EC Athletics Recap: 9/10 – 9/17

Fall sports are in full swing. With about one month left in the regular season, the Saints are looking to each improve their records and compete for playoff contention.

Men’s and Women’s Cross Country:

The Saints competed in the Bowdoin Invitational on September 16. Both the men and women finished 6th in team races with some notable performances from Stephanie Forester ’21 who finished in 20:37 and Patrick Carty ’20, who finished the 8k course in just 27:58. Both of these athletes were EC’s first finishers in this week’s race. Both teams will run again this weekend for the Codfish Bowl race at Franklin Park starting at 11 A.M.

Women’s Soccer (2-4-1):

The women competed in 2 games this past week with a 2-1 win against St. Joseph’s on September 13 and 1-1 tie against Simmons on September 16. The Monks scored late on Wednesday, but it wasn’t enough to stop Abba Mckenelley ’20 from scoring twice to lift the Saints to the win. Both the Sharks and Saints were held to 1 goal each, and ended in a tie for the first time. The Saints will be back on Wednesday, September 20, playing against UMass Boston on Clemente Field at 7 P.M.

Men’s Soccer (0-4-2):

It was a hard fought game for the Saints against Newbury College last Monday with two late goals from William Burdick ’20 and Cameron Messier ’18, but Newbury was able to pull out the win in overtime. The Saints went on to play Wentworth on Wednesday, and came out with a 5-0 loss on Sweeney Field. They went on to 0-0 stalemate against Rivier University on Saturday. The Saints will be back in action on Tuesday as they host Lasell College, looking for their first win of the season.

Women’s Volleyball (3-6):

It was a one loss, one win week for EC Women’s volleyball against Plymouth and Anna Maria. In their win, Mary Shelow ’19 shined yet again, leading the Saints with 20 kills. They’ll be going up against UMass Dartmouth on Andy Yosinoff Court this Tuesday, September 19.

Men’s Golf:

There were a couple notable performances from Anthony Springthorpe ’19, who shot an 83 for a career-low, and Colin Cordero ’18 who shot an 87. Overall, the team finished 4th on Tuesday, and will be back in action this Wednesday, September 20, to host the Emmanuel Invitational at William J. Devine Golf Course at Franklin Park.
