BRUNSWICK, Maine - The Bowdoin women's soccer team scored three unanswered goals in the second half on its way to a decisive, 4-1 victory over New England Small College Athletic Conference (NESCAC) rival Tufts on Saturday afternoon. Bowdoin (7-1-1, 3-1-1 NESCAC) entered the game ranked third in New England while Tufts (7-2-0, 4-2-0) was ranked fifth in the region.
Bowdoin struck first as sophomore Caroline Budney (Manlius, N.Y.) converted a feed from classmate Shelly Chessie (Fredericton, N.B.) with less than seven minutes expired in the game for a 1-0 lead. Just 41 seconds before the end of the first half, the Jumbos managed to tie the affair when Carmen Mikacenic (Seattle, Wash.) netted an unassisted goal.
In the second frame, senior Molly Perencevich (Concord, N.H.), first-year Jill Falwell (Arlington, Mass.) and sophomore Amory Bradley (Weston, Mass.) all tested the Tufts net for the 4-1 final. Senior Sarah Farmer (Vienna, Va.) made four saves to pick up the win in net while Randee McArdle (E. Nassau, N.Y.) turned away seven shots for Tufts.
