WALTHAM, MA - What was a 1-0 deficit through the first 23:00 turned into a 3-0 hole at halftime, snowballing into a 10-0 Brandeis victory over Lesley on Tuesday afternoon at Gordon Field.
The Judges (12-3-1), ranked No. 26 in the most recent NSCAA Division III Rankings released today, got on the board at 10:34 on the first of Sofia Vallone's three goals. Madeline Stein scored at 23:09 on a pass through the box from Mimi Theodore, who at 25:55 assisted on Vallone's second strike to make it 3-0 Brandeis.
Through halftime, Lesley (10-5-2) was outshot 13-6, earning the contest's only corner kick.
The Judges, though, were just getting started, as Vallone returned the favor to Theodore at 52:04. Stein scored her second of the day and third of the year at 58:03, and, leading 7-0 after two more goals, Vallone notched her 15th of the season at 82:15.
