After seven winless overtime matches, women's soccer finally experienced the other side. The Polar Bears beat Trinity last Saturday in a 3-2 overtime thriller.

Although Bowdoin was outshot 21-11, the team managed to secure the crucial victory.

In the 60th minute, NESCAC Player of the Week Ellery Gould '12 headed first year Abby Einwig's cross to the back of the net. Minutes later, Trinity's Jenny Ley tied the match, and later in the 78th minute scored to pull the Bantams ahead.

But Amanda Kinneston '15 connected with captain Celeste Swain '12 to answer Trinity's goal, bringing Bowdoin back into the competition less than a minute later.

The goal forced the season's eighth overtime. Five minutes in, Gould drove the ball past Trinity goalkeeper Lily Pepper for the decisive win.

On Wednesday, Bowdoin closed the regular season with yet another back-and-forth match. Though Bowdoin matched Tufts on shots, saves and corner kicks, the Polar Bears ultimately fell to the Jumbos 3-1.

Tufts quickly opened the scoring 7:55 into the game, but Kinneston evened the score, heading in the ball from a pass by Becky Stoneman '14.

Aggressive midfield play kept the game competitive for most of the second half, until the Jumbos capitalized on two loose balls in the box and sealed the victory.

No. 8 seed Bowdoin (6-4-3, 2-4-3 NESCAC) visits No. 1 Amherst (14-0-0, 10-0-0 NESCAC) tomorrow in the NESCAC quarterfinals.
