Women’s soccer blanked by Polar Bears

BRUNSWICK, Maine — The Middlebury College women’s soccer team on Saturday dropped a 2-0 NESCAC contest at Bowdoin. The Panthers (3-2-1, 1-2-1 NESCAC) were set to visit Keene State on Wednesday and will host league foe Colby on Saturday at 11 a.m.
The Panthers carried play early, as Polar Bear keeper Rachel Stout jumped to deny Sara DiCenso just before Virginia Charman fired a shot just high. The Panthers also hit a post after an Emma Shumway corner kick.  
Bowdoin (2-2-1, 1-2-1 NESCAC) then struck for a pair of goals 3:16 apart late in the half. Emma Beane opened the scoring with an unassisted goal at 5:08, and Brigit Bergin doubled the lead by taking advantage of a turnover inside the Middlebury penalty area.
The Panthers took three shots in the opening half-dozen minutes of the second-half, when Stout (nine saves) denied Charman and Amanda Dafonte, and Dafonte had another shot go over the net. But Bowdoin allowed only two shots the rest of the way. Middlebury goalie Ursula Alwang made four saves, while Stout posted nine. Middlebury outshot the Polar Bears, 17-12, including a 12-6 in the first half.
