MILTON, Mass. — Curry College’s Briana Fitzsimmons scored in the 63rd minute to tie the game as the Colonels and the University of New England played to a 1-1 double-overtime tie in Commonwealth Coast Conference women’s soccer action Friday afternoon at Walter M. Katz Field.
The draw was the first time UNE (7-3-1, 4-0-1 CCC) had not been victorious in conference play. Curry now stands at 6-5-2 overall, 1-3-1 in CCC matches.
