WORCESTER, Mass. -- Junior Katie O'Neill scored the game's first goal at 1:30 in the first half and sophomore Amanda Roberts tallied two assists as the WPI Engineers defeated the Tufts Jumbos, 2-0 in non-conference action on Thursday.

Only 1:30 into the game, O'Neill received a feed from teammate Roberts and scored what would become the game-winner a minute-and-a-half into the game. The Engineers added an insurance goal at 51:03, when Erin Thompson knocked the ball into the goal on a scramble. Despite attempting more than twice as many shots as the Engineers, Tufts once again had hard luck finding the net. Senior goalkeeper Mara Schanfield (St. Paul, MN) tallied nine saves in the losing effort, which ended Tufts' two-game winning streak.

Tufts, now 8-5 on the season and 5-3 in the NESCAC, will travel to Williamstown, Mass., this Saturday to face the NESCAC-leading Williams Ephs (12-0, 8-0 NESCAC).
