The Brandeis Judges wrapped their regular season home finale forcing a 0-0 draw against visiting Carnegie Mellon. Tartan’s goal keeper Anya Rosen knocked aside seven shots in 110 minutes of action, including two shots on goal each from Tiffany Pacheco ’12 and Izabella Miranda ’12. Jaclyn Weinstein ’12 made her second straight start in net in place of regular netminder Hillary Rosezweig ’10 and acquitted herself well with six saves in ninety minutes of action before having to leave the match following a collision. Fellow rookie Elyse Phillips ’12 had two saves in the double overtime to preserve the tie.

Brandeis wraps up their season on the road at New York University. The Violets are currently 2-4 in UAA play have recently dropped their last two matches to Carnegie Mellon and Emory. Players to watch for from NYU are the attacking duo of Sarah Pillemer and Filiz Kipcakli, both lead the team with 19 points and have only one goal between them, fizzling out those forwards will be key to the Judges earning another double digit win total on the season.

The Judges will lean back on their defense which has largely been the strength of the team as they lead the UAA with nine shut outs this year. A strong game by Tiffany Pacheco ’12 would greatly help the cause as the team’s leader in goals and points hasn’t touched the scorer’s sheet since notching a goal and an assist in a 5-1 against Smith back in September.

A solid year for the Denise Dallamora’s squad and hopefully taking one on the road will help make that solid year slightly sweeter to the taste as 2008 draws to a close and a new year dawns ever closer.
