BRUNSWICK, Me. -- Bowdoin co-captain Dana Riker celebrated Senior Day with the game's only goal, lifting the Polar Bears to a key 1-0 conference win over Tufts University on Friday afternoon.

The Polar Bears improve to 8-6-0 (4-5-0 NESCAC) and earn the sixth seed in conference play and will travel to play at Middlebury in the opening round of the conference tournament on Sunday at noon. Tufts (7-6-1, 4-4-1 NESCAC) earns the fourth seed and will host Trinity on Sunday in the first round. Tufts and Trinity finished with identical conference win percentages of .500. The teams tied in head-to-head competition. Tufts has more conference wins, earning the No. 4 seed.

The game's only goal came courtesy of Riker in the sixth minute. The senior ripped a rocket from 25 yards out that tucked under the crossbar to give Bowdoin a 1-0 lead at 5:05.

Neither team could muster any great scoring chances for the remainder of the game, while Tufts best opportunity came from sophomore Lauren O'Connor (Dudley, MA) in the second period. O'Connor received a pass in the box and lofted a shot just high of the bar as Bowdoin maintained a one-goal edge.

The Jumbos recorded a large 20-4 margin in shots, with 10-2 advantages in both halves. Kat Flaherty made 13 saves in the victory for Bowdoin, while senior Kate Minnehan (Hopkinton, NH) recorded one save for the Jumbos. Tufts finished with a 6-2 edge in corner kicks.
