MEDFORD -- The Tufts women's soccer team stretched its unbeaten streak to four games with a big 3-0 victory over the Bowdoin Polar Bears in New England Small College Athletic Conference (NESCAC) women's soccer action on Saturday afternoon.
The match pitted #6 in New England Bowdoin versus the ninth-ranked Jumbos, and Tufts struck first. Junior Carmen Mikacenic (Seattle, WA), playing with a facemask after breaking her nose at Bates last Saturday, converted a pass from leading scorer Lynn Cooper (Wilton, CT) from close range. The teams went to halftime with Tufts holding that 1-0 margin.
Jeanne Kehrberger (Waldwick, NJ), playing as a grad student after missing all last year with a knee injury, gave the Jumbos a 2-0 cushion unassisted early in the second half. When senior Amanda Nagler (Beverly Hills, CA) added her fourth of the season at 65:08, the Jumbos locked up their biggest win of the season to date.
The shutout was sixth in nine games for the Jumbo defense. The game was relatively even statistically, with Tufts holding a 10-8 advantage in shots and Bowdoin earning a 4-2 edge in corner kicks. Keepers Sarah Farmer (Vienna, VA) of Bowdoin and Randee McArdle (East Nassau, NY) each were credited with three saves.
Tufts looks to extend its streak at home versus Trinity next Saturday (Oct. 16) at 11 a.m.
