BOSTON, MA - Top-seeded Emerson College (11-2, 6-0 GNAC) toppled
Saint Joseph's (6-8, 3-3), 24-7, in a Great Northeast Athletic
Conference Tournament semifinal match at Rotch Field on Wednesday
evening. Lauren Hagerman '10
(Scarborough, ME), Lizzie Farley
'11 (Scarborough, ME) and Alyssa
Marchant '11 (Wakefield, MA) scored two goals
apiece for St. Joe's in the losing effort.
Emerson rode the second-consecutive nine goal game from Meaghan Ross '11 (Wrentham, MA) to eliminate St. Joseph's College from the Great Northeast Athletic Conference Championship Tournament. The victory for the Lions places Emerson in the championship game for the second consecutive year.
Emerson's Katie Dodge '11 (West Newbury, MA) started the scoring with the game's first two goals in the first six minutes. Amy Gervis '12 (Randolph, NJ) gave Emerson a three goal margin before Marchant made the score 3-1 just over half way through the first period. Emerson stretched the lead to 7-1 with a pair of goals from Ross, Gervis' second marker of the game and a Katie Peters '11 (Acton, MA) tally.
The Lady Monks answered with goals by Abigale Pelletier '12 (Lewiston, ME), Farley and Marchant to make the score 7-4 with 14:25 remaining in the opening period.
Emerson then ran off seven straight goals to close the first half and scored the first three of the second before goals from Hagerman and Farley temporarily stopped the bleeding. Emerson was able to score four more times before Hagerman tallied her second marker of the evening. The Lions netted the last three goals of the game for the 24-7 final.
Taylor Allison '12 (Pawtucket, RI) made 13 saves in the SJC net, several from point blank range. Kristen DeTroia '12 (Bridgewater, NJ) had 10 saves for the Lions.
Emerson will host the GNAC Championship game on Saturday at 6:00pm at Rotch Field against second-seeded Norwich University in a rematch of the 2008 title game.
