How it Happened

The Leopards seized control right from the beginning, managing three shots in the opening 10 minutes until Amanda Weinberger put in her second goal of the season off a corner kick by Emily Richard. 

At 35:48, Wentworth upped the advantage to two, capitalizing on a shot to the upper left corner by Mykaela Scarpace. Heading into half, the Leopards held an 11-2 advantage in shots.

Boucher kept the damage to a minimum when play resumed, adding seven more saves to her total of four from the first half until the 86th minute, when Wentworth's Taylor Patti sent a long bomb from 30 yards out into the top right corner.

UMass Dartmouth saw a last-second chance to negate the shutout from freshman Jennifer Woehl (Middletown, R.I.), but the shot missed wide right.
