The five-game winning streak Adam Cohen’s women’s soccer squad was riding is no more. Saturday night, Stonehill, coming in at 7-4, one game worse than the Owls, rallied for a second-half comeback behind back-to-back goals from junior Courtney Campo.
Owls freshman Kaitlyn D’Amico struck within the game’s opening minutes and the score stayed 1-0 until Campo’s offense powered the Skyhawks all the way home.
“We’re gonna get together now and go over different film footage. We’re gonna learn from our mistakes and keep getting better day in and day out,” senior captain Mikaela Magee said. “We continue to work hard on the practice field and we’re gonna use this game to help us move forward and get better.”
The Owls are now 8-4 and 7-2 in conference play following the 2-1 loss, snapping a winning streak dating back all the way to Sept. 18 when they defeated Saint Anselm, 1-0, behind freshman Kelsey Burr’s goal.
“It’s simple [to re-group]. We look forward to the next match now,” Cohen said. “We just need to move forward to Wednesday. We’ll feel bad about this tonight and tomorrow we’ll start getting ready.”
The team has six regular-season games remaining, starting with Wednesday’s non-conference matchup at home with 9-1 Mercy College. Next Saturday they will travel to Waltham, Mass. for an 11 a.m. tilt with a struggling 3-4-3 Bentley Falcons squad.
