Game Box Score
BABSON PARK -- Visiting Tufts University scored just 1:18 into the
contest and never looked back as the Jumbos ran away with a 4-1 victory
over host Babson College in non-conference women's soccer action at
Hartwell-Rogers Field on Tuesday afternoon. With the win, Tufts, ranked
third in New England by the NSCAA, improved to 5-1-0 on the year, while
the Beavers fell to 4-4-0.
The Jumbos wasted no time
taking the lead, as sophomore Cara Cadigan (Nahant, MA) took a
lead pass from senior Rebecca Abbott (New Orleans, LA) and scored
on a breakaway just 1:18 into regulation. Cadigan then had a hand in
Tufts' second goal at 37:46, as she received a feed from senior Annie
Benedict (Millburn, NJ) down the left sideline and crossed it to
sophomore Jesslyn Jamison (Berkeley, CA), who hammered it home
for a 2-0 advantage.
Tufts tacked on another goal midway through the second half when senior
Martha Furtek (East Falmouth, MA) chipped a shot over first-year
goalie Kristy Benoit (Shrewsbury, MA), off the crossbar, and in at
71:52. Babson would finally get on the board when sophomore Sam Bartman
(Upton, MA) scored her first career goal off her own corner kick at
83:31, but the Jumbos would nail down the 4-1 victory when sophomore
Ali Maxwell (Exeter, NH) hit a shot around Benoit and inside the
right post at 88:40.
Benoit and Sam Scarpato (Weston, MA) each played a half and made one
save in goal for Babson, while sophomore Kate Minnehan (Hopkinton,
NH) turned away one shot while going the distance in net for Tufts.
