Fourth-Seeded Jeffs Blanked by Top-Seeded Host Middlebury, 3-0, in NESCAC Semifinals

November 8, 2003

MIDDLEBURY, VT - The fourth-seeded Amherst College field hockey team was shut out by top-seeded Middlebury College, 3-0, in the NESCAC Postseason Tournament Semifinals, held at Middlebury College on Saturday. The host Panthers, undefeated and ranked No. 1 in the nation, used two first-half goals from senior Char Glessner en route to their 15th win of the season. Amherst junior goalkeeper K.C. Cosentino (Greenwich, CT) had 12 saves in the loss.

Glessner found the cage off an assist from sophomore Ashley Lyddane with 12:08 left in the first half, and struck again, unassisted, with 3:22 remaining. Senior Abigail Lamb added another Middlebury goal with 21:31 left in regulation off a feed from sophomore Emily Enos. Middlebury first-year goalkeeper Meg McGillen had four saves for the Panthers who advance to the championship game against third-seeded Williams College, which edged No. 2 seed Bowdoin College, 5-4 in the other NESCAC Semifinal match, Sunday at Noon.

Amherst, ranked 17th in the nation, is eliminated from the tournament with the loss and awaits word of an at-large bid to the NCAA Tournament with a record of 11-5 (6-3 NESCAC).
