MIDDLEBURY, VT - The 12th ranked Williams College field hockey team outshot No. 10 Amherst College 16-2 en route to a 3-0 shutout win in the title game of the NESCAC Field Hockey Championship Tournament Sunday at Middlebury College, eliminating the Jeffs in conference postseason play for the second straight season. With the win, Williams improved to 12-4 overall, earning an automatic bid to the NCAA Division III National Championship Tournament.

Victoria Scott opened the scoring for Williams, tipping in a pass from Stefanie Noering past Amherst senior goaltender Beth Sensing (Hockessin, DE). The Ephs then stretched the lead to 2-0 with 2:05 left in the first half when Tara Boyd found the back of the net off a crossing pass from Scott. Williams capped the scoring and cemented the win with its third unanswered goal early in the second half as Boyd connected off a nice pass from Rebecca Kiselewich inside the circle.

Williams' Monelle Quevillon posted eight saves for the shutout, while Sensing finished with one for Amherst. The Jeffs stand at 13-4 after the loss and will await word of a possible at-large bid to the NCAA Tournament - a distinct possibility given Amherst's prominent national ranking and impressive run to the NESCAC title game. The Jeffs received an at-large entry in a similar situation last season, after bowing out of the NESCAC Tournament with a 1-0 semifinal loss to Williams.
