Bates field hockey stuns #9 Babson, 1-0

LEWISTON, Maine - Babson University came to Lewiston on Wednesday as the #9 team in the nation and undefeated at 13-0.

They wouldn't leave town undefeated as Shannon Beaton and the Bates field hockey team (6-4) stunned the Beavers by a score of 1-0.

"Hard work pays off," third-year head coach Dani Ryder said. "This has been three years in the making and this team has bought into everything we've thrown at them. It's a really incredible thing for a coach to see. They have so much faith and trust in themselves and the program."

Beaton's goal in the eighth minute of action put the Bobcats on top for good. She scored unassisted as a Beaver lost control of the ball a few yards away from the goal and Beaton took advantage, blasting her team-leading seventh goal of the year past Babson keeper Kayla Costa.

The Bobcats only tallied three shots on goal in the game but their defense shined as keeper Cristina Vega earned her second shutout of the season.

The win is Bates' sixth of the season, the most they've recorded in one year since 2008. It's also their first win over a ranked opponent since at least 2002.

Other standouts in the upset victory on a windy night in Lewiston included sophomore midfielder Caroline O'Reilly, who was everywhere on defense, disrupting the Beavers' attempts to get shots on goal.

"That's Caroline O'Reilly for you," Ryder said. "She is a spitfire, so reliable, always 100 percent. She is a phenomenal player and she really reads plays well."

Defender Delaney Nalen cleared the ball numerous times out of the scoring zone, keeping the Bobcats out of trouble on the defensive end.

Babson tallied seven penalty corners compared to only one for Bates but the Bobcats denied the Beavers every time.

The Bobcats are back in action this Saturday as they return to NESCAC play with a noon game against Tufts. A win on Saturday would match the most overall & conference wins in one season for Bates since 2005.

Field hockey falls 5-0 to No. 16 Jumbos

LEWISTON, Maine -- Five different players scored as No. 16 nationally ranked Tufts University rolled to a 5-0 NESCAC victory over the Bates field hockey team on Saturday at Campus Avenue Field.

The Jumbos (9-4, 6-2 NESCAC) moved into third place in the NESCAC with the victory, while Bates (6-5, 2-5 NESCAC) is in a three-way tie for eighth place with Colby and Wesleyan.

Hannah Park, Dakota Sikes-Keilp and Hanaa Malik each contributed a goal and an assist to the Jumbos' cause, as Tufts outshot Bates 22-4 and maintained an 11-2 advantage in penalty corners.

The first half was played in the middle of the field for the most part, with Maggie Chapman's 11th-minute goal standing as the game's only score for the first 31 minutes. On Tufts' first penalty corner of the game, Celia Lewis's pass from the top of the circle found Park near the face of the goal, and her short pass to Chapman was knocked in at the left goalpost.

Sikes-Keilp scored her third goal of the season in the 32nd minute, knocking in a rebound from 8 yards away off of a Tufts shot blocked by a Bates defender, to give Tufts a 2-0 lead at the half.

Rachel Terveer scored her third goal of the season just 42 seconds into the second half, poking in an easy finish after a cross from Malik found its way across the face of Bates' goal.

Malik added her third goal of the year in the 54th minute to make it 4-0, redirecting a shot by Sikes Keilp on a penalty corner. Park tacked on her sixth goal of the year, taking advantage of a loose ball in front of the Bates net in the 60th minute.

Emily Polinski had two saves for Tufts and Libby DesRuisseaux played the final 16 minutes in goal. For Bates, starting goalie Cristina Vega made four saves, then was relieved by Katie Knox, who made five more saves in the final 32 minutes.

Bates hosts Amherst on Sunday at 1pm.

Field hockey falls on penalty strokes at Southern Maine, 4-3

GORHAM, Maine -- The University of Southern Maine prevailed during the sudden-victory round of penalty strokes, winning by a 4-3 final score over the Bates field hockey team in a non-conference game Thursday afternoon.

Bates (6-7) fell behind 2-0 after the first half of regulation, but the Bobcats scored three straight in the second half to take a 3-2 lead.

USM (7-11) evened the game again at 3-3, however, on a penalty corner with no time left on the game clock. Tayla Smedberg scored on a Jessica Boghosian to force the first 15-minute overtime period.

Neither team could score through 30 minutes of overtime, prompting an initial round of five penalty strokes. Both teams scored on one of five strokes, with first-year Adah Lindquist (Wayne, Pa.) scoring on hers before she was matched by USM's Jennifer Poulin.

The second round of penalty strokes, which became a sudden-victory scenario, only required one round, as Lindquist missed Bates' first attempt before Poulin scored again to seal the Huskies' win.

Poulin gave USM a 2-0 lead in the 31st minute of regulation, following a third-minute goal by Dorina Sirois on a penalty corner.

The Bobcats stormed back to tie the game early in the second half. Senior Shannon Beaton (West Newbury, Mass.) registering her eighth goal of the season, unassisted, knocking in the rebound after Lindquist's aggressive drive and shot was deflected by Huskies goalie Amanda Kasbohm. It was the 17th goal of Beaton's career.

It took Bates only 29 seconds to tie up the game, with Lindquist tallying her second goal of the season with 30:45 left in regulation.

Bates took the lead for the first time with 4:22 left in regulation, with first-year Mackenzie Winslow (Winslow, Maine) scoring her first collegiate goal with a deflection of a loose ball in the circle.

