NEW LONDON, CONN.--(9/27/11)--Freshman forward Grace Bilodeau scored twice and Trish Guay assisted on both goals to lead the host Connecticut College Camels to a 2-0 victory against the Coast Guard in the annual showdown of Route 32 Rivals.
The Camels improve to 1-3-1 with the win, while the Bears fall to 4-3-1. Connecticut College leads the all-time series 11-to-1.
Rookie net-minder Natalie Signor stopped seven shots en route to her first collegiate shutout for the Camels.
Senior Mary Mills, the reigning New England Men's and Women's Athletic Conference (NEWMAC) Defensive Player of the Week, had five saves for the Bears.
Ali McKeigue nearly put the Camels on top in the fifth minute of action, when she blasted a shot from the 18 yard line but it caromed off the post and the game remained scoreless.
But in the ninth minute of action, Guay delivered a cross from the right side and Bilodeau was able to get a head on it for her second goal of the season. The Camels nearly scored their second goal with 38 seconds left. Celia Alvarez tested Mills with a low blast from point blank range but the Bears keeper was able to make the sprawling save.
Later on in the 50th minute, Guay assisted Bilodeau for her second goal and the Camels were able to hold on for the 2-0 win.
Connecticut College held a 26-to-12 advantage in shots.
