The Week in Beacons Sports (September 3-9)

It feels good, but it’s all about the teammates. They set me up beautifully.

Men’s Soccer 2-0 on the Week

Junior Krista Ledin of Bridgewater led the Beacons women’s soccer team (2-2) past Castleton State College on Sunday, besting the Spartans 2-1 in overtime.  Earlier in the week, the Beacons lost 2-1 to Skidmore College in their first game of the Castleton State College Tournament.

The Beacons (3-1) blanked Emmanuel College in their home opener Wednesday, 7-0, thanks in part to Marcus Pizzetti’s three goals.

“It feels good, but it’s all about the teammates. They set me up beautifully,” said Pizzetti, a junior from Malden.

The Beacons picked up two wins on the week, including a 1-0 victory over Suffolk University. Edmilson Barros, a freshman from Boston, had the lone goal for the Beacons.

Women’s Tennis
Despite a 2-0 day from freshman Kelsey Shea of West Bridgewater, the Beacons (1-2) couldn't hold off Colby-Sawyer College on Tuesday afternoon.

The Beacons (3-5) were 1-3 in the Endicott College Invitational. The women now prepare for their home opener on Wednesday.
