Trinity Women's Soccer Loses At Bowdoin

Brunswick, Maine - The Bowdoin College Polar Bear women's soccer team defeated the visiting Trinity College Bantams, 3-0, in a New England Small College Athletic Conference (NESCAC) women's soccer action this afternoon on Pickard Field.  Trinity falls to 5-3-4 overall and 3-3-2 in the NESCAC, while Bowdoin secured a spot in the NESCAC Tournament at 3-4-1 in the league and improve to 6-5-2 overall.  Trinity has a three-game winless streak and has not scored a goal over its last 298 minutes of play.  The Bantams have qualified for the NESCAC Tournament and could earn a first-round home game on Oct. 31 with a win in its season finale at Amherst on Friday.

Bowdoin wasted little time jumping ahead on Saturday afternoon, as a give-and-go between Celeste Swain and Ellery Gould resulted in a shot from just outside the box from Gould that sailed over the head of Trinity senior GK Emily Weedon (Wellesley, Mass.) and into the left side of the net at 4:32.  The Polar Bears doubled their lead shortly before intermission as first-year back Becky Krakora took a pass from Stacie Sammott and snuck a shot past Weeden for her first career goal at 42:48.  Bowdoin clinched the win in the 67th minute when Christina Aceto
finished off a scramble in front of the net.  Bowdoin's Kat Flaherty saved nine shots in the victory while Weeden and junior Lily Pepper (Princeton Junction, N.J.) made three saves apiece for Trinity.
