Field Hockey Earns Another Shutout
September 23, 2006
Middlebury moved to 5-0 on the season and earned its third shutout as they picked up a 1-0 win over Wesleyan in NESCAC action on Kohn Field. The Panthers have now allowed just four goals in five games this season.
Middlebury's goal came late in the first half as they scored with 6:22 remaining. Following several minutes of pressure, Sophie Thompson made a nice crossing pass to Reid Berrien, who ripped a shot into the back of the cage. The Panthers ended the first half with a 10-4 shots advantage, with Wesleyan's Breen McDonald playing well to keep it a one-goal game.
Middlebury's attempts to increase its lead were denied again by McDonald, who made three big saves with 23 minutes remaining in the game. The Panthers had one last chance with 3:43 remaining, but Berrien's shot hit the post.
McDonald ended the game with 15 saves, while Middlebury's Meghan McGillen made seven.
