HOW IT HAPPENED
Despite being outshot by the Pride, 6-3, in the first half, the Falcons headed into halftime with a one-goal advantage as Andrews scored her eighth goal of the season with less than 10 minutes remaining in the stanza. Junior Katherine Raposo (Warwick, R.I.) fed Andrews the long ball earning her fifth assist of the season.
The Falcons had several close chances to double their advantage in the second half, as Raposo started off the frame with four straight shot attempts, including two shots on goal, while Maddy Rowe (Branford, Conn.) added one of her own.
Regis also had several chances to even the score, but solid defensive work by the Falcons kept the Pride off the scoreboard for the remainder of the game.
