The ENC women’s soccer team won their first conference game of the year against Salve Regina on Saturday, Sept. 20.

The women defeated Salve 4-1 with three goals from sophomore Hannah Scahill (Quaker Hill, Conn.) and one goal from senior Jules Speno (Hopewell Junction, N.Y.).

Women’s soccer now holds a 4-6 overall record and a 1-1 conference record as the team heads into the bulk of the conference games.

The men’s soccer team holds no conference wins thus far, holding a 0-2 record with their most recent loss to Salve Regina this past Saturday.

Despite their conference losses, the men’s team has been luckier in their non-conference play. Last Tuesday, they gained a big victory over Becker, ending the game in a 6-1 win, and they currently hold a 4-3 overall record.

“I love the way that our new players have stepped up and made plays for us, and I feel that we have good leadership from our returners as well,” senior Will Campbell (Anchorage, Alaska) commented, “Hopefully we can keep up the good play, and continue to get some wins.”

The women’s soccer team has been in many close matches, going to overtime in two, each of which had been decided by one goal.

“We have to find a way to get things rolling in our favor,” junior Kristen Farley (Westminster, Mass.) noted, “We have been playing [well] but have been coming up short lately.  The team has been working hard, and with a few adjustments I believe that we can change our fortunes and begin to put some wins together.”

The men’s team will play a non-conference home match against Suffolk on Wednesday, Sept. 24 at 4:30 p.m.

The women’s team plays next on Saturday, Sept. 27 at noon against conference opponent University of New England at Veteran’s Memorial Stadium.
