Cantrall Leads Women's Soccer Past Eastern Connecticut, 2-0

Delaney Cantrall Springfield, Mass. - September 6, 2008 – A pair of second half goals was all the Springfield College women’s soccer team needed to top Eastern Connecticut, 2-0, at a rain-soaked Irv Schmid Sports Complex.

With the win, the Pride move to 2-0 while the Warriors drop to 2-1.

In a match hampered by constant rain and gusts of winds, the Pride and Warriors battled to a scoreless first half. With very sloppy conditions, both teams struggled to find their rhythm.

Springfield finally netted the first goal of the game with 47:58 on the clock off a free-kick opportunity. From 30 yards out on the right hand side, Delaney Cantrall (Santa Paula, Calif.) lofted a high cross into the box. Courtney Price (Enfield, Conn.), a 5-10 sophomore, rose up above everyone else and headed the ball past the Eastern Connecticut keeper.

Cantrall added her second assist of the night as her corner kick with 29:46 left in the game found the head of Nicole Hanewich (Smithfield, R.I.). Hanewich flicked the ball just inside the near post to give the home team a two-goal advantage.

Sue Jenney (Agawam, Mass.) posted her second consecutive shutout as she recorded four saves. Kim Church stopped five shots in the loss for ECSU.

The Pride return to action on Tuesday afternoon when it travels down the road to take on local-rival Western New England. Kick-off is slated for 4:00 pm.

Utica 2, Westfield State 0
In the first game of the second game of the Springfield College Invitational, Utica netted a pair of goals in the second half en route to a 2-0 win over Westfield State.

Ashley Granger led the way for the Pioneers with a pair of goals in very rainy conditions at the Irv Schmid Sports Complex. Her first goal, coming at 46:02 was assisted by teammate Kelly Regan, while her second mark came at the 63:52 mark.

Danielle Smith made seven saves in goal as she recorded the shutout in a rare appearance between the pipes.
