Collins Second-Half Strike Propels Women's Soccer Past Clark, 1-0

Erin Greenstein Box Score

Worcester, Mass. - October 19, 2010 - Springfield College senior Brittany Collins scored the game’s lone goal in the 63rd minute, lifting the visiting Pride to a 1-0 win over Clark University in New England Women’s and Men’s Athletic Conference (NEWMAC) women’s soccer action on Tuesday evening.

The victory for Springfield is their fifth straight and pushes their record to 11-4 overall and they remain atop the league standings with a 6-1 ledger in conference play.

The Cougars, meanwhile, slip to 5-10 overall and 2-5 in NEWMAC play. Since Clark’s upset of nationally-ranked Wheaton back on September 25, they have dropped six of their subsequent seven games including three straight.

The stats were pretty even with Springfield holding a 12-10 edge in shots, and the Cougars led with a 4-1 edge in corner kicks.

Pride netminder Erica Greenstein recorded her seventh shutout of the season with her six save performance. Cougar keeper Joanna Clark turned back five shots in a valiant effort in net for the Scarlet and White.

Springfield controls its own destiny and earn the right to host the conference tournament if it wins its final two conference games. The Pride's first challenge will come on Saturday afternoon when it takes on Babson, who will enter the contest tied for second in the league standings with a 5-1-1 record.
