 saves to pick up her third win of the season, while senior defender Carla Brito (Madeira, Portugal) was credited with a defensive save when she swept what appeared to be an equalizing goal off the line in the final minutes. For the AMCATS, Tobin finished with eight saves.

 

WHAT'S NEXT?

Anna Maria will host a GNAC showdown against Lasell College on Thursday evening at 5:00 p.m. in their next game. The Pride travels to Bay Path University on Saturday  for a 10:00 a.m.
