The women's soccer team won its 10th game of the season Friday, beating Clark University 2-1 at Steinbrenner Stadium. This brings MIT's record to 10-2-2 overall with two non-league games and the league tournament to finish out the season.

MIT played a strong defensive game in the first half, keeping Clark off the score board. In the second half, MIT scored first as Becky Hill '95 made her 18th goal of the season nine minutes into the second half.

However, Priya Costa of Clark tied the game with 18 minutes left in the game. Finally, Chantal Wright '95 scored her tenth goal and the winning goal of the match with five minutes left on an assist from Hill.

Head coach Suzan Rowe said the team had a great second half. "The game was in the second half essentially. In the first half, we played very good defense. In the second half, the object of the game was to get the ball in the air and we did that," she said.

The women's soccer team plays today at Colby Sawyer College, Thursday in the New England Women's 8 Tournament, and closes the season Sunday at Smith College.
