No. 24 Springfield Women's Soccer Defeats Clark, 3-0, in NEWMAC Semifinal; to Play MIT in Final

No. 24 Springfield Women's Soccer Defeats Clark, 3-0, in NEWMAC Semifinal; to Play MIT in Final

SPRINGFIELD, Mass. - Behind three different goal-scorers, the Springfield College women's soccer team defeated Clark University, 3-0, in the first New England Women's and Men's Athletic Conference semifinal post-season tournament game this afternoon at Brock-Affleck Field at the Irv Schmid Sports Complex.

Springfield is the defending champion. In fact, the Pride has won two of the last three NEWMAC crowns, earning the automatic NCAA Tournament bids. Springfield will be playing in its sixth NEWMAC Tournament final in the last 11 years on Sunday.

With the win, Springfield raises its record to 14-3-1, while Clark ends its season at 7-9-3.

Springfield drew first blood at the 20:15 mark. senior forward Katie Mantie (Wallingford, Conn.) slipped a pass between two Clark defenders to senior midfielder Jackie Moscardelli (Weymouth, Mass.) in front of the net. Moscardelli shot it to the right side of the net past Clark senior goalkeeper Audrey Eisemann (Worcester, Mass.) for the early 1-0 lead.

The score remained 1-0 until the final minute of the first half. After a Pride corner kick led to a crowd in front of the Cougars’ net, sophomore midfielder Karleigh Bradbury (South Portland, Me.) emerged with the loose ball. Bradbury turned and fired to the top left corner of the net for Springfield’s second strike and a 2-0 halftime lead.

Springfield scored a third goal at 75:21. Senior forward Amber Thornton (Troy, N.Y.) fired from 30 yards and found the top left corner for the score. The goal, which ricocheted off the left post, put the Pride up 3-0, which would stand as the final score.

Springfield outshot Clark, 17-4 for the contest. Eisemann stopped six shots while Pride junior goalkeeper Erin Greenstein (Framingham, Mass.) recorded three saves and the shutout.
