-The Lead: The Clark University women's soccer team was edged by the Colonels of Curry College, 1-0, in non-conference action on Tuesday evening. The Colonels pushed their winning streak to four games while the Cougars picked up their first loss of the season.

HOW IT HAPPENED

-The first half of play was fairly even between the teams as Curry had a slight edge in shots, 6-4.

The tally remained the only scoring for the rest of the half.

-The squads were equal in corners (3-3) after 45 minutes of play.

-Following the intermission, the Cougars would come out on the attack. Clark outshot Curry 17-3 in the stanza, forcing the Colonels goalkeeper Katelyn DeMaio (North Andover, Mass.) to come up with 10 clutch saves in the period.

-Even with the Cougars pressuring to score and having a 7-0 advantage in corners, they were unable to score the equalizer, which preserved the one-goal victory for Curry.
