BRISTOL - Kendall Davis returned to the St. Paul lineup and scored three goals as the Falcons beat visiting Seymour 4-2 on Friday evening.
“It was good to have Kendall back after missing with a leg injury,” St. Paul coach James Husbands said. “Her three goals were key for us tonight. Her sister , Addson, was also important in our win, playing strong at the center back position.”
St. Paul jumped out to a 3-0 lead in the first half as Davis scored in the seventh minute, assisted by Julia Dess, and 10th minute, assisted by Briana Senese, before Senese added an unassisted tally in the 30th minute.
Seymour’s Melissa Gagardi put her team on the board 1:09 before halftime.
In the second half, Davis made it 4-1 with an assist from Dess in the 48th minute.
Seymour’s Alexs Vades scored off an assist from Melissa Gagliardi with 10 minutes to play for the final tally.
Goalkeeper Maddy Hooks made five saves for St. Paul (4-1-2), with Malyssa Kubik making 10 stops for Seymour (2-6).
“Freshman backup goalie Maddy Hooks played very well for us, subbing for Nina Zwolinski, who got sick during school and was forced to miss the game,” Husbands said. “The two goals Seymour scored were high, arching shots that just got over her reach. Beautiful shots very few goalies would have been able to stop.”
St. Paul will travel to Oxford on Tuesday for a 7 p.m. game before returning home on Thursday to host Holy Cross at 3:45 p.m.
