GENEVA, N.Y. -- No. 3 William Smith battled top-ranked Messiah College to a scoreless tie through two overtime periods. The Herons are now 3-0-1, and the Falcons record now stands at 2-0-1.
William Smith out-shot Messiah 12-11. Each team earned three corners. Senior goalie Amanda Davis played all 110 minutes and stopped two shots. Autumn Reilly finished with seven saves in goal for the Falcons.
No. 4 Emory 2, Roanoke 0
ROANOKE, Va. -- The freshman offensive attack continued to reap benefits for No. 4 Emory, and its defense recorded the squad's second shutout of the season, as the Eagles defeated Roanoke College 2-0 in the opening game of the Roanoke Invitational on Saturday.
Emory was able to jump out to a lead in the 16th minute of play, as freshman Charlotte Butker sent a short pass over the middle of the field and just outside the box to junior Lee Bachouros, who placed a long-distance shot into the upper corner of the net, out of the reach of Roanoke's keeper for her first goal of the season. The assist was the second in three games this season for Butker.
In the second half, after an injury to the Roanoke keeper delayed the game for over half an hour, the Eagles were able to extend their lead, with freshman Emily Feldman scoring her second goal of the season in the 71st minute. Assisting on the score was sophomore Kelly Costopoulos, her first of the season.
No. 5 Williams 2, Bates 0
LEWISTON, Me. -- No. 5 Williams started off its season on a winning note as they defeated Bates 2-0 on Saturday. Led by a goal from senior Brett Eisenhart and a second from sophomore Haley Cook, the Ephs took their first victory of the year.
In the 10th minute of the game, Eisenhart received a pass from Caitlyn Clark and found the back of the net to put the Ephs up early. Eisenhart and Clark were second in goals and assists respectively last season.
To add insurance for the Ephs, Cooke added a second goal in the 41st minute off of a pass from freshman Alison Magruder, who came off the bench for the Ephs.
On the defensive end for the Ephs, freshman goalkeeper Hannah Van Wetter turned away a penalty kick from Tina Tobin in the 29th minute.
