LAST TIME OUT
Emmanuel's strike within the first 10 minutes of action proved to be enough as the Saints kept the Rams off the scoreboard to shutout Suffolk women's soccer, 1-0, Wednesday night in the blue-and-gold's final contest at James A. Sartori Stadium at East Boston Memorial Park of the season.
Suffolk (2-10-1, 2-8-1 GNAC) looks to wrap up its league schedule on a high note and return to the win column for the first time since Sept. 19.
Caleigh O'Brien's powerful goal scoring has propelled the Rams offensively with the sophomore scoring a team-high eight times. Julia Hunt (3g) and Addisyn Lanza (1g, 2a) have also had high offensive outings for the blue-and-gold this season.
Allison Rodrigues has played stellar in between the pipes to keep Suffolk in a lot of outings this year. The freshman keeper holds a .786 save percentage and a 1.86 goals-against average.
Norwich (6-8-1, 3-7-1 GNAC) is on a similar slide as Suffolk with the Cadets' last win coming on Sept. 14 to Anna Maria.
Despite their record, the Cadets offense has struck often this year with 36 goals and four players in double figures in points. Karyssa Lachance leads the way with 18 off nine markers. Kaila Lemmer's 15 points on six goals and three set-ups are good for second on the team with Julia Koron (5g, 1a) and Sydney Rocheville (3g, 5a) sharing third with 11 points apiece.
Three different underclassmen keepers have seen action this year for Norwich. Katie Bishop-Manning has played the majority of the time. Over 10 starts she has put together a .793 save percentage and a 1.50 goals-against average.
