HENNIKER, N.H. – An unfavorable second half saw the Southern Vermont College women's soccer team fall 7-2 at New England College Saturday afternoon in New England Collegiate Conference (NECC) action.

SVC scored with one minute left in the first half to go into the break down 2-1, but the hosting Pilgrims then notched five goals in a 12-minute stretch of the second period to walk away with the win.

Southern Vermont (4-5-2, 2-2 NECC) is back at home for its next game—hosting Mitchell College on Wednesday for a 3:30 p.m. Conference showdown.

New England got on the board just 1:07 into the match before padding its lead in the fifth minute. The 2-0 lead lasted until there were 45 seconds left in the stanza when SVC senior captain Molly Madore (Higganum, Conn.) headed home a ball from junior Ashley Blom (Manorville, N.Y.) for her first of the year.

Once the Pilgrims got rolling, they ran away with it as the hosts turned the game into a 3-1 difference in the 60th minute; they went on to find the back of the net four more times by the time there was 18:30 left on the clock.

Southern Vermont sophomore Jayne Wierzbicki (Wilmington, Mass.) would notch her third goal of the season in the 76th minute off a pass from junior Danielle Biggers (Broadalbin, N.Y.), but that would be it for the Mountaineers as NEC closed out the decisive victory.
