How It Happened 

The Owls found an offensive spark early, as senior Katie Silegy led the way with a goal in the 6th minute. The sequence started on the right side, as junior Patricia Norton collected the ball near the sideline and sent a cross into the middle of the box, where Silegy controlled the ball and drilled it into the right corner to give Keene State an early 1-0 edge. In the 13th minute, Silegy continued her scoring ways, as the midfielder converted off a pass sent from senior Taylor Farland, to make it 2-0. 

Keene State extended its lead to four after back-to-back breakaway goals from junior Tyrah Urie. The forward collected a through ball and sprinted towards the box in the 27th minute, beating the Rams' goalkeeper Kirsten Hansen in a one-on-one situation. Urie registered her second goal of the night just four minutes later, when the junior capatilized on a deflected ball off a defender, earning another breakaway chance to give Keene State a four-goal cushion. 

With five minutes remaining in the first half, Framingham State earned its best chance of the first stanza when Kaelen Larocque sent a pass to Ana Barretto, who dribbled to the top of the box and fired off a shot, but the ball went high.

Sophomore Quinn Dorogi pushed the Owls' lead to five early in the second half, when the midfielder blasted a ball into the back of the net off a cross from senior Morgan Kathan. Keene State continued to put on the offensive pressure as Kathan brought the ball up the right side and sent into in the box to Norton, who ripped off a shot within the six-yard box, sending it past an outstretched Hansen to make it 6-0, Keene State. 

The Owls capped off the evening with a goal from rookie Caitlin Klose in the 71st minute, as the forward dribbled the ball up the right side and sent a shot sailing towards the high left corner for Keene State's seventh and final goal. 

Framingham State gained some momentum as time wound down, when Cassidy Drosoulous fired a shot at the top of the box that was blocked, but the deflection was picked up by teammate Casey Good, who sent the ball back towards Owls' goalkeeper Shelby Offord. Good's shot just skimmed the crossbar to give the Owls the shut out as time expired.
