By Carol Martinez

Team Members

The women's soccer team has started the season with a 2-1 record. This year's team has the potential to be the strongest in MIT's history.

In the opening game, MIT defeated New England College by a score of 4-2. Celia Fleming '93 pulled off a hat trick, while Chantel Wright '95 put in one of her own. MIT dominated the game, taking 27 shots compared to NEC's seven.

In the next game, Wright scored against Mt. Holyoke, but that wasn't enough to overcome their strong passing game. MIT bounced back to defeat Elms College by a score of 4-1. Celia Fleming's goal in the first five minutes of the game started MIT off on the right foot. Chantel Wright added to the score by putting in a direct kick. In the second half, Rebecca Hill '95 scored twice within two minutes, both times on breakaways.

The team plays at home against Wheaton on Sept. 26.
