Rindge, N.H. (September 9) -- The Assumption College women's soccer team dropped a 3-1 contest to Franklin Pierce University at Sodexo Field in Rindge on Sunday.

The Greyhounds outshot the Ravens, 6-1, in the opening 15 minutes of the frame and the hard work paid off in the 57th minute as Andrea Bates (Holden, Mass./Wachusett) deflected in a Caroline Arnold (Foxboro, Mass./Bishop Feehan) shot to cut the deficit in half.
