WILLIAMSTOWN, Mass. — Williams Field Hockey (6-8, 4-6 NESCAC) fell to Middlebury (14-0, 10-0 NESCAC), 4-0, on Tuesday night. The Panthers finish the regular season undefeated with the win.
 
Middlebury commanded play and pressured the Eph defense throughout the first half. The Ephs were able to stave off the Middlebury attack for much of the half led by strong defense by Jaclyn Porfilio and goalie Ariana Spiliotes, who had eight saves in the half.
 
Middlebury finally broke through the Williams defense at 12:55 with a goal by Catherine Fowler off an assist by Lauren Greer. This goal opened up the game for Middlebury as Greer tallied her 100th career goal for the Panthers at 8:33 leading her team into the half ahead 2-0.
 
Middlebury continued to pressure the Ephs through the second half. The Panthers found the back of the goal again at 61:40 as Katherine Theiss scored off an assist by Lauren Greer to put Middlebury ahead 3-0. Middlebury closed the game with a goal from Catherine Fowler, assisted by Lauren Greer at 69:36.
 
Middlebury led the Ephs in shots (27-1) and penalty corners (18-3). Spiliotes had 15 saves for the Ephs, while Middlebury goalie Madeline Brooks was untested for the game.
 
The Ephs will now wait to hear whom they will face in the first round of the New England Small College Athletic Conference tournament on Saturday.
