Defense dominates in 3-0 win over Wellesley

WELLESLEY, Mass. (courtesy Wellesley College) – The Brandeis University women's soccer team outshot host Wellesley College, 29-5, today en route to a 3-0 win. The Judges allowed just two shots on goal for the entire contest in recording their fifth shutout of the season.

Brandeis (6-2-1) got on the board at the 31:04 mark, when rookie forward Alanna Torre (Weston, Fla.) found the back of the net off a corner-kick assist from sophomore back Taryn Martiniello (Wilmington, Mass.). Judge rookie reserve Kaitlin Oldfield (Raymond, N.H.) scored seven minutes later on an assist from Torre to give Brandeis a 2-0 lead into the break. The visitors added a security goal early in the second period, when sophomore Tiffany Pacheco (Rehoboth, Mass.) scored off an assist from junior midfielder Melissa Gorenkoff (Woodbury, N.Y.).

Wellesley goalkeeper Katie Martore (Great Falls, Va.) was busy between the posts, facing 29 shots while tallying seven saves. Brandeis junior Hillary Rosenzweig (Boca Raton, Fla.) notched two saves for the Judges.

Brandeis returns to action on Saturday, October 4, when the Judges travel to the University of Rochester for a 4:00pm game, their University Athletic Association opener. Wellesley takes the
field on Saturday as well, as they travel to Mount Holyoke for a 1:00pm
NEWMAC game.
