Bowdoin College scored three goals in the second half and the nationally ranked No. 20 Polar Bears posted a 3-1 NESCAC win against the visiting Hamilton College Continentals in Brunswick, Maine, on Oct. 12.
Hamilton (3-3-2 overall, 1-3-2 NESCAC) took a 1-0 lead just 2:15 into the second half. Kendall Daly '17 won a contested ball in front of the goal and put it into the lower right corner of the net for her team-high fourth goal this year. Daly also leads the Continentals with nine points.
Bowdoin (8-1-1, 4-1-1) tied the score on a goal by Abby Hammerl in the 70th minute. Abby Einwag sent a ball high into the box that put Hammerl in position for a one-on-one with the goalie. Kiersten Turner put the Polar Bears ahead for good in the 80th minute. Turner took a pass from Amanda Kinneston and struck a low shot into the goal.
Kinneston added an insurance goal two minutes later. She converted a pass from Turner, who trapped a through ball and played it ahead to Kinneston, and closed out the scoring.
Hamilton outshot the Polar Bears 12-9, and owned an 8-3 corner kick advantage. Bridget McCarthy made seven stops for Bowdoin and Liza Gergenti '14 stopped one shot for the Continentals.
