WESTFIELD – Host Westfield State field hockey team defeated Framingham State by a score of 1-0 in Little East action Wednesday evening at Alumni Field in Westfield.
This is the seventh one-goal loss the Rams have suffered this season.
Framingham State is now 4-9 overall and 1-9 in the Conference.
Westfield State improves to 8-7 overall and 7-2 in the Conference
HOW IT HAPPENED:
- The Owls peppered the Framingham cage all night, but Framingham goalie Grace Pushor (Old Town, Maine) was up to the task, making 21 saves.
- Westfield finally broke through on its 30th, and what proved to be final, shot of the game. On the penalty corner, Corryn Moroney (South Hadley) pushed a pass towards the goal in heavy traffic, where Cheryl Latona (Granby, Conn.) buried it at the left post. It was Latona’s team-leading 10th goal of the season.
- Westfield’s defense held the fort at the other end of the field, with Bre Foley (South Hadley) coming up with a defensive save in a late barrage from the Rams, Colleen Fellows (Auburn.) deflected a hard, lifted shot out of mid-air, and then Morgan Wichmann (Granby, Conn.) stole the ball from a Framingham attacker near the top of the circle with a minute left in regulation, and the Owls were able to run out the clock to preserve the victory.
- Westfield State senior goalkeeper Riley Goulet (Marion) made four saves to earn the shutout, her third of the season.
UP NEXT: The Rams return to the field next Tuesday when they host Eastern Connecticut State in Little East Action starting at 7 p.m.
