|Curry College||University of New England|
BIDDEFORD, Maine — Katie Beaudoin (Coventry, R.I.) netted a goal in each half as the University of New England picked up a 2-1 victory over Curry College in Commonwealth Coast Conference (CCC) women’s soccer action Wednesday evening (Oct. 18) at Barbara J. Hazard Field.
With the win, the Nor’easters (7-7-2, 2-3-2 CCC) move ahead of the Colonels (8-6-3, 1-4-2 CCC) in the league standings entering the final two regular-season contests.
Beaudoin notched the game-winner in the 67th minute, when she settled a header clearance to herself at the top of the box and rifled a left-footed blast bending away from the keeper inside the left post. [Watch] Beaudoin now has six goals in the last three matches, and 13 on the year.
Beaudoin’s first goal came in the 9th minute as she corralled the corner kick from Jessie Maywalt (Wall, N.J.) and poked it into the lower right corner of the net.
Curry’s lone tally evened things in the 21st minute, when Samantha McGrath (Carver, Mass.) and Cassandra Grasso (Wilmington, Mass.) sent Soleil Galagarza (Pawtucket, R.I.) up the middle and Galagarza arced a left-footed shot under the crossbar from just inside the box.
The visitors nearly took the lead in the 60th minute, as Galagarza put one off the post. The rebound fell to Grasso, but her shot attempt was denied by a diving effort from UNE goalie Emily Ashman (Madison, Conn.).
Ashman totaled seven saves for UNE to pick up the win, while her counterpart, Kristen Buzzotta (Lynnfield, Mass.), had eight stops for the Colonels.
UNE wraps up its home schedule on Saturday (12 p.m.), hosting league-leading Endicott College (6-0-1 CCC).
