Maritime Falls to Rhode Island College

PROVIDENCE R.I. (April 8, 2010) The Maritime women's lacrosse team lost on the road to Rhode Island College, 18-6, Thursday afternoon at the Anchorwomen's Varsity Athletic Complex. The defeat drops the Privateers' record to 1-6 overall on the season, while RIC improves to an even 3-3 overall.

Maritime had five different goal scorers in the game. Sophomore-transfer Kristen Saporito (Rocky Point, N.Y.) led the team with three points, scoring one goal and tallying two assists. Senior Heather Christiansen (Baldwin, N.Y.), junior Jill Davenport (Miller Place, N.Y.) and sophomore tri-captain Catherine Brady (Holbrook, N.Y.) each tallied two goals apiece for the Privateers. Freshman Jorrie Trenkamp (Tabernacle, N.J.) rounded out the scorers for Maritime.

Senior goalie Meagan Golden (Point Pleasant, N.J.) matched the game-high in ground balls with five, and made four saves in the losing effort. Christiansen picked up four ground balls. Brady and Saporito each tallied a team-high four draw controls.

The Privateers played a tremendous second half, outscoring the Anchorwomen 4-2. However, the 14-4 first-half deficit was too large to overcome. Maritime was 2 for 7 in free position shots in the game and RIC held a 21-15 ground ball advantage.

The women's lacrosse team returns to action this Saturday, April 10, when the squad plays host to Skyline-foe Montclair State. Game time is scheduled for 1:00 p.m. at Reinhart Field.
