BRUNSWICK, Maine – The Tufts field hockey team clinched the top seed for the upcoming NESCAC Tournament with a 1-0 victory over Bowdoin in the regular season finale at Ryan Field on Wednesday evening.

The Polar Bears fall to 11-4 overall with a 6-4 mark in conference action. The Jumbos secured the top seed after finishing 8-2 in the NESCAC and 13-2 overall. Both teams will learn their conference tournament pairings later this evening following the conclusion of regular season play around the league.

Game Highlights
Bowdoin controlled the opening minutes of play, tallying a pair of penalty corners and four shots before the Jumbos moved the ball to the far end for a bid of their own.
Elizabeth Bennewitz lined up a hard drive from the top of the circle on a penalty corner and watched her shot deflect off the left post. The Polar Bears later peppered Emily Polinksi with three quick shots that Polinski denied with a dive.
The Jumbos broke through 15 minutes into the second half. Marguerite Salamone carried the ball to the endline and worked her way towards the left post. Salamone found a gap as Clara Belitz dove to cut off the shot, giving the visitors a 1-0 advantage.
Bowdoin extended the game, earning four consecutive penalty corners after time expired. The Polar Bears appeared to score on their fourth attempt as a blast from the top rattled into the cage, but the goal was called back and the Jumbos came away with the victory.
Bowdoin outshot the visitors by a 20-5 margin and held a 20-3 edge in corners. Belitz ended the day with three saves. Polinski made six stops for the Jumbos.
