Game Statistics

MIDDLEBURY, Vt. -- Middlebury (5-4-2) won its third game in its last four contests as the Panthers earned a 3-1 NESCAC victory over Tufts on Dragone Field Saturday afternoon. The Jumbos, who had allowed just three goals in seven games prior to today, including six shutouts, fall to 6-2 on the season.

Middlebury took a 1-0 lead 22:31 in the game, as Lindsay Rotherham scored her first goal of the season with a shot over the head of Tufts keeper Kate Minnehan (Hopkinton, NH).

With Middlebury leading 1-0 in the second half, Caitlin Parker had a great chance to score with a one-on-one with Tufts keeper Hannah Jacobs (Mill Valley, CA), who was on in relief of an injured Minnehan. Following the save by Jacobs, play was stopped as she was injured on the play, forcing Tufts to put midfielder Maya Shoham (West Hartford, CT) in the goal with 34:52 remaining.

The Panthers took a 2-0 advantage at 59:58 as Parker took a centering feed from Ashley Pfaff and finished with a shot to the lower left corner. Middlebury gained some breathing room at the 66:31 mark as Anjuli Demers found Margaret Owen ahead of the pack. Owen went one-on-one with the keeper and slid a shot into the net that deflected off the hand of Shoham.

Tufts broke up the shutout in the 83rd minute as Jamie Love-Nichol�s (Cortez, CO) shot from 25 yards out sailed over the head of Lauryn Torch and into the net. Torch ended the day with three saves, while the Tufts keepers combined to make eight.
