Women's Soccer Picks Up Third Shutout Of The Season With 2-0 Win Over Northeastern

Oct. 8, 2002

PROVIDENCE, RI - Junior Molly Cahan (Encino, CA) scored her second goal in as many games, while sophomore Kim Boortz (Corona Del Mar, CA) stopped one shot in earning her first career shutout as Brown (4-4-2) defeated Northeastern (4-5-3), 2-0, in a non-conference game Tuesday evening at Stevenson Field.

After nearly 30 minutes of scoreless action, senior Kristin Nabb (Trumbull, CT) sent a long cross through the top of the box and Cahan one-timed the ball past Northeastern's Cynthia Slowik at the 28:26 mark. The goal, which proved to be the game-winner, was Cahan's second in as many games, while Nabb tallied her first point of the season.

The Bears controlled the tempo for the entire game, as the team played strong in front of Boortz, who was making her first collegiate start and was forced to make just one save, while earning her first career shutout.

Senior Caitlin Carey (Boxford, MA) connected with classmate Laura Iden (Kenilworth, NJ) at the 81:20 mark as Iden scred her third goal of the season to give the Bears the 2-0 lead.

Brown continues action on Friday, October 11th, when it hosts Sacred Heart in a 7:00 p.m. contest at Stevenson Field.
