SMITHFIELD, R.I. – Senior midfielder Kara Borden (Taunton, Mass.) scored her second goal of the season 1:04 into the game, and that stood up as the
game-winner Sunday afternoon, leading Plymouth State College to a 2-0 win over Bryant College at the Bryant Field Hockey Complex.

Freshman goalkeeper Ellen Ward (Thorndike, Maine) made four saves to help PSC record its fourth straight shutout.

Borden’s goal, which was assisted by senior Courtney O’Sullivan (East Kingston, NH), gave the Panthers an early lead. Junior Sarah Lynch (Belgrade Lakes,
Maine) made it a 2-0 game when she beat Bulldog goalkeeper Meghan Lovell (Marshfield, Mass.) with 15:15 left in the first half.

Bryant controlled play in the second half, outshooting the Panthers by a 5-0 margin in the final 35 minutes, but Ward kicked aside eight shots to keep the Bulldogs
off the board. The whitewash was the first game this season in which Bryant did not score a goal. Ward, enjoying an amazing freshman season for Plymouth State,
registered her fifth shutout and extended her scoreless streak to 320 minutes and 30 seconds.

The Panthers won their eighth straight game and improved to 8-3 overall, while Bryant fell to 3-9.

PSC is back in action Tuesday (Oct. 10) at Arold Field with a Little East Conference affair against Framingham State (4:30 p.m.)
