Raiders shoot past Gators

CHESTNUT HILL, MA – Pine Manor was outshot 26-6, including 11-1 in the first half, in a 3-0 defeat to Rivier Wednesday night in Chestnut Hill.

             The Raiders (2-1, 1-0 GNAC) got on the board at 20:54, when Sam Provencher (Merrimack, NH/Merrimack) drew the defense to the right post and fired a pass across the goalkeeper box to a wide open Nina Seher (Nashua, NH/North), who tapped it past Pine Manor’s Coleen Tencza from point blank range in front of the left post.  Rivier fired six more shots in the half, but Tencza (South Meriden, CT/Platt) made three saves in keeping her Gators (1-2-1, 0-2 GNAC) in the game through halftime.

             Well within striking distance in the second half, the Gators mustered quality chances on net early in the frame. Beth Deegan’s (Philadelphia, PA/Little Flower) header off an Alicia Grenier corner kick fell into the hands of Raiders keeper Brittany Puleo (Hudson, NH/Alvirne) for her first save of the game at 51:27, and Grenier (Swansea, MA/Joseph Case) launched her breakaway attempt wide at 54:34.

             Minutes later, at 61:24, Rivier’s Meghan Hickey fired a high, bouncing attempt that fell feet in front of Tencza. The keeper jumped and deflected it against the crossbar, saving Hickey’s attempt from reaching the net. Staying with the play, Hickey’s teammate Amy Desimone followed the save off the crossbar and knocked the deflection into the net, putting the Raiders ahead 2-0. At 77:44, Lauren Bradshaw outraced Tencza to a loose ball in the top right of the keeper box and gave her team a 3-0 lead, essentially putting the game away.             Puleo made three saves in the shutout, including an attempt from the right corner at 75:12 from Pine Manor’s Amanda Smalley (Maple Shade, NJ/Maple Shade).

             The Gators hit the road to face Emerson Saturday afternoon at 12:30.
