MILTON, Mass. - The Thomas College women's soccer team dropped a tough 1-0 match at Curry College on Sunday afternoon at Walter M. Katz Field.
With the win the Colonels move to 2-0 on the season while the Terriers drop to 0-2.
Curry controlled play in the first half holding a 10 shot advantage, 12-2. The Colonels got on the board first, just 8:56 into the contest. Cassandra Grasso was taken down and fouled in the box and was awarded a penalty shot. Grasso put the shot past Thomas keeper Kayla Gordon (Wiscasset, Maine) to put the Colonels up 1-0. The Terriers put two shots on goal on goal late in the first half from Taznae Fubler (Smiths, Bermuda) and Nikki Bradstreet (Topsham, Maine) but both were stopped by Curry keeper Kristen Buzzotta to keep the contest a 1-0 score going into the half.
The Colonels continued to control play in the second half, outshooting Thomas 13-1. The Terriers possessed the ball much better in the second half, getting onto the Curry half of the field but they were unable to find the back of the net as the PK from Grasso proved to be the game-winner.
Curry outshot Thomas 25-3 and held the advantage in corners, 8-0.
Buzzotta earned the shutout and victory in goal for the Colonels with three saves. Gordon made nine stops in net for the Terriers in the loss.
