Women's Soccer Loses Championship

The Engineers finished the season with a disappointing loss in the New England Women's 8 tournament Thursday by a score of 4-1. MIT finished the regular season 10-2-3 and 2-2-2 in the conference.

In the first half MIT was kept on the defensive by Wellesley's pressure. That pressure resulted in two Wellesley goals as Liza Janssen scored five minutes into the game and Martha Carnie with ten minutes left in the half.

In the second half MIT still could not get going as the ball was again mainly in the MIT half of the field. Janssen scored the two other Wellesley goals with 12 minutes in the half and 16 minutes left in the game. MIT's lone goal came with four minutes left when Chantal Wright '95 got her 11th goal on an assist from Dionne Chapman '94.

Head coach Suzan Rowe said, "It was a disappointing day at Steinbrenner Oval. I think we had a great season but just didn't put it together today. We just didn't play constructively."
