BATES SENIORS LEAD MEN'S SOCCER PAST BOWDOIN, 2-1
BRUNSWICK, Maine -- Bates College senior captain Eric Trickett (Windham, N.H.) scored the game-winning goal in the 65th minute as the Bobcats upset Bowdoin in Brunswick, 2-1.
The Bobcats (9-5) got on the board early when senior Stephen Coco (Auburn, N.H.) took a pass at the top of the box from junior tri-captain Andy Apstein (Waban, Mass.) and shot over the head of Bowdoin senior goalkeeper Eric Buxton (Sudbury, Mass.) in the fourth minute.
Bowdoin (11-3) answered late in the half when first-year midfielder Dave Bulow (Denver, Colo.) knocked a free kick off the Bates wall and caromed it past Bates goalie Brian Anton (Boca Raton, Fla.).
Trickett notched the game winner against Bowdoin goalie Tom Casarella (Ashford, Conn.) 20 minutes into the second half. He stole the ball from a Bowdoin defender and shot it under a diving Casarella.
Anton made six saves in the win, while Buxton and Casartella combined for seven Polar Bear stops. Bates has won six of its last eight games, while Bowdoin sees its eight game winning streak snapped.
