Game Box Score
KEENE, NH - Kathleen Keniston (Minneapolis, MN) and Katrina Stauch (New Lebanon, NY) came off the bench to score two goals each to lead Keene State College to a 5-2 non-conference women's soccer victory over Tufts University in Keene on Wednesday.
Ranked sixth in New England, Tufts (6-3-2) saw its six seven-game unbeaten streak, which includes six straight wins come to an end. It was the second win in a row for Keene State (9-7).
Keniston gave Keene State a 1-0 lead at the 29:14 mark. The sophomore midfielder broke in from the left corner and beat Tufts goalie
Annie Ross (Newton, MA) with a shot the far side of the net.
Tufts had a couple of solid opportunities to tie the game later in the half.
Sara Raley's (Centennial, CO) drive hit off the crossbar and Martha Furtek's (East Falmouth, MA) breakaway shot was stopped on a diving save by Owl goalie
Liz Rosen (Swanzey, NH).
Renee Halsey (Francestown, NH) put KSC ahead 2-0 late in the half when she finished a touch pass from
Breanne Lucey (Keene, NH). Keniston's second goal of the game and fifth of the season extended the Owls' lead to 3-0 1:18 in the second half. Keniston took a lead pass from
Michelle Boland (Worcester, MA) and broke in alone for the goal.
Tufts cut the Owls' lead to 3-2 on a pair of goals by Lauren Fedore (East Lansing, MI). Her first goal came when she picked up a loose ball in front of the goal. The second goal, her seventh of the season, came on a shot from 24-yards out that went just under the cross bar.
Stauch scored a couple of insurance goals, her second and third of the season, to push Keene State's lead back up to 5-2.
Rosen had seven saves for the Owls. Ross finished with three saves for the Jumbos.
The win was KSC's first win over Tufts since 2002 when the Owls edged the Jumbos 1-0 in a NCAA Tournament game. Both teams will return to league play on Saturday. Tufts is home against Williams (12 pm) and KSC hosts UMass-Dartmouth (1 pm).
