UNE advances to ECAC final with 2-0 win over WIT

Box Score

BOSTON -- Harley Chute broke a scoreless tie in the 70th minute, and the University of New England added a late insurance goal for a 2-0 victory over host Wentworth Institute of Technology in an Eastern College Athletic Conference (ECAC) Championship semifinal-round game played Saturday (Nov. 14) afternoon at Sweeney Field.

The fourth-seeded Nor'easters (13-7-0) advance to face No. 7 Emerson College, a 2-0 winner over third-seeded Elms College. The championship match is scheduled to kick-off at Sweeney Field on the WIT campus tomorrow starting at 2 p.m. Top-seeded Wentworth ends its most successful season to date with a record of 17-3-2. The Leopards had defeated UNE 4-1 during the regular season.

Chute scored off a corner kick to provide the Nor'easters with the game-winning margin. Taylor Littlefield served the ball from the right corner flag to Chute, who found the back of the net for her first collegiate goal.

Shortly after UNE took its 1-0 lead, Wentworth nearly tied the game when junior Mary Annon served a corner kick from the right flag, however freshman Madyson Reno's shot attempt missed to the left.

UNE would add an insurance goal with just under three minutes remaining when Edie Pallozzi passed from the right across the top of the box to Littlefield, whose shot from the left side caromed off the right post and across the goal line.

Windy conditions yielded few opportunities for both teams in the first half as the two teams combined for just seven shots, with three of those going on net. Wentworth had a 4-3 advantage in shots, however UNE had a 2-1 advantage on shots on goal. For the match, shots were tied at 10.

The second half saw Wentworth with a pair of chances early, however UNE goalkeeper Brielle Robinson kept the hosts off the board. Robinson finished with four saves, while Micaela Robinson had an identical total for the Leopards.

The Nor'easters will be making their second consecutive appearance in the ECAC New England Championship title game. Last year, UNE fell to Framingham State University in penalty kicks.
