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.
