HOW IT HAPPENED
It was all SJC from the get go as they maintained possession of the ball over the first set of 45 minutes not allowing the blue-and-gold to get one shot off and building a two-goal lead while doing so.
The Monks managed to score within the first four minutes out of the locker room to push its cushion to three.
The Rams looked to rally and had three chances. Carley Pearce's was blocked by the Monks' defense, one of Caleigh O'Brien's went wide and the other found Adia Grogan's gloves to keep Suffolk off the scoreboard.
