Bobcats of the week of Oct 29, 2007

Rob Friedlander '10
Bates sophomore forwardRob Friedlander(Hopkinton, N.H.) hadn't scored this season until 15 minutes remained of the 2007 men's soccer season. That's when first-year Tyler Dewdney'sshot was deflected by Colby goaltender Doug Sibor. The quick-footed Friedlander was there to chest the ball in from inside the penalty box, giving Bates a 3-2 lead and erasing a 2-1 deficit from just two minutes beforehand (Patrick Graterhad evened the game at 2-2 in the 75th minute.)The Bobcats held on for the remaining 14 minutes for their first NESCAC victory in a tough season that, thanks to Friedlander's goal, suddenly became more palatable.
Amy Werblin '09
Junior forward Amy Werblin(Huntington Beach, Calif.) came through with the winning goal at Colby last weekend in a game that was 2 minutes and 52 seconds away from ending in a tie.Werblin's second goal this season arrived in the 108th minute of play, immediately giving Bates a 1-0 victory, their first in NESCAC play as the difficult 2007 season came to its conclusion.
