SOMERVILLE – Senior Jess Capone slated two goals in four minutes as Tufts Women's Soccer defeated Endicott College 4-0 on Tuesday afternoon at Kraft Field.

Senior Jess Capone recorded a two-goal game for Tufts

The Jumbos received their fifth win to put the team at 5-3-3 overall. The Gulls tally their second loss this season to set their record at 9-2-2.

For the only goal in the first half, Tufts' Mariah Harvey-Brown passed into the box where a defender hit it to junior Margaret Zahrah. Her shot tipped off Gulls goalkeeper Caroline Armbruster's hands into the top left corner of the goal in the 31st minute.

A close attempt by Tufts followed off a high pass by senior co-captain Robin Estus into the box. Armbruster dove in front of Jumbos Capone and junior Chandler Quintin before they could attempt shots.

Into the second half, an Endicott defender's pass out of the box was intercepted by Harvey-Brown who then kicked a goal into the right side of the net in the 62nd minute of regulation to increase the Jumbo lead to 2-0.

Off a Robin Estus free kick that went on goal but was bobbled by the Endicott keeper, Capone rocketed a shot into the left-hand corner of the goal to give Tufts a 3-0 advantage in the 73rd minute.

Just a quick four minutes later, the same two players did it again for Tufts. Estus passed from midfield over a defender to Capone for a one-on-one with Armbruster and Capone lobbed a shot over Armbruster's head into the back of the net.

The Jumbos dominated the shots total with 32 in the game while the Gulls only had three.

Sophomore goalkeeper Emily Bowers recorded a win with only one save. Armbruster saved 15 shots while recording her second loss of the season.

The Jumbos travel down to Connecticut for two match-ups against NESCAC teams this weekend. They play Connecticut College on Saturday at 11:30 a.m. and Trinity College on Sunday for a 1 p.m. start. The Gulls visits CCC rival Western New England on Saturday for a 11 a.m. game.
