Sept. 3, 2004

Box Score

PROVIDENCE, RI - The Brown University (1-0-0) women's soccer team earned a commanding 3-0 victory over Sacred Heart (1-2-0) on Friday evening at Stevenson Field. Sophomore Kathleen Waddell's (St. Louis Park, MN) first career goal in the 54th minute would prove to be the game-winner.

After a scoreless first half, during which the Bears controlled the majority of play and maintained possession for nearly the entire 45 minutes, Waddell gave Brown a 1-0 lead at the 53:16 mark. Sophomore Jill Mansfield (East Windsor, NJ) served a flip-throw into the box, which Waddell headed into the upper right corner over an outstretched Ashley Mocarski in the Sacred Heart net.

Nearly 25 minutes later, junior co-captain Meghan Schreck (Hudson, MA) increased Bruno's lead to 2-0 with her first goal of the season. Sophomore Kathryn Moos (Wayzata, MN), who led the Bears last season with 20 points, crossed the ball to her left from the end-line, where Schreck was waiting to head the ball past the goalie and into the opposite corner of the net.

Brown added an insurance goal with just over 18 seconds remaining in the game when freshman Anne Friedland (Toronto, ONT) connected with junior Christine Serdjenian (Waterville, ME), who dribbled through three defenders, before sliding the ball past Mocarski.

In net for the Bears, junior Hillary Wilson (Monterey, CA) stopped five shots to earn the shutout in her Brown debut. The Bears continue action on Sunday, September 5, when they host George Mason in a 1:00 match at Stevenson Field.
