HANOVER, N.H. – The University of New Hampshire women’s soccer team ended a tough three-game road trip Tuesday, when it was shutout 2-0 by DartmouthCollege at Chase Fields.
The Wildcats, who were shut out in every game of the road trip, drop to 4-4-1, while the Big Green improve their record to 2-6-0.
Dartmouth took control from the beginning, outshooting UNH 11-3 in the first half and 17-4 overall. The Big Green jumped on the board in the 21st minute when Myra Sack’s free kick from 30 yards out was headed into the back of the net by Peyton Tata.
The Big Green added to their 1-0 lead just over a minute later when Sarah Bromley put the second rebound allowed by UNH goalkeeper Ally Yost (Langhorne, Pa.), into the net.
Yost saw a lot of action in the game, and just like Nikki Golding (Milton, Mass.) in the Wildcats’ previous match against Harvard, she played well overall. Yost made a season-high eight saves in the match.
Dartmouth goalkeeper LaurelPeak made two saves to record her second shutout of the season.
For the second time in three games, the Wildcats were held to just two shots on goal. Junior Sara Hourihan (Lynnfield, Mass.) and sophomore Shaunna Kaplan (Framingham, Mass.) had the two shots for the ‘Cats.
The Wildcats return home for some much-needed home cooking Sept. 30 at when they play host to BinghamtonUniversity on Lewis Fields. The Wildcats (3-0-1) have yet to lose a game on their home turf.
