No. 2 Bowdoin shuts out Colby
Roundup: Skidmore wins 18th consecutive Liberty League game
BRUNSWICK, Maine -- Katie Herter notched two goals and an assist to en route to a 3-0 Bowdoin win against Colby on Saturday afternoon. The win improves the Polar Bears to 8-0 (6-0 NESCAC) on the year, while the Mules drop to 1-7 (0-6 NESCAC) with the loss.
Herter put Bowdoin on the board at 28:31 in the first half after an Ella Curren corner attempt. Cathleen Smith tipped Curren's rocket, but Colby goalie Michelle Burt made a good save of the shot. Herter roofed the rebound into the top of the net to put the Polar Bears on top. The goal proved to be the only marker of the half, as Burt made saves on back-to-back attempts by Liz Clegg and Herter to keep the Mules within one.
Katie Riley gave the Polar Bears an insurance goal with 12:29 remaining on a tip off of a Herter shot. Shortly after Riley's tally, Herter struck again to put the game away. Clegg carried the ball up the right side of the field and directed a hard pass to a waiting Smith at the top of the circle. Smith swiftly one-touched the ball to Herter on the back post, who slammed home her second goal of the game.
