THE RUNDOWN:  

  • Emma Dineen scored in the 85th minute to lift the Babson College women's soccer team to a 4-3 victory over Wheaton this afternoon at Hartwell-Rogers Field. The Lyons drop to 7-2-1 overall, while Babson picks up their first NEWMAC win of the year.

  • Wheaton scored the first goal of the contest, a Chloe Troy header from Kyla Magalhaes at 3:09, but found themselves trailing, 3-1, after three Babson conversions in a 12:35 minute span to close out the first half. 
  • Nearly 16:37 scoreless minutes had elapsed to start the second period before Aymara-O'Brien Pappalardo buried a penalty kick past Kayla Salmon to pull the Lyons within one. 
  • O'Brien-Pappalardo found Kenza Farid 6:24 minutes later for the tying header goal at 68:01. 
  • The teams went back and forth from there, trading two shots each before the game-winner was deposited at 84:21. Wheaton outshot the Beavers, 15-13, collectively, and also edged the hosts 7-6 in corner kicks. 
  • Alexa Barbagallo collected four saves in the loss, while Salmon brings home a win after stopping four as well.
