NEW LONDON, Conn.-The Coast Guard women's soccer team snapped a two-game goal-less streak with a 2-0 victory over visiting Mass. Maritime Tuesday night at the CGA Track Complex. With the victory, Coast Guard improves to 3-4-0 on the season while the defeat was the first that Mass. Maritime suffered on the year as they drop to 1-1-2.
The Bears got on the board first when freshman Terry Netusil took a cross from senior Kristen Euchler and after settling on one touch pushed a shot by sophomore goalkeeper Katie Levesque to the far post. The goal, her second of the season, came in the 13th minute.
After bombarding the Mass. Maritime defense throughout the first half the Bears finally gave themselves some breathing room in the 40th minute. Freshman Brianna Grisell settled a through ball from junior Lindsay Duplessis before beating Levesque to the near side for the first goal of her career.
Coast Guard dominated possession from the outset and never allowed Mass. Maritime to register a shot. Senior Devin Fellman didn't have to make any saves in recording her second shutout win of the season for the Bears to improve her overall record to 2-2 on the season. Levesque took the loss in goal for the Buccaneers despite 17 saves and falls to 1-1-2 on the season.
The Bears were able to use 21 players in a game that was never in doubt after the first goal. They outshot the Buccaneers 54-0 while holding edges of 6-1 and 4-1 in corner kicks and fouls, respectively.
Coast Guard returns to action on Saturday, September 21st when they host Springfield (3-1-0) in their New England Women's and Men's Athletic Conference opener.
