CLINTON, N.Y. -- Halle Becker and Alex Rimmer scored one goal apiece and Hamilton College blanked the Bates College women's soccer team 2-0 in a NESCAC game played at Hamilton's Love Field on Saturday.
Rimmer moved into third place on the Continentals' all-time list, with 72 career points on 33 goals and six assists. She leads Hamilton this year with 10 points (4 goals, 2 assists). Emily Grund was credited with an assist and Liza Gergenti made three saves for her second shutout this year.
Bates junior Anabel Schmelz (Monmouth Beach, N.J.) stopped three shots for Bates. The Continentals owned a 15-6 shot advantage, and took nine corner kicks to two for the Bobcats.
Hamilton (6-1-0 overall, 4-1 NESCAC) grabbed a 1-0 lead in the 28th minute on Becker's unassisted goal, as her hard shot from outside the box slid underneath the crossbar. Becker has three goals and eight points this year. The Continentals led 1-0 at the break.
Rimmer clinched the win with her goal in the 69th minute. Grund worked her way into the box and passed off to Rimmer, who fired a low shot that got past Schmelz.
Bates (1-5-0, 1-4) travels to Tufts University for more conference action tomorrow at 12:30pm. (Video)
