Beam caps freshman campaign, Spiders miss out on A-10 Tournament
The Richmond Spiders women’s soccer team wrapped up their 2016 season at 9-9-1 overall and 4-6 in the Atlantic 10 Conference, after a 3-1 win over St. Bonaventure on Thursday, Oct. 27, and 1-0 loss in overtime to VCU on Sunday, Oct. 30.
Indian River High School graduate and Richmond freshman Brooke Beam notched an assist in Thursday’s win, which would wind up the last point of her freshman campaign. Beam finished the season with three goals and four assists and as the Spiders’ fourth leading scorer in total points behind junior forward and Caesar Rodney High School graduate Lexi Prilliman (12 G, 8A), senior forward Meaghan Carrigan (11 G, 3A), and freshman forward Alyssa Walker (5 G, 2 A).
During Sunday’s loss to VCU, the Spiders missed two key chances to score in regulation, one in the 39th minute when Prilliman missed wide right just before half and the second in the 71st minute when Beam hit the post. Sophomore midfielder Ashley Gross also managed a shot on goal in the 73rd minute that was saved by the VCU keeper.
At 4-6 in the A-10, the Spiders were edged for the eighth seed in the tournament by Rhode Island (6-7-5, 3-4-3). Tournament play is set to begin on Thursday, Nov. 3.
