HOW IT HAPPENED
Curry controlled the majority of the contest, even outshooting the Rams, 17-1, over the first 45 minutes, but all that it came down two were the last 120 seconds.
Just under two minutes to play, the ball entered the Colonels zone from the left to the top of the box where Whipple set up a nice give-and-go with junior Alexandra Nagri. The sophomore midfielder slotted it past Curry's keeper Morgan Stott to break open the scoreless non-conference contest.
Suffolk held off a last a last minute push from the Colonels to capture the 1-0 victory, the Rams third straight.
