JUMBO DEFENSE STELLAR AGAIN IN 2-0 VICTORY OVER
COLLEGE WOMEN'S SOCCER FINAL SCORE
Tufts 2, Connecticut College 0
At Medford, MA
Saturday, September 20, 2008
SOMERVILLE -- Behind stellar defense, the Tufts
University Jumbos notched their second consecutive shutout to start
the season, defeating the Connecticut College Camels 2-0 in NESCAC
women's soccer action on Saturday afternoon at Kraft Field.
The match was scoreless through the first half, but the
Jumbos dominated the play on both sides of the ball, out-shooting the
Camels, 8-1. Tufts broke through in the 55th minute when junior Cara
Cadigan (Nahant, MA) took a pass from freshman Lauren O'Connor
(Dudley, MA) and proceeded to hook a right-footed shot from the edge
of the 18-yard box that glanced off the inside of the left post and into
the corner of the net. The goal was her second of the season, and 21st
of her career in just 20 career games.
Later on in the 84th minute, Jumbo first-year Alyssa
Von Puttkamer (Park City, UT) tallied her first career goal after
she buried the ball into the upper left corner of the net. The second
Jumbo goal was assisted by junior Fanna Gamal (Albany, CA).
Connecticut College could not get any offense going
throughout the day, as they only recorded one shot. Tufts used the
combination of junior Kate Minnehan (Hopkinton, NH) and sophomore
Hannah Jacobs (Mill Valley, CA) in goal en route to the shutout
with neither keeper making a save. Camels junior keeper Jenna Ross
(Longmeadow, MA) notched four saves in the first half for the
Camels. Junior Bailey Andrews (Pembroke, MA) made three saves,
but allowed both Jumbo goals in the second half.
Tufts has begun the season 2-0 overall and 2-0 in NESCAC
play and Connecticut College falls to 2-1-0 overall and 0-1-0 in the
NESCAC. The Jumbos return to action on Wednesday afternoon as they take
on Wheaton College in Norton, Mass. at 4:30 pm. The Camels next match is
also Wednesday at 7 pm against the Coast Guard Academy.
