Eagles Outgunned By Crusaders
The Crusaders out-shot the Eagles 38-19 (32-14 shots on goal) and edged them in the ground-ball category (29-19) and draw controls (14-7).
Eastern’s Caleigh Falco and Anna Charlebois each scored three goals. Shannon Wilcox and Ariana Borreggine also scored a goal. Borreggine’s goal was her first as an Eagle.
McReynolds upped her season save total to 33 after today’s performance.
The last time an Eastern goalie recorded 20 or more saves was May 9, 2007, when Jenn Van Ness picked up 20 saves against Mary Washington in the first round of the NCAA tournament.
The Eagles were called for 14 fouls that resulted in free-position shots for the Crusaders on Wednesday, but they only allowed 4 goals out of those 14 attempts. McReynolds saved eight Alvernia free-position shots.
Alvernia jumped to a 5-0 first half lead, but Eastern got on the board with 17:05 to play in the first half with Ariana Borreggine's tally.
Anna Charlebois then scored two goals in a row, but Alvernia responded with four goals to close out the half, including two free-position goals with under a minute remaining. Eastern trailed 9-3 entering the locker room.
The Eagles outscored the Crusaders 5-3 in the second half with Caleigh Falco scoring three of those times, but couldn't score enough to complete the comeback.
Eastern (2-3) is right back at it on Saturday when they host Neumann University at 1 p.m.
