THE LEAD:
Despite a scrappy effort from the Dean College Bulldogs, the visiting Anchormen from Rhode Island College contolled play and converted their opportunities, defeating the hosts 5-0 at Longley Field on Wednesday. 

HOW IT HAPPENED

  • The Anchormen got on the scoreboard in the fifth minute when Soleil Galagarza scored unassisted to give the visitors a 1-0 advantage. 
  • Back and forth action ensued for the next 27 minutes before forward Brttany Degrooth buried her first marker of the day (also unassisted) to give the visitors a 2-0 lead.
  • Dean locked down the RIC offensive effort for the remainder of the half and trailed 2-0 at the halftime break.
  • Degrooth struck again early in the second half, this time finishing a beautiful chip shot around Bulldog goaltender Jennifer Jacovino (Monroe, Conn.) off a feed from Breanne Ford.
  • Olivia Capraro scored two goals, both assisted by Degrooth, six minutes apart to put the game out of reach. 

INSIDE THE NUMBERS:

  • Degrooth dominated the action, launching 14 shots (nine on goal) and scoring two goals while also dishing out two assists. 
  • Capraro chipped in two goals while Galagarza netted the other. 
  • Jacovino starred in the goal for the Bulldogs, making 25 saves.
