BOBCATS DROP NESCAC OPENER, 4-1, AT AMHERST
AMHERST, Mass. -- Amherst College junior forward Abby Ouimet (Hatfield, Mass.) scored two goals and assisted another as the host Lord Jeffs spoiled the Bates College Bobcats' NESCAC opener, 4-1, in Amherst.
Ouimet tallied the only goal of the first half with 22:43 remaining when she blasted a shot between Bates' junior goalkeeper Lindsay's Gary's (Del Mar, Cal.) shin pads. Ouimet then poked home a crossing shot from senior tri-captain forward Marcy Busch (Scarsdale, N.Y.) for a 2-0 Amherst lead early in the second half. Amherst scored twice in a 90-second span late second stanza before Bates junior forward Johie Farrar (W. Paris, Maine) notched her fourth goal of the season, 12 seconds after Amherst's final goal.
Gary made nine saves in the losing effort, while Amherst senior Beth Sensing (Hockessin, Del.) had three stops for the win.
