Behringer's header gives Bobcats the win

LEWISTON, Maine - The Bates women's soccer program got their first conference win of the season in spectacular fashion in a 1-0 victory over Trinity College (6-2, 3-2) on Saturday.

A perfect set piece from Allison Hill into the box allowed Hannah Behringer to head it home in the 58th minute to give Bates a lead they would not surrender.

The Bobcats (4-2-2, 1-1-2) received outstanding play from junior keeper Sarah McCarthy as she tallied eight saves in the shutout. All four of the Bobcats' wins this season have been shutout victories.

A scoreless first half saw neither side threaten too much offensively but the action picked up in the second half as multiple shots from both sides came very close to finding the back of the net. McCarthy made a particularly nice save on a break-away opportunity for Trinity as she slid to clear the ball away.

Behringer's third goal of the season was set up by a foul on Trinity. Hill took the free kick and delivered a perfect cross from the set piece into the box. Behringer timed her header perfectly to make it 1-0 in favor of Bates.

The women's soccer program is back in action Sunday afternoon as they host the University of Maine-Fort Kent. The match starts at 1:00.

Bobcats fall in non-conference tilt to Maine-Fort Kent

LEWISTON, Maine - Senior forward Katherine Ferland scored four goals as the University of Maine-Fort Kent Bengals (13-2) defeated the Bates women's soccer team (4-3-2, 1-1-2) by a final score of 6-2 Sunday afternoon.

The teams played to a 2-2 tie in the second half but four unanswered goals to start the game by the Bengals provided the final margin of victory. Ferland scored three of her four goals in the first half, including one only four minutes into the game. She would score her second goal less than four minutes later on a penalty kick to give the Bengals a quick 2-0 edge. Catherine Bruno added a goal in the 32nd minute before Ferland picked up the hat trick with her third goal of the match in the 34th minute of action.

After halftime the Bobcats switched keepers but that didn't impact Ferland who proceeded to score her fourth and final goal of the match in the 52nd minute.

Bates got on the board against the Bengals in the 61st minute. Maggie Coco took a corner kick and Olivia Amdur was able to deflect the kick into the net for her third goal of the season. Amdur's three goals on the year tie her with Leah Humes for the team lead.

The Bobcats struck again in the 78th minute as Karen Lockhart picked up her first goal of the season off a beautiful cross from Ana Urbina.

Maine-Fort Kent added their final goal in the final minute of the match as Kayla Richards was able to score off a deflection.

The Bobcats return to conference play on Wednesday as they host rival Bowdoin at 4:00 p.m.

Women's Soccer rallies to defeat Camels as Humes tallies two goals

NEW LONDON, Conn. - The Bates women's soccer team (5-4-2, 2-2-2) rallied from two goals down to stun Connecticut College (1-6-3, 0-4-3) by a final score of 4-3 on Saturday.

Leah Humes scored the final two goals of the game including the game-winner in the 88th minute.

Connecticut jumped on top early in the first half in the fourth minute as Alex Baltazar scored on a failed clear attempt by the Bobcats.

The Camels struck again in the 14th minute as Amanda Proulx drilled a free kick in the net from just over 18 yards away.

But the Bobcats would not be denied as Olivia Amdur scored in the 35th minute on a header. Libby Masalsky's cross set up Amdur perfectly for the goal.

In the 42nd minute, Cassidy McCarns scored a beautiful goal from just over 18 yards out to even the game at two.

The Camels took the lead again in the second half as Baltazar scored her second goal of the match to put Connecticut up 3-2 in the 66th minute.

Bates staged their dramatic rally with only four minutes to go in the game. An Amdur cross set up Humes for the game-tying goal in the 86th minute as Humes headed it home.

In the 88th minute, Humes struck again. Amdur delivered another assist as her cross set up Humes who volleyed it home to give Bates the 4-3 lead.

