Tobin propels women's soccer past Beavers, 2-0





FARMINGTON, Maine -- Sophomore forward Tina Tobin (Lowell, Mass.) collected a goal and an assist to lead Bates College past the University of Maine at Farmington 2-0 in non-conference women's soccer action at Prescott Field Wednesday afternoon.

The Bobcats improved to 4-6-1; the Bobcats next take a trip to Wesleyan University Saturday for an 11 a.m. NESCAC match.

Tobin got things rolling early for Bates, depositing a cross by Sam Rose (Toronto, Ontario) at 5:20 for a 1-0 lead. It was Tobin's team-leading fifth goal of the season, and her fourth in the past four games.

Despite a 16-4 command in shots in the opening half, the Bobcats could not expand their advantage as only five of their offerings were on goal.

Bates sophomore Alix Vendeventer (North Attleboro, Mass.) gave Bates a 2-0 advantage at 55:20 when she converted a pass by Tobin for her first goal of the season.

McKell Barnes (Durham, Maine) recorded seven saves for Farmington, which was outshot 23-5.

Sophomore goalie Annie Burns (Topsfield, Mass.) stopped two shots in the shutout, her fourth of the season.
