BURLINGTON, Vt. - The University of New Hampshire women's soccer team remained undefeated in 2001 with a 1-0 victory against Sacred Heart University in Sunday afternoon's Vermont Soccer Classic action at Centennial Field.

UNH junior goalkeeper Kristen Ouellette (Weatogue, Conn.) recorded her fifth career shutout by stopping all eight Sacred Heart shots on target. Ouellette finished the tournament as the leading goalie by recording a 0.85 goals-against-average in 210 minutes of action in two games.

Sacred Heart goalie Leslie Konsig, who was named to the Vermont Soccer Classic All-Tournament Team, recorded 13 saves.

Senior back Michelle Thornton (Gloucester, Ont.) was the UNH representative on the All-Tournament Team. Other honored players were Megan Galbreath of Vermont and Tulsa's Beth Taruscio.
