The Owls fought early on to stay ahead of Williams College, but ultimately lost 3-1. KSC goalie first-year Rachel Loseby made seven crucial saves that kept the Owls in the game. In the 11th minute of the first-half Loseby was challenged and saved back-to-back shots that were fired from
Williams offensive player Julia Cochran. Before the 20 minute mark, Williams College had another threatening opportunity when Libby Dolan fired a shot, but sophomore Ally McCall made a defensive save that kept that game at 0-0. At the 21:01, Williams offensive player Meredith Wright hit the ball in after a jumble at the front of the goal. But, the Owls didn’t back down and worked to create offensive opportunities, succeeding at the 35 minute mark. After being awarded a penalty corner just at the end of the first-half, Keene State first year Nina Bruno fired a shot into the net after receiving a back pass from junior Julia Babbitt. As the second-half of the game began, Keene State goalie worked to keep the Owls in the game by making consecutive saves in the first three minutes. But Williams broke through with a goal at the 53:53 mark and another goal at the 59:28 mark, sealing a 3-1 lead over Keene State. Overall, Keene goalie Rachel Loseby made 16 saves that kept the Owls in the game and Nina Bruno earned her 15th goal of the season.
