The Polar Bears continued their winning streak on Wednesday, trouncing the competition in an evening game at Husson. This win brought their current season tally to 12-0 with only two games left to play.

The Bears dominated the game against the Eagles early, with a goal from Katie Herter '12 leading the way to the final score of 4-0.

Herter scored a second goal with an assist from senior captain Ingrid Oelschlager, and toward the end of the first half, junior Emily French knocked a rebound back in to the goal to bring the score to 3-0.

In the second half, first year Lauren Schroeder scored her first goal of the season to bring the team to a 4-0 victory.

Last Saturday, the Polar Bears beat Williams, one of their toughest competitors of the year. The 1-0 victory was again thanks to Herter, who scored on a rebound during the second half of the game.

"They had a few opportunities [to respond] but defensively we played very well, and limited them to only a couple good shots," coach Nicky Pearson said. "We also didn't give away any penalty shots. We did well in shutting down key distributors and in intercepting passes and dispossessing players."

"We had control of the ball for the majority of the game," Oelschlager added. "We had lots of opportunities to score, but we just weren't making sure the ball was going in the net."

In the coming games, the team will be working on converting their opportunities.

"It all comes down to accuracy," Oelschlager said. "Often, other people in the circle just aren't ready, or our sticks aren't down, or we hit our feet, or the ball rebounds off the goalie's pads."

These next two weeks will bring the Polar Bears face-to-face with some of their toughest competition yet, as they will face talented squads from both Trinity and Tufts to battle it out for NESCAC rankings.

Tufts, who was undefeated until Trinity beat it last Saturday, may be the hardest.

"Trinity is just not very consistent," Oelschlager said. "They have a really good attack, they do well in fast break situations, but their defense is not consistent. We have a good consistent defense—it's a strength as a team that we're committed to playing good one-on-one defense throughout the game. At Trinity, for instance, the forwards don't play defense, they're not committed to getting the ball back."

"Our starting lineup is very strong," Pearson added. "We're just going to continue to focus on one game at a time."
