EC Athletics Weekly Recap: September 11 through September 18

As the Emmanuel College Saints start their athletic season both men’s and women’s soccer capture more wins than losses. The same cannot be said for women’s volleyball who have gotten off to a rocky start this year.

Men’s Soccer: 3-2-1

  • 4-1 loss to Wentworth Institute of Technology Leopards (9/13/16)
  • 2-0 win against the Newbury College Nighthawks (9/17/16)

On Saturday’s game against the Newbury College Nighthawks, Saints goal keeper Jonathan Ferrarini ’20 gave  himself a great birthday gift; his first college career shutout win! He had help from Colin O’Donnell ’17 who scored his sixth goal of the season in the first half. O’Donnell scored in the 44th minute when the Saints marched down the field and set up the ball a perfect ball in the air for a head shot by O’Donnell. While in the second half, Justin Conner ’20 scored his first goal of his EC career on a 30 yard goal into the middle of the net.

Women’s Soccer: 3-5

  •  3-0 win against Fitchburg State University Falcons (9/13/16)
  •  4-0 win against Curry College Colonels (9/15/16)
  •  1-0 loss to Lasell College Boomers (9/17/16)

The Woman’s Soccer team had quite the week, which was lead by goalie Victoria LaRoche’s incredible performances. She had two shutout performances to lead her team to back-to-back victories Tuesday and Thursday. LaRoche is helping this team try to gain some lost ground after a rocky first couple of games. In her last four game she has only given up one goal. Along with LaRoche, forward Courtney Freadman ’17 has been on quite the hot streak as well, scoring three goals in her last two games.

Womens Volleyball: 2-10
  • 3-2 loss to the Keene State College Owls (9/13/16)
  • 3-1 loss against the Plymouth State Panthers (9/14/16)
  • 3-2 win against the Maine Maritime  (9/16/16)

The lady Saints volleyball team had a tough week falling to 2-10 on the season. Although, most of their losses are extremely close. So, there is a bright side for the future for this team.
