Women's Soccer Earns First Conference Win of the Season With a 1-0 Shutout at Nichols College

DUDLEY, Mass. – The Nichols College women's soccer team fell 1-0 to Curry in Commonwealth Coast Conference (CCC) action Saturday afternoon at Vendetti Field. 

Neither team really mustered up a lot of offense but the Colonels held the edge in the shot column 9-6 including 5-3 in the second half. 

After a scoreless first half, it did not take long for Curry to get on the board in the second half. At 45:50 senior Kelly Parker (Branford, Conn.) took a cross from classmate Kaitlyn Lima (New Bedford, Mass.) and put it in the back of the net for the eventual game-winning goal.

Junior Taylor Souza (New Bedford, Mass.) paced the Bison with four of the team's six shots while junior Danielle Barry (Springfield, Mass.) perhaps had the best opportunity for the Bison to get on the board in the game. At 59:31, Barry broke free of the defense and attempted to chip the ball over the goaltender but the ball trickled just wide.
Sophomore Brooke Downey (Middleboro, Mass.) made four saves in the loss while senior Morgan Stott (Dartmouth, Mass.) took the win after stopping three shots.
