Davis Powers Endicott Past UNE to Go 6-0 in CCC

BIDDEFORD, Maine -- Senior Holly Davis (Guilford, Conn.) found the back of the cage eight times to pace Endicott in a 20-9 victory over the University of New England in Commonwealth Coast Conference (CCC) action Tuesday afternoon (Apr. 16) at the Big Blue Turf.

The Gulls (9-5) remain unbeaten in conference play at 6-0, while the Nor'easters (5-8) slip back to 3-3 in league matches.

Endicott received an addition four goals from senior Kelly Tierney (South Hadley, Mass.) and three from classmate Caitlin Pratt (Bow, N.H.). Another senior, Lauren Todd (Newfields, N.H.), ended with a pair of scores to go with two assists.

Junior Rachel Campos (Shrewsbury, Mass.) tallied the remaining goal for the Gulls, while collecting a game-best six draw controls. On the day, the visiting side finished with a 21-9 advantage in that category, and a 33-18 cushion in shot attempts.

Between the pipes, junior Rachel Socolow (Westford, Mass.) made seven stops.

For UNE, sophomore Gina Newsome (Danbury, Conn.) totaled three goals and an assist, and junior Hannah Tavella (Putnam Valley, N.Y.) tossed in a pair. Junior Johanna Currier (Holderness, N.H.) scored once, grabbed two draws, and registered a game-high three caused turnovers.

First-year goalie Courtney Kendall (Waltham, Mass.) posted nine saves.

Endicott's Davis started things off with two minutes gone in the 1st half, but Newsome responded at the 26:49 mark to level the contest at 1-1. Tavella scored with 18:25 on the clock to move the hosts in front (2-1), but a goal from Tierney and both of Todd's markers sparked a string of seven unanswered to leave the Gulls up by six late in the opening 30 minutes.

After Tavella made the difference 8-3 just before halftime, EC continued to extend the gap by netting seven of the initial nine scores of the 2nd period to assume a 15-5 lead.

Both teams play CCC games at home on Saturday. The Gulls welcome in Nichols College for a 12:00 p.m. date, while the Nor'easters are set to entertain Salve Regina University (4:00 p.m.).
