Leicester, Mass.-Becker College defeated Regis College 3-1 in New England Collegiate Conference women's soccer action from a rain soaked Alumni Field.

Becker made the score 2-0 with 6:51 remaining in the first half on Jodi Theriault's second goal of the game. The Hawks increased their lead to 3-0 when Caroline Plunkett (Rockaway, N.Y.) tallied her team leading ninth goal of the season with just five seconds remaining in the first half.

The Pride finally got on the board with 16:07 remaining in regulation when Becker misplayed the ball in front of their net, scoring an own goal, making the score 3-1.

Regis goalkeeper Michaela Yebba (Wakefield, Mass.) and Kara Donovan (Woburn, Mass.) turned away four Becker shots. The lost drops the Pride to 6-4 overall and 2-2 in the NECC. The Pride will try to get back on track this Saturday when they travel to Elms College for a 4 o'clock tilt with the Blazers.
