Beam scores in 2-1 win over Rhode Island
Up 1-0 on Rhode Island, the University of Richmond women’s soccer team got some insurance and the eventual game-decider from freshman midfielder and Indian River High School graduate Brooke Beam when she found the net for the second time this season during a 2-1 win on Sunday, Oct. 9.
It was the 35th minute when Beam spun a URI defender and booted a left-footed shot from 25 yards out, which eventually made its way over the outstretched arm of the Rams’ keeper and into the net’s corner pocket, to make it 2-0.
While the Rams would score in the 45th minute, the Spiders would hang on for the win, improving to 7-5-1 on the season and 2-2 in the Colonial Athletic Conference.
The goal was Beam’s second on the season. She also has had three assists so far this season.
The Spiders were set to take on Saint Joseph’s on Thursday, Oct. 13, (after Coastal Point press time), in another conference matchup.
