Gregor leads Brandeis women past NYU, 3-1, on senior day

WALTHAM, Mass. – Senior forward Lauren Gregor (Holliston, Mass.) registered a five-point game in her final regular-season contest today, taking part in all three goals as the Brandeis University women's soccer team defeated visiting New York University, 3-1, in a University Athletic Association (UAA) contest on Gordon Field.

Brandeis (8-8-1, 2-5-0 UAA) got on the board with the only goal of the first half in the 13th minute. Gregor intercepted a pass from a Violet defender and rocketed it home for her ninth goal of the season.

NYU (7-9-1, 1-6-0 UAA) scored the equalizer in a similar fashion early in the second half. With just 18 seconds elapsed, junior midfielder Whitney Dipollina (Waterford, Conn.) took an ill-advised Brandeis pass and blasted it just under the crossbar from about 25 yards out.

The Judges broke the deadlock with just over five minutes remaining in regulation. Gregor took a corner kick that bounded through the goal box and onto the waiting foot of sophomore midfielder Lizzie Bremner (San Rafael, Calif.). Bremner slammed it home for her third goal of the season.

Gregor added an insurance goal in the 88th minute when she emerged from a scrum and slid the ball under the goalie and into the far end of the net. With the goal, Gregor reached 10 goals in a season for the third time in her career. She is now in sole possession of second place on the Judges' career goal-scoring list with 29 and second on the points list with 96.

For Brandeis, sophomore Betsey Medow (Yorktown Heights, N.Y.) made five saves for the win, while sophomore Katie Barnes (Boston, Mass./Boston Latin) had seven stops for the Violets.
