Lady Cats Prove Themselves

Vermont senior goaltender Katie Duffy registered a career-high 20 saves and posted her second straight shutout as the Catamounts played to a 0-0 draw in double-overtime at Brown on Friday. Duffy’s 20 stops are the fourth most in a single game in school history and the most since Joey Fritz recorded 21 saves in the UVM net at Brown on October 13, 1990. The Bears out shot Vermont 30-11 in the contest and held a 10-2 advantage in corner kicks. Brown goalkeeper Sarah Gervais made four stops on the evening. On Sunday, the regionally ranked Harvard Crimson handed the Vermont women’s soccer team its first loss of the season with a 3-1 victory at Ohiri Field. The Catamounts opened up the game with a 1-0 lead behind an unassisted goal from Melissa Witkiewicz at the 3:30 mark. Harvard responded with two goals by Emily Colvin and Alisha Moran seven minutes apart to take a 2-1 lead at the half. Moran closed out the scoring with her second goal of the afternoon at 67:42 to lead Harvard to its first win of the season. The Crimson controlled much of the action, out shooting Vermont, 32-6. Harvard goalkeeper Katie Shields made two stops to pick up the victory. Vermont senior Katie Duffy collected 12 saves on the afternoon. Vermont continues its nine-game road trip with a swing through the Midwest. The Catamounts face Oklahoma State on Friday, September 12 and are at Oral Roberts University on Sunday, September 14.-Sports Info.
