Maria Teresa Ambrogi Torres hits the ball.

ASHLAND, Va. – Maria Teresa Ambrogi-Torres (Richmond, Va. / Trinity Episcopal School) scored a pair of goals, pushing Randolph-Macon to a 2-1 victory against the visiting Frostburg State Bobcats on Sunday afternoon. R-MC had many of the offensive opportunities in the game, outshooting FSU 27-13.

The Basics

Score: Randolph-Macon 2, Frostburg State 1

Location: Ashland, Va./Day Field

Records: Randolph-Macon 3-0, Frostburg State 0-3

How It Happened

  • Frostburg State got a shot in moments into the game, but it was the only opportunity they saw for much of the first half. R-MC outshot FSU 13-6 in the period.
  • Ambrogi-Torres tallied her first goal in the 21st minute as she slotted the ball into the cage behind the keeper to the opposite side after a pass from sophomore Erin Barringer (Catonsville, Md. / Indian Creek Upper School). It marked her first goal of the season. Barringer was credited with the assist.
  • R-MC had a 7-3 penalty corner advantage in the first half. That has become a hallmark for the team early on this season – making sure that opponents don't get the chances to convert while taking as many opportunities to cage the ball as they are given.
  • In the 54th minute, Ambrogi-Torres got a shot with an open goal from about eight yards out that hit the back of the cage and netted R-MC its second goal of the match.
  • FSU got one of the goals back as Sam Coffey hit a shot that rebounded out for her to slot into the cage.

Inside the Numbers

  • Junior Katie Thompson (Burke, Va. / Lake Braddock) moved to 3-0 in goal, making seven saves on the game.
  • The defense stepped up yet again, ensuring that they limited FSU's penalty corners to just five in the match. The group led by sophomores Georgia Drescher (Virginia Beach, Va. / Frank W. Cox), Megan May (Hayes, Va. / Gloucester), Claire Magill (Moseley, Va. / Trinity Episcopal School) and freshman Sydney Duimstra (Montpelier, Va. / Deep Run) allowed just seven shots in the second half, with only four coming on goal.
  • May tallied a defensive save off a penalty corner in the second frame as well.

Quoting Coach Weiss

"It's been nearly 20 years since this team went 3-0 to start the season," said head coach Jess Weiss. "I'm happy for these players – they are putting in the work and seeing the results. We are going to get better tomorrow and look forward to the challenge of Johns Hopkins on Tuesday."
