Women's Soccer Remains Unbeaten With Win At Bowdoin

September 26, 2009

A goal in each half propelled the Middlebury women's soccer team to 2-0 decision at Bowdoin on Saturday afternoon. The Panthers remain unbeaten at 4-0-0 (3-0-0 NESCAC) this year while the Polar Bears fall to 2-3-0 (1-2-0 NESCAC) overall.

The game's first goal came in the 28th minute, as a scramble drew Bowdoin's Kat Flaherty out of goal. Middlebury's Annie Rowell tapped a slow-roller behind the defense and into the net for a 1-0 lead. The Panthers doubled their lead late in the second period, as Margaret Owen collected a long-ball pass from Anne Ford and lofted a shot to the top corner to give the visitors some insurance.

In an up-and-down contest, Lauryn Torch made 10 saves in goal for Middlebury while Flaherty finished with 14 for the Polar Bears.
