NEW LONDON, Conn.--The Brown University women's water polo team earned a 17-14 victory against Connecticut College in a match played in Lott Natatorium Wednesday night.
The Bears improved their record to 5-12 with the win, while the Camels fell to a 6-4 in the setback.
"Our offense started off slow, but we started putting shots on net and came away with some solid shots," Connecticut College Head Men's and Women's Water Polo Coach Matt Anderson said. "Our power play really was clicking tonight and that makes us feel good. It was a fun, offensive game which players always enjoy. Not sure if the goalies liked the amount of shots given up, but the field players enjoyed taking the shots! Kelsey Millward (Baie D'Urfe, Quebec) had an outstanding day putting the ball in the back of the cage, and Brianna Harrity (Jeffersonville, Pa.) really had the breakout game we have been waiting for!! It was nice to see. This was a good learning game for our girls as we wrap up our spring break."
Millward had six goals, five earned ejections and one assist to lead the Camels in the match. The senior All-American has accounted for a team-best 33 goals and 18 earned ejections on the spring. Harrity erupted with four goals, five assists and three steals in the contest.
Sophomore Emma Stephens (Huntington Beach, Calif.) chipped in with two goals and an earned ejection. April Anderson (Mill Valley, Calif.) collected three steals to go with a goal. Senior co-captain Abbey Wrobleski (Honolulu, Hawaii) sandwiched a goal around a pair of assists for Connecticut College.
Junior net-minder Sarah Sovia (Pottstown, Pa.) made three saves in the cage. Sovia has tallied 82 saves in her first full season in goal.
