Moinester leads Brandeis women past Case, 2-0, in UAA opener

CLEVELAND, Ohio -- Rookie back Margot Moinester (Memphis, Tenn.) had a goal and an assist today as the visiting Brandeis University women's soccer team defeated Case Western Reserve University, 2-0, in the University Athletic Association (UAA) opener for both teams today. Brandeis improves to 6-2-1, 1-0-0 UAA with the win, while Case falls to 3-6-2, 0-1-0 UAA.

Moinester scored her first collegiate goal just 44 seconds into the contest. Her shot from about 25 yards away sailed over the head of Spartan Lauren Gaeta (Parkton, Md.). Moinester helped the Judges double the lead in the 41st minute when she sent a ball through the middle that set up senior forward Lauren Gregor (Holliston, Mass.) for her team-leading eighth goal of the season.

Brandeis sophomore netminder Betsey Medow (Yorktown Heights, N.Y.) made five saves for the Judges for her third solo shutout of the season. Gaeta also had five saves in the losing effort.
