HARTFORD, Conn.- Sophomore Jen Baldwin (Medway, Mass.) scored two goals to lead the visiting Tufts University Jumbos to a 5-1 win over the Trinity College Bantams in New England Small College Athletic Conference (NESCAC) women's soccer action on Saturday afternoon. The Jumbos, ranked No. 9 in New England, improve to 7-2 overall and 4-1 in the league with their fifth straight win. They moved into sole possession of first place in NESCAC. Trinity falls to 4-4-1 overall and 2-3-1 in the NESCAC.

The Jumbos earned a 2-0 halftime lead on goal by Baldwin and fellow newcomer Sarah Callaghan (Northborough, MA). It was the first goal of Callaghan's collegiate career. The host Bantams pulled within one on an unassisted  goal by freshman forward Caitlin Buzzell in the 46th minute.  Tufts then countered with three unanswered goals to put it away in the second half, including a momentum-shifting score by junior forward Jess Trombly (Nashua, N.H.) just 13 seconds after Buzzell's goal. The five-goal outburst is the most by Tufts against a NESCAC opponent since a 5-2 win at Bates in 1988.

Sophomore keeper Meg McCourt (Rochester, N.Y.) had three stops for Tufts in earning the win. Trinity sophomore goalkeepers Brenna Shields (Cutchogue, N.Y.) and Katherine Mahoney (Wellesley, Mass.) combined for 10 saves in a losing effort for the Bantams.

With the victory, Tufts improved to 6-0-1 against the Bantams since the 1995 season.
