Charlotte’s Care is tourney MVP

February 16, 2011

By Staff Reporter

The Kilkenny senior assisted on the winning goal in Charlotte’s
4-0 victory over Birmingham Southern, which gave the 49ers the tournament
title. Charlotte won their opening match against Rhode Island, 2-1, with
Carew scoring the first goal in the third minute.
Rhode Island’s Andy O’Boyle posted the first points of his collegiate career
in the Rams’ 5-1 drubbing of Harvard. The Belfast freshman scored Rhode
Island’s third goal of the contest in the 70th minute, then set up the final
goal 13 minutes later. The Rams are 2-3.
Boston University’s Alan McNamara got the party started with a goal in the
22nd minute of the Terriers’ 3-1 win over Massachusetts. The junior from
Woodview Raheen, Co. Limerick, tipped a teammate’s shot into the lower left
corner of the net.
Tony Anderson figured in both of Vermont’s goals as the Catamounts began the
season with a 2-0 victory over Adelphi. The Belfast sophomore found the net
on a header in the 62nd minute, then earned an assist in the 81st minute.
Freshman Neil Beasley earned his first collegiate point in a 1-0 win over
Southwest Missouri State after he stole the ball at midfield, leading to an
attack that culminated in the only goal of the match. Anderson then shone in
another 1-0 triumph, this time in the second overtime against Dartmouth. The
St. Malachy’s grad tapped in a rebound from the right post to boost Vermont
to a 4-2-0 start. Vermont, coached by Belfast native Roy Patton, has already
equaled its win output of the 2001 season.

Northern Kentucky’s Aisling Callaghan scored a goal and assisted on another
goal in a 5-1 pasting of Findlay. The junior from Dublin then put two balls
into the net and earned an assist in a 6-1 ambush of Gannon. Callaghan was
the heroine in the Norse’s 1-0 victory over top-ranked Christian Brothers.
She converted a penalty kick in the 83rd minute to improve the Norse’s
record to 6-0. They were ranked third in Division II going into the contest.
Keene State of New Hampshire has begun the season with four wins in its
first six matches. Coached by Denise Lyons, Keene began with a 1-0 victory
over Western New England, followed by a 3-1 triumph over Haverford. A 1-1
tie with Rowan then ensued, followed by wins over Clark, 5-0, and Westfield
State, 3-1. Keene then suffered its first loss of the season, 2-1, to
Wheaton. Lyons is a native of Newcastle West, Co. Limerick.

Iona’s Mark Smyth got the season off in fine fashion with a victory at the
Seawolves Invitational at Sunken Meadow State Park on Long Island. Smyth, a
junior from Sligo, ran five kilometers in 15 minutes, 58 seconds. Stony
Brook’s Brian Farrell, a freshman from Wicklow, placed 11th in 16:44.
Roisin McGettigan showed winning form in the Dartmouth Invitational. The
Providence College senior from Wicklow won the women’s race with a time of
19:05. Following her were teammates Mary Cullen, a sophomore from Sligo, who
was fourth in 19:23; Deirdre Byrne, a sophomore from Avoca, Co. Wicklow, who
was 11th in 19:54, and Emer O’Shea, a senior from Limerick, who finished
15th in 19:58.
Providence’s Martin Fagan placed 15th in the men’s division at Dartmouth.
The freshman from Mullingar, Co. Westmeath, ran the 8,000 meters in 25:55.
