Keene, N.H. – Keene State freshman Jessica Berthiaume had a hand in each of the Owls goals and host KSC shut out visiting Clark University 2-0 in non-league women’s soccer action on Wednesday evening.
The win improves Keene State's mark to 6-1-2, while the Cougars slip to 3-4. During its current six-game unbeaten streak, the Owls have outscored their opponents 22-4 and have three straight shutouts.
KSC got on the board first when Berthiaume scored her team-leading eighth goal of the season with help from Sia Karamourtopoulos in the 35th minute.
The Owls found the back of the net again just moments into the second half when Berthiaume set up Kelsie Bailey for the 2-0 edge.
Keene State then clamped down on defense and allowed only one Clark shot in the second half. The Owls outshot the Cougars 15-4 for the contest.
Joanna Clark (Windham, Maine) made ten stops for the Scarlet and White, while KSC netminder Megan Dempsey needed to only turn back two shots to post her fifth shutout of the season and extended her scoreless streak to 338:50.
The Owls return to action on Saturday when they travel to Eastern Connecticut State, while the road gets tougher for the Cougars who return home Saturday to face nationally-ranked Wheaton.
