Women's Soccer Tops Plymouth State

October 10, 2006

Rookie Margaret Owen scored her second goal of the season 36 seconds after the opening kick-off Tuesday evening, and that held up as the only score of the game as Middlebury edged Plymouth State 1-0.

Owen finished off a crossing pass from senior Caitrin Abshere on the only scoring play of the game. The visitors from Middlebury went on to outshoot the host Panthers, 12-2, but could find the back of the net just the one time.

Sophomore Adele Plunkett needed to make only one save for Middlebury to earn her fourth shutout of the season. Middlebury, ranked ninth in this week's Division III New England poll, improves to 6-2-0 overall, while Plymouth State falls to 4-6-1.
