The women’s soccer team (6-4-3, 0-2-1 Ivy) won 3-0 against University of Rhode Island (1-11-1) this afternoon.
After an uneventful first half, the Bears scored two goals within the first five minutes of the second half. The first came off the foot of midfielder Maddie Wiener ’14 (Wiener was the Ivy League rookie of the week last week–with good reason) when she booted it from the sideline and managed to get it past the surprised and unsuspecting URI goalie. Wiener also assisted in the second goal along with midfielder Gloria Chun ’12; the two managed to get the ball to midfielder co-captain Gina Walker ’11 to score after the URI goalie fumbled the ball.
The third goal came off a free kick from forward/midfielder Mika Siegelman ’14. Although technically unassisted, she managed to get some help from the URI defenders–the ball deflected off of them and into the net.
The team plays again at home this Saturday, 2 pm, against Harvard. Be sure to cheer on the Bears at this rivalry game!
