Game Box Score

Cara Cadigan's game-winning goal was the 14th of her Tufts career
 

SALEM -- Senior co-captains Cara Cardigan (Nahant, MA) and Whitney Hardy (Truckee, CA) scored goals to lead the Tufts University women' soccer team to a 2-0 non-conference victory at Salem State College on Wednesday afternoon.

The victory lifts Tufts to 7-4-1 overall and finishes their 2009 non-league slate with 3-2 record. Salem State falls to 8-6 overall with their second consecutive loss.

Cadigan scored midway through the first period, her third goal of the year, on an assist from classmate Fanna Gamal (Albany, CA) to give Tufts the early lead.

Hardy iced the game with 19:32 remaining by scoring her team-leading seventh goal of the season on another assist from Gamal.

The Jumbos out-shot Salem State 9-3 in the first half to keep the pressure on Lady Viking goalie Lindsey Burke (Harvard, MA), who stopped five shots in the first 45 minutes.

The second half was more of the same as Tufts used a 16-4 advantage in shots overall to cruise to the 2-0 victory. Burke, who made eight saves total, suffered the loss. Senior Kate Minnehan (Hopkinton, NH) made one save and picked up the shutout victory for the Jumbos, who remained unbeaten in their past four games (3-0-1).

Tufts travels to play #2 in the nation Williams College on Saturday. The Lady Vikings travel to Westfield State for their next contest on Saturday. The start time is set for 6:00 pm.
