MEDFORD Junior Cedar Goldman (Newton, MA) scored just six minutes into the game, and her classmate Anna Shapell (Cape Elizabeth, ME) made four saves in goal for a shutout, as the visiting Bowdoin College Polar Bears earned a 1-0 victory at Tufts on Homecoming Day in Medford Saturday.

Played on a rain-soaked field after the Tufts versus Bowdoin men's game earlier in the day, the women found scoring opportunities tough to come by. However, in just the sixth minute Goldman launched a shot high over Tufts keeper Meg McCourt's (Rochester, NH) head and into the goal for a quick 1-0 Bowdoin lead. The goal would stand for the rest of the match as the Polar Bears (6-2, 3-2 NESCAC) stopped a recent two-game losing streak and a two-game slide against Tufts (5-2, 2-2 NESCAC). The game matched the fourth (Tufts) and eighth (Bowdoin) ranked teams in New England.

The shutout was the fifth of the season for Bowdoin and the first time Tufts has been blanked this year. The Jumbos earned an 11-7 advantage in shots and a 4-2 margin in corners, but weren't able to get one past Shappell. Senior Jess Trombly (Nashua, NH) led Tufts with four shots. McCourt finished with six saves in the Tufts goal. Goldman, who leads the team in assists, scored her second goal.
