Women's soccer falls to No. 7 Williams
Brett Eisenhart '12 scored two goals and Hannah Van Wetter '15 stopped all three shots she faced to lead nationally ranked No. 7 Williams College to a 4-0 NESCAC win over Hamilton College at Williams' Lamb Field on Oct. 4.
Williams (6-1-1 overall, 3-0-1 NESCAC) got off to a fast start with three goals in the first 17 minutes. The all-time series between the two programs is now tied at 1-1.
Eisenhart's goals were her sixth and seventh of the season. Haley Cook '14 and Sarah Brink '15 also scored goals for the Ephs, and Caitlyn Clark '13 and Louisa Costa '15 were each credited with an assist.
The Ephs got on the board in the eighth minute when Cook got behind the defense and put the ball past Hamilton goalkeeper Melanie Miller '15 (three saves) for a 1-0 lead.
The Ephs scored again just 1:49 later when Clark found a streaking Eisenhart, who lofted the ball over Miller's head to make it 2-0. Clark and Eisenhart connected again in the 17th minute as Clark found Eisenhart in the 6-yard box. Eisenhart gathered and played the ball into the far corner of the Hamilton net. Brink ended the scoring in the 88th minute.
Hamilton (5-4-0, 3-3) had its best opportunity to score midway through the second half when Williams defender Carla Nicasio '14 stepped in front of the open goal to block a shot. A few minutes later, Alex Rimmer '13 blasted a shot off the crossbar. Williams held a 17-11 shot advantage.
Hamilton hosts Middlebury College for a NESCAC game on Saturday, Oct. 8, at noon. Williams hosts Amherst College for a NESCAC game on Saturday as well.
