Women's Soccer Earns Third Straight Shutout
October 28, 2006
Middlebury wrapped up its regular season with a 3-0 win over Trinity in the first-ever soccer game played on Kohn Turf Field. The game was moved after heavy rain throughout the day made Dragone Field unplayable. The Panthers will host a NESCAC Tournament game on Sunday against Bowdoin. The game will be played at 1:30 on the campus of St. Michael's College in Colchester, Vt., with Middlebury's field deemed unplayable. Trinity ends its season at 2-10-2.
The Panthers opened the scoring just 2:32 into the game as Caitrin Abshere converted after a goal kick was mis-hit. Erin Oliver made it a 2-0 game at the 11-minute mark as she converted a feed from Abshere. Nora Tomlinson Weintraub scored her team-leading seventh goal of the season at 76:08 with an assist from Lindsay Rotherham.
Adele Plunkett made three saves in goal for her seventh shutout of the season, while Tara Finucane made four saves for the Bantams.
