CHESTERTOWN, Md. -- Visiting Haverford College scored the game's only goal in the 55th minute of a 1-0 Centennial Conference women's soccer win over host Washington College tonight on Kibler Field at Roy Kirby, Jr. Stadium. The Fords improved to 7-6-3 overall and 3-5-1 with the win, while the Shorewomen fell to 3-10-3 and 0-7-2 with the loss.
Haverford held a 12-2 advantage in shots in the first half, but had little in the way of quality scoring chances. The Fords got a good chance early in the second half as Phoebe Miller had the ball on a breakaway, but sophomore goalkeeper Melissa Barry (Sparta, N.J./Sparta) made the save on Miller's shot at 45:21. The Fords got on the board at 54:11 when Jo Haller dribbled the ball through space and found the lower right-hand corner of the net from just outside the box for her first goal of the season.
Washington's best scoring chance came in the 63rd minute when freshman midfielder/forward Emani Silva (Odenton, Md./Arundel) was fouled on a breakaway, setting up a free kick. Silva sent a low shot to the right of Haverford goalkeeper Robin Chernow, who dove to make the save.
Barry made 10 saves in the loss for the Shorewomen, her eighth double-digit save performance of the season. Chernow made two stops for the Fords in the win. Haverford finished the game with a 22-4 advantage in shots and recorded nine of the game's 10 corner kicks.
The Shorewomen finish out their 2014 season Saturday with a 1:00 p.m. Centennial Conference game at McDaniel.
