Endicott Stadium—Beverly, Mass.

Babson and Endicott will meet for the sixth consecutive season on Tuesday in a series that dates back to 2008. The Beavers hold a 3-2 edge all-time over the Gulls and have won two consecutive one-goal games.

Current senior Meghan Andrew scored off a feed from classmate Carley Martyniak just 4:08 into the second half and Babson made it stand up for a 1-0 win on September 25, 2012 in Babson Park.

Colleen Pepin scored the game's only goal 4:06 into the first extra session to give the Gulls a 1-0 OT victory over the Beavers on September 23, 2010 in Babson Park.

Endicott (4-3-1) has rallied from a 0-3-1 start to win its last four matches, including a 2-1 double overtime victory at then-13th ranked Roger Williams on Saturday. Laura Wysocki scored a pair of goals, including the game winner at the 103:06 mark, as the Gulls opened Commonwealth Coast Conference action with a win. Katie Donnelly made six saves for Endicott, which was outshot 19-6. The Gulls have had 10 different players tally at least one goal through their first eight matches, led by Wysocki's two scores. Senior Nicole Fournier is second on the team with three points. Donnelly has posted a 0.88 goals against average to go along with a .833 save percentage and one shutout in eight starts.

Babson (6-0-1) is off to its best start since 1992 following a 3-0 victory over Mount Holyoke on Saturday. Junior Jenny Moore, who was selected as the NEWMAC Offensive Player of the Week on Monday, scored twice, and Andrew chipped in with a late tally as the Beavers ran their home-unbeaten streak to nine games. First-year Jennifer Narlee was selected as the conference Defensive Player of the Week, helping to anchor a defense that allowed just one goal last week and posted its fifth shutout of the season in a pair of wins. Moore, who leads Babson with five goals, and fellow junior Jessica DiPhilippo, who is tied for the NEWMAC lead with five assists, are tied for third in the conference with 11 points. Junior Melina Kapotsis and first-year Meaghan Merullo have posted a 0.42 goals against average and a .875 save percentage though seven matches.

Through Sunday's contests, the Beavers are one of 20 NCAA Division III women's soccer teams that are unbeaten in 2013.
