More news about: Nichols women's team

DUDLEY, Mass. (Oct. 25) – Nichols graduate student Kaitlyn DiBuono (Auburn, Mass.) scored a goal in her final home match as Nichols defeated Albertus Magnus in a non-conference women's soccer contest played on a windy Tuesday afternoon. With the win, the Bison improve to 6-8-2 overall while the Falcons dip to 11-6.

In the first half, play was just about even while the Falcons held slim margins in shots (5-4) and corner kicks (2-1) as each keeper would be tested twice. Nichols' senior Laurel Houle (Brooklyn, Conn.) and sophomore Shelby Aminti (Pepperell, Mass.) each took aim at sophomore keeper Christina Dineson (Milford, Conn.) while Albertus Magnus' junior Kelly Marchitto (West Haven, Conn.) and sophomore Brittany Ross (Ansonia, Conn.) attempted to best junior Maureen Lynch (Holbrook, Mass.).

After the break, Marchitto and senior Sarah Boudreau (Pascoag, R.I.) fired shots at Lynch but neither made it past the keeper.  Following a shot by senior Maria DiTommaso (Rindge, N.H), DiBuono booted the ball past the falcon keeper from 18-yards out at 62:45. The Bison added another goal 7:30 later on a long cross by senior Kimberly Cummings (Woodbridge, Va.) who found first-year Alyssa Tosti (Douglas, Mass.) just in front of the net.

Lynch made four stops in the win for Nichols as Dineson collected five saves for the Falcons.

Prior to the match Houle, DiTommaso, Cummings as well as Brittany Tremont (Guilford, Conn.), Chelsea Shaughnessy (Halifax, Mass.), Jennifer Reichert (Northbridge, Mass.) and Kate Dyson (Danielson, Conn.) were recognized for their contribution to Nichols Athletics and the women's soccer program as part of Senior Day.

Both teams play in their respective conference tournament quarterfinals at 1:00 p.m. on Saturday. Nichols, the No. 7 seed, will travel to CCC-foe #2 Roger Williams while #3 Albertus Magnus hosts #6 Simmons in the GNAC tournament.
