WELLESLEY, Mass. – Jessica DiPhilippo's sixth minute goal proved to be the difference maker, as the Babson College women's soccer team posted a 1-0 victory over Bridgewater State University in game two of the Wellesley College Soccer Classic. In the earlier game, Keene State upended Wellesley, 2-0.
DiPhilippo used a nice turn-around move in front of the goal to dodge a defender and get a clean shot off. The goal sailed to the left side of the net, out of the reach of the Bridgewater keeper for the 1-0 lead.
Bridgewater's best chances to score came in the final ten minutes of play, as Katie Nasuti and Olivia Creonte each managed shots on goal. However, Babson keeper Lisa Wojnar stopped both attempts to seal the Beaver win.
Babson ended the contest with a 21-9 edge in shots, as well as a 5-1 advantage in corner kick opportunities.
Wojnar was solid for the Beavers, picking up five saves and earning her third shutout of the season. Bridgewater's Kristen Rowe and Kerry Condon split time in net, each posting two saves.
The Wellesley Classic continues tomorrow afternoon at Babson, where the Beavers will host Keene State at 1:00pm, and Wellesley and Bridgewater State will square off at 3:30pm.
