Women's Soccer Moves To 6-0

October 3, 2009

Middlebury outshot Colby 23-5 on the afternoon as the Panthers remained undefeated (6-0) with a 3-0 NESCAC win over Colby (2-4-1) on Dragone Field. Middlebury will have little time to rest as they return to action on Sunday when they host Wesleyan at 2:00 p.m.

Annie Rowell gave the Panthers a 1-0 lead at the 16:00 mark, heading in an impressive crossing pass from Kirsten Lundquist on the far post.

Rowell struck again for her team-leading sixth goal of the season just 5:51 later, giving Middlebury a 2-0 lead. After carrying the ball into the zone from midfield, she blasted a well-placed shot into the top corner of the net.

The Panthers had another chance in the 29th minute, but Rachel Madding's blast was denied by a beautiful save by Loni Pisani, as she just deflected the ball over the cross bar.

Leading 2-0 in the second half, the Panthers made it a 3-0 game as Margaret Owen netted her second tally of the season. Hannah Newman carried the ball down the left wing before sending a crossing pass to Owen, for the quick one-touch.

Colby had a chance to break-up the shutout in the final minutes, but a direct kick from Lexi Bohonnon sailed just over the cross bar.

Lauryn Torch finished the game with three saves to earn her third shutout of the season, while Pisano made 14 stops on the afternoon for the Mules.
