Women’s Soccer Victories over JWU & Clark

The Brandeis Women’s soccer team had an efficient week, advancing to 3-2 on the season with a win at home and a win on the road. The #21 ranked Judges, according to the United Soccer Coaches national poll, defeated Johnson and Wales University on Gordon Field 3-1 and Clark University 2-1. All three of the Judges’ goals were unanswered against JWU, as the Brandeis women’s soccer team overcame an early deficit in the 30th minute.

In the 37th minute, junior midfielder Charlotte TeKrony ’24 played a long ball to senior All-American Juliette Carreiro ’22 who successfully chipped over JWU’s keeper to tie the game up before halftime. In the second half, graduate student Makenna Hunt (GRAD) assisted junior forward Sydney Lenhart ’24 inside the box. Lenhart fired the ball into the goal, gaining a 2-1 advantage for her squad. The insurance goal in the 58th minute was scored by graduate student Bailey Cullen (GRAD), who converted Carreiro’s cross to make it 3-1. 

The Judges outshot their opponent 14-10, including 11 shots on goal compared to JWU Wildcats seven. Additionally, sophomore keeper Hanna Bassan ’25 executed six saves for her second win of the 2022-23 season. Carreiro continued to make history in the Judges’ defeat of the Wildcat’s as she had her first three-point game of the season and the seventh of her career, while also moving into 17th place on the Brandeis career points list; Carreiro currently has 53 points and 17 assists, placing her sixth all-time on the career assist list, too. Sydney Lenhart has emerged for the Judges, scoring both game-winning goals for the Judges and three total for her career. 

Despite a non-conference cancellation because of inclement weather, the Judges sustained their momentum and successfully defeated the Clark University Cougars 2-1. Akin to JWU, Clark established an early one-goal lead in the 9th minute over the visiting Judges. Senior Morgan Clark ’23 answered in the 28th minute, perfectly heading the ball into the net off a timely pass from sophomore back Rachel Walter ’25. With just 55 seconds remaining in the first half, Madison Sansone ’26 delivered Carreiro a perfect cross at the far post which she placed beautifully in the wide-open net. The Judges dominated the second half, allowing the Cougars just one shot, while individually, Walter and Sansone earned their first collegiate points.

In Brandeis University’s victory over Clark, the Judges outshot their opponent 15-5, including 7-3 in shots on goal. Defensively, Bassan won her second consecutive game, third of the season, totaling two saves. Clark scored her first goal of the season and the third of her career, while Carreiro captured the team lead scoring her third goal of the season. Carreiro’s goal was her first game-winner of the season and the eighth of her career, tying for 13th place in school history. That’s not all, though, as Carreiro’s goal was the 19th of her career, moving her into 19th place. With 55 points, Carreiro now ranks 17th all-time on her team’s career points list.

The Judges look to gain another victory on Gordon Field against the visiting Emerson College on Saturday, Sept. 17 at 1 p.m.
