BOSTON – The Suffolk women's soccer team fell in a 4-0 shutout to Simmons in GNAC play Saturday afternoon at Daly Field.
SCORE: Suffolk 0, Simmons 3
RECORDS: Suffolk (4-6-0, 2-3-0 GNAC) | Simmons (4-5-1, 3-2-0 GNAC)
HOW IT HAPPENED
After a scoreless first half, Simmons scored in the first 10 minutes of the second stanza to take a 1-0 advantage. The lead quickly blossomed to 2-0 four minutes later and the Sharks tacked on their third goal at the 75th minute mark to jump ahead by three. Pushing for a comeback, Suffolk had one shot turned away and two hitting the net – first Jennifer Martin's attempt hit the crossbar, before Alexandra Nagri hit the post. The Rams were unable to score in the right net, however, as the blue-and-gold gave Simmons another goal at 87:04 for the final 4-0 score.
KEEPING UP WITH THE KEEPERS
- Julie Fieldsend earned her first collegiate start in between the pipes for the Rams. The freshman keeper made 11 saves in the setback.
