HOW IT HAPPENED

Albertus Magnus opened the scoring in the 12th minute of play as senior Angelina Piccirillo (Naugatuck, Conn.) tallied her second goal of the season. Off a Falcon corner kick, the ball found the foot of senior Victoria Lavery (West Haven, Conn.), who fed a pass to Piccirillo to give the Falcons a 1-0 lead.

Twelve minutes later, the Falcons doubled their lead, as senior Amanda Montano (North Haven, Conn.) tallied her second goal of the season on a shot from the top of the box. The unassisted goal gave the Falcons a 2-0 lead, which they would carry into halftime.
