Meg Pengue '13 scored with just one minute, 49 seconds left in the second half to lift visiting Hamilton College to a 1-0 win over Skidmore College in a 2009 Liberty League tournament semifinal game at Wachenheim Field on Nov. 4.
Hamilton (9-5-1 overall) -- the tournament’s third seed -- advances to the tournament's championship game. The Continentals will play No. 1 seed William Smith College at William Smith on Saturday, Nov. 7, at 11 a.m.
The Continentals had not played since they defeated Skidmore by the same 1-0 score at home in the regular season finale on Oct. 25. With less than two minutes left, Pengue lined up a corner kick. Her kick found its way through a crowd of offensive and defensive players, and into the back of the net for her first collegiate goal.
Skidmore (11-4-3) held an 18-5 advantage in shots, and also had a slight edge in corner kicks, 4-3. Kate Fowler ‘10 stopped all seven shots she faced, including a scoring opportunity late in the second half when she came up with a diving save to keep Skidmore off the scoreboard. Fowler earned her fourth shutout this season.
Hamilton is 3-0-1 in its last four games. The Continentals improved to 4-4-1 all-time in the league tournament. The Continentals will be aiming for their second tournament title on Saturday.