Humes tallied six shots and two of her three shots on goal found the back of the net. Her five goals on the year lead the team. Amdur is now second on the team with four goals. Amdur's five assists pace the Bobcats this season.

The Camels only tallied four shots on goal in the match but were able to convert three of them. Bates finished with eight shots on goal.

The Bobcats will look to win back-to-back conference games and match their conference win total from last year as they welcome Tufts to town on Saturday, October 17. The match starts at noon.

Tufts shuts out women's soccer, 1-0

LEWISTON, Maine -- Jess Capone scored in the 10th minute and the goal stood as the game-winner as Tufts University defeated the Bates College women's soccer team 1-0 on Saturday at Russell Street Field.

The Jumbos (5-5-2, 4-3-1) won for the first time in four games, evening their overall record and picking up three points in the conference standings.

Bates (5-5-2, 2-4-0 NESCAC) will host No. 2 nationally ranked Amherst Sunday at noon. Tufts will host UMass-Boston on Tuesday.

Bates sophomore goalkeeper Sarah McCarthy came up big with 11 saves, while Tufts' Emily Bowers did as well with eight. The Jumbos held a 7-3 edge in corner kicks and a 15-12 advantage in shots attempted, including 12-8 in shots on goal.

Capone netted her team-high third goal of the season, unassisted, with 34:24 remaining in the first half of the game. All three of the junior forward's goals this season have been game-winners.

Women's soccer battles Amherst to a scoreless draw

LEWISTON, Maine -- With freezing temperatues at Russell Street Field and high winds, the Bates women's soccer team played the 19th ranked Amherst Lord Jeffs to a scoreless draw Sunday afternoon.

The Bobcats (5-5-3, 2-3-3) consistently put pressure on Amherst (8-2-2, 4-2-2) keeper Holly Burwick. Burwick tallied 10 saves in the match, including a crucial one in the final minute of the second overtime. Captain Leah Humes got behind the Amherst defense but Burick came out of the box to made a sliding stop just when Humes fired a shot.

Bates keeper Sarah McCarthy finished with seven saves of her own. Offensively the Lord Jeffs out-shot Bates 21-17. Humes led the way for the Bobcats; finishing with four shots on goal. Olivia Amdur finished with three shots while Karen Lockhart tallied two.

Amherst's Maeve McNamara led all players with five shots while Megan Kim finished with four.

The wind impacted both teams' offenses. Amherst played against the wind in the first period while Bates battled the elements in the second period.

The draw snaps a four-match losing streak for the Bobcats against the Lord Jeffs.

The women's soccer program has some time off before they welcome Middlebury to town on Saturday. The match starts at 11:00 a.m.

Women's soccer blanks Middlebury, 2-0

LEWISTON, Maine -- Junior Allison Hill turned in a brilliant performance on offense and defense as the Bates women's soccer team shutout Middlebury by a score of 2-0 Saturday morning at Russell Street Field.

Hill was everywhere for the Bobcats (6-5-3, 3-3-3) in their win over the Panthers (5-4-5, 3-3-3). She made two defensive saves and delivered an assist on the first goal of the game on a corner kick.

"Allison only knows one work rate, and that's super high," head coach Kelsy Ross said. "What you saw there is a young lady who understands the game and puts herself in good positions."

The game started slowly for the Bobcats as Middlebury seemed in control on offense in the early-going. Middlebury shot attempts in the 10th and 13th minutes hit the post. After that, the Bobcats made adjustments in the midfield and started to take control of the match.

In the 32nd minute Hill delivered a perfect corner kick that senior Karen Lockhart headed off a Middlebury defender for her second goal of the season to put Bates up 1-0.

The Panthers made a push in the 42nd minute as Amanda Hotvedt beat keeper Sarah McCarthy and appeared to have a clear shot at the goal. But Hill was in perfect position and cleared the ball just as it was about to go in the net.

In the second half Middlebury managed seven shots but Bates' defense held in impressive fashion. Hill made another crucial defensive save in the 72nd minute to deny the Panthers a goal.

