NEW LONDON, Conn.—Junior Michelle Medina (Hartford, Conn.) scored a goal and assisted on two others to lead the 18th ranked Connecticut College women's soccer team to a 5-0 victory against Brooklyn College Monday.
The Camels, ranked #3 in New England, improved their record to 9-1. The Bulldogs evened their mark at 5-5-2 with the setback.
Sophomore Alex Baltazar (Ludlow, Mass.) chipped in with a goal and an assist in the triumph. She leads the Camels with eight goals scored and 19 points this fall. Jess Foley (Lexington, Mass.) and Samantha Miesemer (Garden City, N.Y.) netted the first goals of their career in the first half scoring surge. Junior Lauren Steele (Westford, Mass.) chipped in with a goal. Rookie midfielder Zoë Stublarec (Rockfall, Conn.) dished out two assists in the triumph.
Junior Bryanna Montalvo (Rocky Hill, Conn.) logged 29 minutes of action in goal. Rookie keeper Michaela Fiore (Charlotte, Vt.) recorded two saves over the closing 61 minutes of play.
Brooklyn senior keeper Samantha Rodriguez (Brooklyn, N.Y.) made five saves in the loss. The Bulldogs also were bolstered by impressive performances from senior Jasmine Fermin (Brooklyn, N.Y.), sophomore back Ciara Flynn (Belle Harbor, N.Y.) and rookie forward Victoria Ramirez (Valley Stream, N.Y.).
The Camels wasted little time breaking through on the scoreboard. Medina delivered a nice pass to Baltazar on the wing and the sophomore forward knocked in her eighth goal of the season to put the hosts on top for good just 28 seconds into regulation. In the fifth minute of action, Medina and Baltazar connected again. Baltazar had some open netting but selflessly played the ball back to Medina who found some open netting with her second goal of the season.
In the seventh minute of action, Medina executed with a nifty looking pass to Foley, who beat Rodriguez to the far post with a low blast from the six yard line.
Stublarec was the facilitator on the next two goals, connecting with Steele in the 18th minute before the Camels closed out the scoring in the 20th minute of action on Miesemer's blast from the 18 yard line.
Next up for the Camels will be a key conference match up against Tufts University this Saturday.
