Brandeis women halt slide with 1-0 win at St. Joseph's (Maine)

STANDISH, Maine -- The Brandeis University women's soccer team snapped its four-match losing streak today with a 1-0 victory over St. Joseph's College.

Brandeis (7-6-1) and St. Joseph's (8-6) played an extremely even game, with Brandeis outshooting the Monks, 15-11, and the corner kick totals even at four aside. The lone goal game with just under three minutes left in regulation when the Judges' high-powered combination of senior Lauren Gregor (Holliston, Mass.) and Lisa Kaplin (Armonk, N.Y.) connected for the third time this season. Kaplin's seventh goal of the season trails only Gregor's eight this year, while Gregor moved into second on the team with her third assist.

Brandeis sophomore goalkeeper Betsey Medow (Yorktown Heights, N.Y.) made three saves for her fourth shutout of the campaign. The Judges are next in action on Wednesday at Plymouth State University for their final non-conference match of the season.
