HARTFORD, Conn. — Two first-half goals by senior forward Kim Alexander gave the Bates College women’s soccer team the scoring needed to win 2-1 at Trinity College in a NESCAC contest on Sunday afternoon.

Trinity junior Katherine O’Brien (Lynnfield, Mass.) scored on a free kick from just outside the penalty area in the 72nd minute of the game, but the Bobcats (3-1, 1-1 NESCAC) held on for the win, outshooting the Bantams (0-4, 0-3) by an 11-6 margin.
Bates sophomore Mia Lidofsky (Providence, R.I.) made four saves in goal, while Trinity counterpart Tara Finucane (Branford, Conn.) recorded 10 saves.
