How it Happened
A dominant Albany offense resulted in a 4-1 loss for the Rams on Sunday afternoon.

The Great Danes went up a quick 2-0 after a goal by Mariah Williams that was followed by a shot from Claire Stackel less than a minute later. Williams struck again to give Albany a 3-0 lead going into halftime.

A header by Meghan Cavanaugh pushed the Great Dane lead to 4-0 in the second half. Rhode Island got on the board at 25:42 when Emily Wakeford found the back of the net with a shot assisted by Jadyn Reilly. However it was not enough as Albany held onto the lead and the Rams took the eventual loss.
