Framingham, MA - The Framingham State University football team had four interceptions including one returned for a touchdown by senior Matt Mangano (Winchester, MA) as the Rams defeated Endicott College 20-17 in non-conference action this afternoon at Bowditch Field.

Framingham State forced five turnovers in the game, four interceptions and one fumble, which they converted into a pair of scores.  Mangano had a pair of interceptions and three tackles, while junior Tyllor McDonald (Springfield, MA) and sophomore Jaquan Harris (Randolph, MA) each had picks in the waning minutes of the game to help secure the victory.

The Rams (1-0) turned the ball over on downs near midfield on the first possession of the game and Endicott (0-1) would need just one play, a 47-yard touchdown toss from senior Drew Frenette (New Bedford, MA) to junior Alec Matys (Woburn, MA), to take the game’s first lead. After Kyle Regan (Nashua, NH) converted the extra point, the Gulls led 7-0 with 11:37 on the clock.

Junior Tyler Calitri (West Hartford, Conn.) intercepted Matt Silva (Dracut, MA) on the Rams ensuing possession.  The Gulls drove deep into Ram territory on the strength of Frenette’s arm, but senior Kevin Donahue (Norfolk, MA) was able to deflect a Frenette pass.  Mangano was right there to make the pick and raced 71 yards to the end zone for the touchdown. After a penalty on the extra point led to ...[read more]

Framingham, MA - The Framingham State University field hockey team opened the 2014 season with an impressive 3-1 victory over Regis College this afternoon in non-conference action at Maple Street Field.

Framingham State is now 1-0 on the young season, while Regis, who opened the year this past weekend, evens their record at 1-1.

Framingham State grabbed control in the first half with a pair of goals. Senior Emma Littlefield (Rockport, MA) stuck first when she converted off a feed from classmate Hannah Wilkins (Merrimac, MA) in front of the net.

Wilkins had a hand in the Rams second goal as well when she sent a cross to junior Cady Kelly (Canton, MA) in the circle. Kelly connected for her first of the season with just under 19 minutes remaining in the half giving the Rams a 2-0 lead that they would take into the half.

The game would remain 2-0 in favor of the Rams until the final ten minutes. The Pride cut the Rams lead in half with 7:59 showing on the clock. Junior Lauren DeMars (Maynard, MA) sent a long pass across the circle to freshman Hailee Forest (Amherst, NH). Forest snapped a shot off into the back of the cage pulling the Pride within one.

That was as close as they would get as the Rams tacked on an insurance goal with just over a minute remaining in the game. Kelly found the back of the net for the second time in the contest off a feed from freshman Amie Souza (Taunton, MA).

The Rams outshot the Pride 17-9 in the game and held a 10-1 edge in penalty corners. Junior Rosemary Talbot (Whitinsville, MA) picked up the victory in net making five saves, while junior Raegan Heck (Phillipston, MA) made nine stops for the Pride.

The Rams are back in action on Saturday when they host UMaine Farmington in a non-conference match-up at 4 p.m.
