Halle Becker '15 and Alex Rimmer '13 scored one goal apiece and Hamilton College blanked Bates College 2-0 in a NESCAC game played at Hamilton's Love Field on Sept. 29.
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 '15 was credited with an assist and Liza Gergenti '14 made three saves for her second shutout this year.
Anabel Schmelz '14 stopped three shots for Bates, which was shut out for the fifth time in six games. 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. Grund's assist was her first of 2012.
Hamilton hosts Williams College for another NESCAC game on Tuesday, Oct. 2. Bates (1-5-0, 1-4) travels to Tufts University for more conference action on Sunday, Sept. 30.
