Box Score

MEDFORD -- Sophomore Cara Cadigan (Nahant, MA) continued her red-hot start to the 2007 season by scoring two goals to lead the Tufts University women's soccer team to a 2-0 victory over Carthage College on Sunday afternoon at Kraft Field.

Cadigan, who missed her freshman season at Tufts following ACL surgery on her knee, now has four goals in four games. The Jumbos improved to 3-1. The loss was the first of the season for Carthage, who dropped to 5-1. The Lady Reds, from Kenosha, Wisconsin, were on a two-game swing through New England. They defeated Coast Guard 3-0 on Thursday.

The win capped a great weekend for the Jumbos. Tufts was playing for the second straight day. On Saturday, they played 107 minutes against NESCAC rival and eighth-ranked Middlebury College before winning 2-1 on Cadigan's goal in the second overtime.

She got things started today by knocking in a rebound in the 15th minute of play. The Jumbos continued the pressure throughout the first half, finishing with a 10-3 advantage in shots.

Tufts continued to control play in the second half, when they would post an 11-2 margin in shots. Cadigan struck again after a corner when she took a cross from the right side at the top of the 18 and scored. She now has four of Tufts' six goals this fall.

The weekend also marked a return to the line-up for Tufts senior co-captain Martha Furtek (East Falmouth, MA), who had assists on both Cadigan goals against Carthage.

Carthage junior keeper Lindsey Bollman (Greendale, WI) finished the game with 10 saves, including six in the second half. Jumbo Kate Minnehan (Hopkinton, NH) needed only to make one save.
