Who Stepped Up? Krista Ledin

Women’s Soccer

The freshman has had an unprecedented season for the Beacons. She broke the Beacons single season goal record when she scored her first goal of a hat trick in an ECAC New England tournament win over Endicott on Wednesday, Nov 9. She now has an astounding 23, as well as four assists. She was awarded the LEAC rookie of the year award this week as well, which is well deserved for a phenomenal year.

1-2 (0-2 ECAC east)

Even with a three goal lead after the first period, the Corsairs of UMass Dartmouth (1-1) would not go quietly, however, the Beacons defense managed to hold off the late comeback to give UMB (1-2) a 5-4 non-confence win Saturday afternoon at Hetland Ice Arena.

Giving the Beacons the early 3-0 lead going into the first intermission was sophomore Travis Daniel (North Brunswick, N.J.), junior Rob Florentino (West Roxbury, Mass.), and senior Kyle Tejchma (Fruitport, Mich.). Each goal was the first of the season for the three players, with Daniel finding the back first on the power-play just 38 seconds into the game.

After the first break, UMass Dartmouth came out firing, netting three goals over the next 20 minutes of play. UMB would respond with two goals to keep control of the scoreboard. Anthony Fitti (Havertown, Pa.) and Faiz Khan (Newhall, Calif.) kept the Beacons ahead of the Corsairs, with Kahn’s goal proving to be the game-winner.


28-4 (6-1 LEAC)

The ladies are currently in the midst of a run in the NCAA tournament. They cruised to a 3-0 win over NYU Polytechnic in Springfield on Friday. Kirsten Morrison was spectacular for the Beacons with success on 69% of her hit attempts. Cassy Hanneman amassed 37 assists in the contest. The ladies then had a quick turnaround before they faced the Bowdoin Polar Bears the next day. The ladies had a tough time in the first set, which they dropped 25-23. They won their next set but were down 2 sets to 1 before they won the final two sets to pull out a clutch 3-2 victory. That huge win was enough to move the ladies to the regional finals, with a trip to St. Louis to compete in the national finals on the line. The Beacons took on the home team, Springfield College. In a very hard fought match, the ladies fell to the Pride, 3-1. The season was a very successful one for the ladies, as usual. Although seniors Cassy Hanneman and Molly Rattigan will graduate, the Beacons have plenty of pieces in place for a bright future, including another tournament run next year.
