The Boston Terriers defense held the Rams to just 4 shots on the game, two of which were taken by Tali O'Leary late in the 2nd half, but unfortunately neither were able to find the back of the net. The Terriers did find the back of the net early on, in the 10th minute, off a set piece on the corner kick from Jenna Oldham, it found the foot of Hugrun Helgasdottir who knocked it past Goalie Faith Hutchins for the lone score of the game. The loss marked the third straight for the Rams, all in non-conference play, which is bothersome to Head Coach Megan Jessee, but not the end of the world. As she stated in postgame, "we've gotta figure this out by conference, we've still got everything to play for there. We can still have a great season" We're so close, we have all the pieces there, we play great in segments of time during the game, we just need to put it all together for a full 45 half, a full 90 game." added Jessee. Tali O'Leary added to it that "We have an all gas, no breaks mentality, we're going for the endline all the time, we just need to focus a bit more and leave something for the final third." O'Leary said, "we need to compose a bit more, get our heads up and be willing to just take an extra touch sometimes." The Rams will travel on Thursday to Holy Cross before a weekend fixture against Princeton. The following set will see the beginning of Atlantic 10 Conference play as Davidson (9/19) and George Washington (9/23) come to South Kingstown.
