Game Box Score

HARTFORD - Hitting their stride as the regular season winds down into its final two weeks, the Tufts women's soccer team won its sixth straight game and remained undefeated in its last seven with a 4-2 victory at Trinity College in Saturday afternoon NESCAC action.

Freshman midfielder Jesslyn Jamison (Berkeley, CA) scored the go-ahead goal in the 58th minute to lead the visiting Jumbos. Tufts, ranked No. 6 in New England, improves to 6-2-2 overall and 4-1-2 in the NESCAC. The Bantams fall to 2-8-1 overall and 0-6-1 in the NESCAC with their first loss in three games. With the loss, Trinity is eliminated from contention for a post-season bid.

Thirteen minutes in the game, Trinity sophomore midfielder Chelsey Reynolds (Medway, MA) slid the ball through a gap inside the box to junior forward Rachel Talentino (Wayland, MA), who drilled it into the net for the game's first goal. Less than two minutes later, Tufts responded with a goal by junior Rebecca Abbott (New Orleans, LA) on a corner kick by junior midfielder Jessie Wagner (Sudbury, MA). Reynolds set up another Trinity goal 30 minutes into the half, feeding classmate Erika Maciaszczyk (Milton, MA) to give the Bantams a 2-1 lead that they took into the break.

Ten minutes into the second half, an own goal was awarded to the Jumbos to knot the game at 2-2. Then Jamison aimed to send the ball into the defensive zone from 35 yards out, but her powerful kick was enough to send the ball over the head of Trinity junior goalie Tara Finucane (Branford, CT) and into the goal for a 3-2 Tufts advantage.

The Jumbos kept the pressure on and put the game away when freshman forward Ali Maxwell (Exeter, NH) capitalized inside the box by sending the ball in the top-left corner in the 72nd minute. The goals by Jamison and Maxwell were the first of their collegiate careers.

Tufts senior tri-captain Annie Ross (Newton, MA) was forced to make four stops in the win, while Finucane made seven saves for the Bantams. The last Jumbo loss was almost a month ago on September 16 at Middlebury, 2-1.
