LEWISTON, Me. -- The Bates College women's soccer team's defense set a school record by
recording their fifth straight
shutout as the Bobcats (7-1, 3-1 NESCAC) defeated the Tufts University Jumbos (4-3, 3-2 NESCAC) in New England Small College Athletic Conference (NESCAC) action on Saturday. The shutout loss was the second straight in league play for the Jumbos.
Bates junior midfielder Krissie Whiting scored the game's only goal with just under 20 minutes remaining in regulation. Whiting beat a Tufts defender and sent a ball past Jumbo goalkeeper Mara Schanfield (St. Paul, MN) in the top right corner of the net.
Bates junior goalkeeper Kim Martell made six saves and recorded her seventh shutout of the season. The Bobcats have only been scored upon in one game this season. The five-game shutout string surpasses four-game streaks in 1994 and 1987. The win stopped a five-match Tufts winning streak in the series that dated back to 1997.
