Game Box Score

Senior co-captain Cara Cadigan assisted on a goal and scored one for Tufts
 

SOMERVILLE -- The Tufts University Jumbos used lockdown defense to shutout the Colby College Mules 3-0 on Homecoming Day Saturday afternoon in NESCAC women's soccer play at Kraft Field.

The Jumbos did not take long to take control of the match, scoring less than seven minutes in when senior Whitney Hardy (Truckee, CA) headed the ball home after senior Cara Cadigan's (Nahant, MA) shot ricocheted off the crossbar. It was Hardy's third goal of the year.

Cadigan would double the lead for Tufts with 30:01 left in the first half after she stole the ball and went in on a breakaway; tallying her second goal of the season.

In the second half the Jumbo defense did not allow a single Colby shot on goal while the offense continued with tremendous pressure. Tufts added a late insurance goal with 13 minutes remaining on junior Bailey Morgan's (Universal City, TX) first goal of the season. The ball would graze the crossbar and sail over the head of Colby's junior keeper Loni Pisani (Kanata, Ontario). Sophomore Lauren O'Connor (Dudley, MA) and junior Audrey Alma (Portland, OR) earned the assists.

Tufts senior keeper Kate Minnehan (Hopkinton, NH) played the full 90 minutes for the Jumbos, and only had to make one save for the shutout. Pisani made four saves for the Mules while allowing the three goals.

The Jumbos are now above .500 in the NESCAC at 3-2 as well as in the overall standings at 5-4. Colby falls to 1-4-1 in conference and 3-5-1 overall. Tufts takes on Connecticut College in a 4 pm matchup at Kraft Field on Wednesday. The Mules welcome in-state rival Southern Maine on Wednesday.
