Suffolk has traded wins and losses over the first two weeks of October to sit 7-4-0 on the year and 5-3-0 versus GNAC foes.
Caleigh O'Brien has been a critical piece to the Rams' 24-goal offensive output. The junior forward has had a hand in nearly half of the total goals, scoring seven herself and helping on four others. Addisyn Lanza has also eclipsed the double-digit point plateau with four markers and two helpers to her credit.
Allison Rodrigues has played every minute in between the posts. The sophomore has scooped up 72 saves for a .828 save percentage and a 1.31 GAA. Five of her seven wins this season have come in shutout fashion.
Albertus Magnus heads to Boston with a 7-4-1 overall record and a 4-3-1 league ledger after two straight wins – a 6-1 decision over Anna Maria and a 1-0 shutout of Regis.
The Falcons offense is the most potent in the conference at 44 goals through 12 games. The trio of Katherine Raposo (14g, 5a), Haley Andrews (8g, 8a) and Sophia Austin (6g, 8a) are the main catalyst to Albertus Magnus' scoring contingent.
Cassidy Scofield is the Falcons' go-to starting keeper. She has assembled a .798 save percentage and a 1.82 GAA in 10 starts. Sammara Streater has seen time scattered over five games with a pair of starts in which she built a .818 save percentage and a 0.70 GAA.
