Women's Soccer, Smith Play To 1-1 Draw
, Oct. 19, 2004 – Springfield College junior midfielder Sarah Killeen (Meriden, Conn.)
scored her first career goal as the Pride and Smith College played to a 1-1 tie in a New England Women’s and Men’s Athletic Conference (NEWMAC) women’s soccer match this afternoon on Brock Affleck Field.

made three saves, while her counterpart, Smith junior Catherine Miller-Little faced just one shot on goal.
