CAMBRIDGE, Mass. – The MIT women's soccer team scored ten minutes into the second half to hand Bowdoin its second loss of the season in a 1-0 game on Friday night.

  • The two teams traded opportunities in the opening half. Emily Berzolla clipped the post twenty minutes into play for MIT, while Morgen Gallagher found the crossbar fifteen minutes later.
  • Brigit Bergin's shot in the final three minutes of the first half found its way past Lauren Ullmann, but her teammate was there to stop the shot and clear the ball.
  • Berzolla found the back of the net in the 54th minute, juking a Bowdoin defender and besting Rachel Stout for the game-winner.
  • Bowdoin continued to pressure for an equalizer, forcing Ullmann to make a save on a Talia Missan shot in the final two minutes. Julia Patterson's header in the last minute missed high as the Engineers held on to win.
  • The Polar Bears held a slight 12-10 edge in shots and 6-2 advantage in corner kicks.
