BEVERLY, Mass. – The second-seeded Endicott field hockey team scored three straight goals to begin the contest and never looked back in an eventual 5-1 Commonwealth Coast Conference (CCC) Tournament semifinal round victory over No. 3 Salve Regina on Wednesday night at North Field.

Endicott wasted little time getting on the scoreboard as Sophia Cogliano (Saugus, Mass.) buried a feed from Jaylin Grabau (Lynnfield, Mass.) just 2:48 into the contest. Emily Hirtle (Rowley, Mass.) and Grabau followed with tallies over the next 15:22 to put enough distance between the two teams the rest of the way.

Salve Regina's Tori Bickel (Harleysville, Pa.) did eventually answer with her 13th tally of the year at 30:45, but Cogliano took away any momentum from the Seahawks with her 25th goal of the season 1:09 later. Bushey then went on to cap the scoring at the 58:47 mark of the contest on a feed from Cogliano to end any chance of a comeback bid by Salve Regina.


  • Taylor Farrin (Danvers, Mass.) stopped a career-high 16 shots to push her record to 16-3 overall.
  • Endicott is now 23-4 in the all-time series versus Salve Regina.
  • Cameron Molinare (Simsbury, Conn.) notched a single-game, career-high three defensive saves.
  • The Gulls are now 10-1 at home this season.
  • Cogliano now holds the program single-season records in both points (54) and goals (25).


  • Jessie Severino (Branford, Conn.) made 12 saves in the loss (10-8).
  • Salve Regina outperformed Endicott in penalty corners, 14-9.


Endicott (17-3) will travel to top-seeded UNE (16-4) on Saturday for the CCC Championship game. Start time is set for 1:00 p.m. in Biddeford, Maine. The Gulls will be playing UNE for the conference title on the Big Blue Turf for the third time in the last four seasons. In both 2014 and 2015, the Gulls fell short in overtime.
