WORCESTER, MASS.--(10/1/11)--Sophomore striker Janelle Pasternack scored the game's lone goal in the 72nd minute, propelling host Clark University to a 1-0 win over Coast Guard in New England Women's and Men's Athletic Conference (NEWMAC) women's soccer action.
The win for the Cougars (3-6-1, 1-1-1 NEWMAC), snaps a six match winless streak, while the Bears (4-4-1, 0-2-1 NEWMAC) have not scored in their last three games.
Clark controlled the game but couldn't find the back of the net despite having several excellent chances. The first came at the 16:46 mark when Jenna Zarou hit the crossbar on a shot from the left of the box. Later, Zarou found herself open with the ball in the front of the net but her shot found the center of Coast Guard goalkeeper Mary Mills' chest.
Sara Conway had the best chance of all when Mills lost control of a ball and her shot on a wide open net went wide left at the 64:36.
The Cougars finally got on the board at 71:34 when Zarou's pass off of a corner kick went to Pasternack who blasted a shot past Mills for her first marker of the season.
Clark held 24-7 edge in overall shots, but just a 7-2 advantage in shots on goal.
Mills made six saves for the Bears, while Audrey Eisemann just needed to make two saves to collect her third shutout of the season.
