No. 15 Bowdoin Flies by the Gulls

BRUNSWICK, Maine - Bowdoin scored the first four goals of the game and never looked back in a 15-5 win over Endicott on Tuesday afternoon at Ryan Field.

Chelsea Albright, Katie Stewart and Carolyn Gorajek had two tallies apiece, while first-years Jordan Smith and Olivia King recorded their first career goals for the Polar Bears. Morgan DeShaw led the Gulls with a pair of scores.

The Polar Bears responded with another four-goal surge, capped by Clegg's goal, to take an 8-2 lead at intermission. DeShaw's second goal early in the second period made it 8-3, but McKenna Teague answered for the hosts just 22 seconds later to key a 3-0 run that extended Bowdoin's lead to 11-3 with 18:17 remaining.

Bowdoin's defense, led by Stewart's four caused turnovers and three ground balls, forced 21 Endicott turnovers overall.
