POTSDAM — Christine Bellotti '14 scored early in the second overtime to lead the Skidmore College women's soccer team to a 1-0 Liberty League win at Clarkson University on Saturday.
The Thoroughbreds (5-2, 11-4) remain in second place with one league game to play. The Golden Knights fall to 1-5-1 in league play and 8-5-1 overall. Skidmore has already clinched a Liberty League berth and can finish anywhere from second to fourth with one league game to play.
Skidmore dominated the game, not allowing a Clarkson shot on goal. The Thoroughbreds outshot the home team 24-3.
The tie-breaking score came in the 103rd minute as Skidmore found itself with a 2-on-1 chance. Morgan Governale '15 had just one defender to beat for a shot on the Clarkson goal, but sent a pass across the box to Kelsey Yam '13. Yam returned the favor to Governale and she took a shot from in close that hit the left post and bounced out with a few swings missing on the clear. There, Bellotti was able to hit a soft grounder into the net, which was nearly cleared before it bounced over the goal line at 102:37.
Meghan Sleezer '12 earned her seventh shutout of the season. The Thoroughbreds are at RPI on Oct. 26.
