Jeffs Blank Mt. Holyoke, 3-0

October 24, 2002

AMHERST, MA - The Amherst College women's soccer team extended its winning streak to four games with a 3-0 shutout victory over visiting non-league foe Mount Holyoke College Thursday afternoon at Hitchcock Field. Sophomore midfielder Ashley Harmeling (N. Reading, MA) paced the Jeffs with a pair of goals while classmate striker Lee-Jay Henry (Springfield, MA) also chipped in with a goal and an assist.

The Jeffs dominated the majority of first half play. Harmeling and sophomore midfielder Adrienne Showler (Ottawa, Ontario) both had early scoring chances turned aside by great diving stops by Lyon senior goalkeeper Kristen Van de Geer (Monson, MA). Amherst pierced the scoring column 31:00 into the contest when Henry stripped a defender and chipped the ball around Van de Geer to Harmeling for the easy tap-in goal, giving the hosts a 1-0 advantage at the break.

Amherst tacked on a pair of late tallies to set the final score at 3-0. Harmeling notched her seventh goal of the season in the 81st minute when she headed the ball into the back of the net off a gorgeous corner kick by junior midfielder Jenny Rossman (Newton Highlands, MA). Shortly thereafter, Henry took a feed from first-year midfielder Sarah Coleman (New Haven, CT) and netted her fourth goal of the year.

Van de Geer was stellar in net and finished with nine saves while Jeff senior goaltender Brooke Diamond (Longmeadow, MA) was equally impressive, recording four saves to earn her sixth shutout this season. With the victory, Amherst improves to 8-4 overall while the Lyons drop to 7-7-1.

Now in a three-way tie with Tufts University and Williams College for first place in the NESCAC, the Jeffs return to action Saturday at 11 a.m. against the visiting Ephs before rounding out the regular season at conference foe Trinity College on November 2, with the NESCAC Postseason Championship Tournament slated to begin November 3.
