Bears Fall to Monmouth, 3-0

WEST LONG BRANCH, NJ - The Brown field hockey team (0-3) dropped a 3-0 decision to Monmouth (3-1) on Saturday afternoon at So Sweet A Cat Field. The Hawks scored what would prove to be the game-winning goal just 13 minutes into the game and then added two goals in the second half to account for the 3-0 final.

Sophomore Alexis Aurigemma (Wilmington, DE) earned the start in net and made eight saves to help lead Brown, which was outshot, 20-3. Monmouth also controlled the penalty corners, 15-1.

In addition to Aurigemma's eight saves, junior Bridget McNamara (Bethesda, MD) made a big play on defense, recording a defensive save less than 10 minutes after the Hawks had taken a 2-0 lead.

 

 

After three straight road games to open the year, Brown returns to action this weekend when it hosts Columbia in its 2010 Ivy opener on Saturday at 1:00 and then Bryant on Sunday at 12:00 noon.
