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.
