CAMBRIDGE, Mass. – MIT yielded a rare and unfortunate own goal in the 64th minute on Saturday as Salem State women’s soccer remained undefeated with a 1-0 decision at Roberts Field.
The Engineers (1-4-0) out-shot the Lady Vikings (4-0-0), 6-3, and were poised to deliver the mild upset until an untimely deflection off a cross by Amber Warnick gave the visitors the lone marker of the match. MIT controlled the midfield for a majority of the contest, but was unable to generate a serious threat.
Leah Potcner made two stops en route to her fourth consecutive shutout to begin her collegiate career while MIT keeper Stephanie Brenman was untested until making a save in the 87th minute.
The Lady Vikings have been impressive on the defensive end to begin the 2008 campaign, completing the first two weeks of the regular season without allowing a goal.