Bates accepted the loss in spite of a 30-9 advantage in shots attempted and a 14-4 edge in penalty corners. Kasbohm made 19 saves for the Huskies to key their victory. Nine of her saves came on shots by Bates first-year forward Jessie Moriarty (Springfield, Mass.), who attempted a game-high 12 shots overall.

For Bates, senior goalie Katie Knox (Bronxville, N.Y.) made four saves over 94:33 of action in relief of the starting goalie, senior Cristina Vega (Needham, Mass.).

Bates returns home to host Middlebury in a NESCAC contest on Saturday at noon.

No. 3 Panthers move past field hockey 5-0

LEWISTON, Maine -- Pam Schulman and Annie Leonard scored two goals apiece to lead No. 3 nationally ranked Middlebury to a 5-0 NESCAC victory over the Bates field hockey team on Saturday, overcoming a strong effort by the host Bobcats' defense.

The Panthers (13-1, 8-1 NESCAC) won their ninth straight game, the last five of which have been shutouts. Middlebury outshot Bates by a 13-1 margin, requiring no saves from goalie Emily Miller in her fifth shutout of the season.

Annie Leonard struck first for Middlebury in the 12th minute on an assist from Grace Jennings. Leonard leads Middlebury with 14 goals, and Jennings has a team-high 10 assists.

Middlebury's third of eight penalty corners in the game resulted in a 2-0 lead in the 14th minute, as Lauren Berestecky fed Schulman for her first tally and her 12th of the season. With about eight minutes remaining in the period, Schulman scored on a penalty stroke to make it 3-0 at the half.

Both teams were scoreless over a stretch of more than 34 minutes, but Leonard struck again in the 62nd minute, scoring on a reverse chip into the left corner off of Bates goalie Cristina Vega. A minute and a half later, the Panthers made it 5-0 as Audrey Quirk assisted Susanna Baker.

Vega made one save for Bates in the second half; Katie Knox started in goal for Bates and made three saves in the first half.

Bates plays at Colby on Wednesday at 7pm and Middlebury hosts Williams on Wednesday at 6pm to wrap up the regular season.

Field hockey wins 1-0 at Colby, earns first playoff bid since 2010

WATERVILLE, Maine -- First-year forward Adah Lindquist scored the game's only goal with 3:57 left in the second half, and Cristina Vega had seven saves in the Bates field hockey team's 1-0 victory at Colby Wednesday night. The eighth and final berth in the NESCAC playoffs was at stake in both teams' regular-season finale.

Bates (7-8, 3-7 NESCAC) will play at No. 1 nationally ranked Bowdoin in the quarterfinal round of the NESCAC Field Hockey Championship this Saturday at 1pm.

With the victory, the Bobcats reached the seven-win mark for the first time since 2005, when the Bobcats finished 7-8. Bates also won three NESCAC games for the first time since 2005.

Colby (7-8, 2-8 NESCAC) settled for ninth place in the final New England Small College Athletic Conference standings, one place out of postseason play.

Bates came into the contest only needing a victory over the Mules to advance to the playoffs. Colby needed some help from Connecticut College and had to beat Bates to make the playoffs. With an earlier 6 p.m. game, Connecticut College eliminated Wesleyan with a 3-2 victory. The Mules knew by halftime that the second half was going to be like a playoff game, with the winner advancing.

The Mules did have the better of the play for the first 10 to 15 minutes of the second half, but the Bobcats settled down and dominated field position in the last 20 minutes.

The pressure Bates put on paid off when an errant Colby pass went to Lindquist (Wayne, Pa.), who blasted a hard shot to the right corner of the cage. Lindquist put all three of her shots on goal on the night.

The rivals equaled one another in shots attempted, with 11 for both, while Bates had a 5-3 edge in penalty corners. Both Vega (Needham, Mass.), one of Bates' three senior captains, and her Colby goalkeeping counterpart, Sarah Evans, finished with seven saves. It was the third shutout of the season for Vega, and the one that required the most saves to achieve.

Field hockey hangs with undefeated Bowdoin but falls short in NESCAC quarterfinals

BRUNSWICK, Maine -- The Bates field hockey team knew they faced a challenge in the NESCAC quarterfinals against top-ranked and undefeated Bowdoin. The Bobcats gave it their all but fell by a score of 4-1 on Saturday.

Bowdoin got on the board first in the game as Rachel Kennedy scored in just the second minute of action.

But the Bates' defense settled down and their offense got to work. In the 13th minute, first-year Jessie Moriarty scored her second goal of the season to even the contest at one.

Unfortunately that goal woke up the Polar Bears from their temporary hibernation as Bowdoin scored two quick goals in the 16th minute to go up 3-1. Kimmy Ganong gave them the lead and just 24 seconds later Kennedy provided the insurance.

After the early flurry of goals, neither team did much offensively for the remainder of the game Bowdoin added a final goal in the second half in the 66th minute. Bates tallied a total of five shots and three shots on goal while the Polar Bears finished with 14 shots and 11 shots on goal.

Keeper Cristina Vega worked hard for Bates, finishing with six saves on the day. In addition to Moriarty's goal, Lauren Foster tallied the other two shots on goal for the Bobcats.

The loss concludes the 2015 campaign for Bates. It was a great one as their seven wins marks their most victories in one season since 2005
