Second Half Goal Lifts Babson Past Women's Soccer

Second Half Goal Lifts Babson Past Women's Soccer

BABSON PARK, Mass.— The Lesley University women's soccer team suffered their first blemish of the 2015 season, falling 1-0 to host Babson College this afternoon in non-conference play at Hartwell-Rogers Field. The loss drops the Lynx to an even 1-1 on the season while the Beavers improve to 2-0.

After a scoreless first half, Babson freshman Jessica Fernandes (Pawtucket, R.I.) notched her first collegiate goal in the 63rd minute when she one-timed a pass at the mouth of the goal from fellow first year Kathryn Clark (Cape Elizabeth, Maine) for the game's only score.

The Lynx had an opportunity to answer just a minute later, but sophomore Karlie Rubin's (San Diego, Calif.) shot was saved by Babson keeper Elizabeth Mycock (Windham, Maine).

Babson finished with a 13-2 advantage in shots and a 2-1 edge in corners on the afternoon. Mycock stopped a pair of shots for her second straight shutout. Lynx sophomore Lilly Donovan (Newburyport, Mass.) was credited with two first-half saves, while senior Jackie Berard (Coventry, R.I.) made three stops and allowed the lone goal in the second 45-minute frame.

Both teams will retake the field tomorrow as the Lynx travel to Wellesley College at 2:30p while the Beavers will play host to Simmons College. Kick off for that match is also set for 2:30p.
