Last Time Out

With the game tied at 4-4 coming out of halftime, Franklin Pierce scored the second half's first two goals to take a 6-4 lead.

Merrimack scored the next two goals, but used most of the second half to do so, to tie the game at 6-6. Sophomore attack Kayla Breton (Windham, Mass.) put away a free-position shot with 13:57 to play. Junior midfielder Giulia Palombo (Sandwich, Mass.) followed up 4:50 later to tie the game, as she finished off a feed from sophomore attack Aubrie Stouffer (Souderton, Pa.).

Nicole Beville's goal gave Franklin Pierce a 7-6 lead, and it wound up being the final goal of the game. The Ravens controlled the ball for much of the final nine minutes and were able to bleed the clock down until they came away with the one-goal victory.
