The women's soccer team earned its second victory of the season last Saturday by outscoring Brandeis 2-1 at home. Despite a slow start in which Brandeis took seven of the game's first eight shots, the Polar Bears went on the offensive midway through the second half, scoring twice in under 10 minutes.

The first goal came from Stacie Sammott '13 at the 59:46 mark. Captain Ellery Gould '12 then gave the team some cushioning after scoring off a pass from Amanda Kinneston '15 to put the team up 2-0 at 69:12. The Judges scored with less than seven minutes remaining, but it was not enough, as the Polar Bears walked away with the win.

Gould currently sits two goals away from becoming the program's all-time leading scorer, as Marte Holden '84 holds the record at 38.

Bowdoin improved to 2-1-1 with the victory and Brandeis dropped to 2-3-1. The Polar Bears will look for their first conference win this weekend when they host Middlebury (1-1-1) on Saturday and travel to Williams (3-1) on Sunday.

Instead of taking the day off following their Saturday game, the athletes worked hard in practice on Sunday to "simulate the upcoming NESCAC double header," said senior captain Celeste Swain. "We are preparing for this weekend by having highly competitive practices from start to finish."