In the 83rd minute, first-year Olivia Amdur found senior Leah Humes for the second goal of the match. Humes' goal is her team-leading sixth of the season while Amdur's assist marks her team-high sixth of the year as well.

Over the last three matches the Bobcats have allowed a total of one goal. McCarthy tallied four saves to pick up the shutout.

The Bobcats finish their regular season schedule on Tuesday as they welcome rival Colby to town. The match gets started at 3:00 p.m. at Russell Street Field.

Women's soccer beats Colby; NESCAC tournament up next

LEWISTON, Maine -- Karen Lockhart could not have finished the 2015 regular season in more impressive fashion. The senior from East Greenwich, R.I., scored the game-winning goal Tuesday in the Bobcats' 2-1 victory over Colby College.

Fellow senior Leah Humes (Beaconsfield, Quebec) delivered a perfect cross and Lockhart emphatically kicked it into the back of the net for her third goal of the season and her second in as many games. She also scored the eventual game-winning goal in Saturday's 2-0 win over Middlebury.

"Staying healthy has been key for me this season," Lockhart said. "We have goals coming from everyone on the team and that's been the biggest factor in our success. I am psyched to play in the post-season and we are looking to go as far as we can."

Bates finishes the regular season with a 7-5-3 overall record and a 4-3-3 record in NESCAC play. It's their best overall winning percentage since 2006 and their best record in NESCAC play since 2005.

The Bobcats open up the NESCAC tournament on Saturday as the fifth seed, and will play at fourth-seeded Trinity at noon in the quarterfinal round. Bates defeated Trinity 1-0 at home on Oct. 3, one of the team's best victories of the season. This will be Bates' first appearance in the conference tournament since 2010.

Tuesday's win over Colby is the Bobcats' first win over the Mules since 2009.

The match did not start well for Bates as Katherine Gillespie found the back of the net in the 18th minute to put the Mules up 1-0.

But sophomore Julia Rosen (Springfield, Ill.) responded off a throw-in. She received the ball at the top of the box and delivered a hard, hooking shot that snuck past the leaping Colby keeper for the equalizer.

With the score tied at halftime, the Bobcats showed significant improvement in the second half. After being out-shot 9-5 in the first half, Bates and Colby each tallied seven shots in the second half.

Only one shot found the back of the net though and that was the rocket off the foot of Lockhart in the 72nd minute.

Sophomore keeper Sarah McCarthy (Rockville Centre, N.Y.) finished with six saves on the afternoon for the Bobcats.

Women's soccer falls in NESCAC quarterfinals to Trinity, 2-1

HARTFORD, Conn. -- A great season for the Bates College women's soccer team came to an end Saturday against Trinity as the Bobcats fell by a score of 2-1 in the NESCAC quarterfinals.

The Bobcats got on the board first as first-year Sarah Gutch scored the first goal of her career. In the seventh minute of action, she found the back of the net unassisted from way out to put the Bobcats up 1-0. The perfectly placed kick found a home in the net just inside the left post.

But the Bantams responded only a few minutes later. In the 14th minute, an impressive set of passes from Taylor Kirchgessner and Laura Nee set up Caroline McKenna who blasted a shot into the net to even the match at one.

Trinity took the lead in the 35th minute when Laura Nee dribbled the ball along the endline close to the net and found Kirchgessner in the middle of the field for the go-ahead goal.

Trinity out-shot Bates 8-4 in the first half. The second half featured plenty of shots but no points for either side. Trinity talled 15 shots in the second half to Bates' 12.

Each keeper kept busy in the contest as the Bobcats' Sarah McCarthy made 12 saves while Trinity's Monica DiFiori made six of her own. Olivia Amdur led all Bobcats with six shots and two shots on goal.

The Bobcats' season concludes with the loss. Their final record of 7-6-3 is the Bobcat's best winning percentage since 2006.
