Field Hockey Blanked at Williams in NESCAC Tournament Quarterfinals

November 3, 2002

FROM A WILLIAMS COLLEGE RELEASE

WILLIAMSTOWN, MA - The Amherst field hockey team drew first blood in the 2002 version of the traditional Amherst-Williams rivalry with a 1-0 overtime win last weekend, but the host Ephs came back on Sunday, downing visiting Amherst, 3-0, in the NESCAC Tournament Quarterfinals. With the loss, the Jeffs season comes to an end at 7-8 overall. Williams, meanwhile, will advance to the tournament semifinals and will meet Middlebury College at top-seeded Bowdoin College on Saturday.

Neither team could gain a foothold in the game's opening minutes - the back-and-forth action was very reminiscent of the Oct. 26 matchup at Amherst. But, 13 minutes into the first period, Williams capitalized - Tori Scott took a pass from Stef Noering and sent the ball past first-year Amherst goalkeeper Anne McMullin (St. Louis, MO). The tally was all Williams would need to close out the game. Despite unrelenting offensive pressure, the Jeffs weren't able to find a hole in the Williams defense. Meanwhile, Noering found the back of the net twice more to set the final score at 3-0.

The Jeffs - winners of four of their last five - had their winning-streak snapped at three games. Sunday's loss was also the final game for seniors Abby Ouimet (Hatfield, MA), Molly O'Connor (Baltimore, MD), Carlyn Lamia (Chevy Chase, MD), Jenna Obelsky (Stoughton, MA) and Katherine Ryan (Westborough, MA).
