Panther women’s soccer nets league win

WATERVILLE, Maine — The Middlebury College women’s soccer team broke through for its first NESCAC win on Saturday, 1-0 at Colby. The Panthers improved to 4-3, 1-3 NESCAC, heading into a non-league game on Wednesday at Skidmore and a Saturday league match at Trinity. Colby fell to 2-4-1, 0-3-1 NESCAC.
Though Middlebury had a 21-7 shot advantage in the game, only midfielder Hannah Robinson scored at 29:48. It was her first of the season and the sixth of her career.
In the second half, Middlebury’s Claire Nishioka and Jamie Soroka had golden chances, with Colby goalkeeper Emily Brook diving to stop Soroka.
Colby’s best chance came with just over 19 minutes left to play, when Emma Marjollet had her direct kick stopped on a diving play by Middlebury goalie Emily Eslinger.
Eslinger, in her first career start for the Panthers, recorded two saves, while Brook tallied 11 stops for the Mules.
