MEDFORD -- The Tufts University Jumbos used a goal
in each half en route to a 2-0 decision over the Bates College
Bobcats in NESCAC women's soccer action on Homecoming Day Saturday
afternoon at Bello Field.
Freshman Jamie Love-Nichols (Cortez, CO) notched
her first career goal in the first half in the 34th minute when she went
one-on-one against the Bates keeper, dribbling by and slipping the ball
into the net. The Jumbos used their strong defense to keep the Bobcats
away from net, allowing just two shots by Bates, one of which was saved
by junior starter Kate Minnehan (Hopkinton, NH).
The second half saw the Jumbos add an insurance tally on
sophomore Sarah Nolet's (Los Altos, CA) second goal of the
season, as she took a pass from freshman Alix Michael (Mercer Island,
WA) and deposited the ball into the net in the 60th minute of play.
Bates was not able to record a single shot in the second half.
The goalie combination of Minnehan and sophomore
Hannah Jacobs (Mill Valley, CA) shut the Bobcats out, as the Jumbos
have yet to let up a goal all season. Minnehan recorded the only save of
the day for the Jumbos. Brittney French went all 90 minutes for the
Bobcats in net, allowing both goals while making one save.
With the victory, the Jumbos are now a perfect 4-0-0 on
the season and 3-0-0 in NESCAC play. Bates falls to 1-4-0 overall and
0-3-0 in the NESCAC. Tufts returns to action Tuesday afternoon at home
in a non-conference tilt against Babson. Kick-off is scheduled for 4 pm
at Kraft Field. Bates plays at Bowdoin on Wednesday.
