Catamounts edge Manhattan, finish second

BURLINGTON, Vt. -- Freshman Julia Smith scored her second goal in as many games, lifting Vermont to a 1-0 win over Manhattan in the annual TD Bank Classic at Virtue Field Sunday.

UVM (2-1-0) won both games by the combined score of 3-0, finishing second in the tournament to New Hampshire (plus-4 goal differential).

Coco Speckmaier (four saves) made a sprawling save, denying Annie Doerr’s point-blank shot late in the half.

Caitie Green followed with the Catamounts' best opportunity of the opening half. Dana Buckhorn slid a pass to the near post for Green, who flicked a quick shot just wide of the left post.

UVM held a 10-6 edge in shots over Manhattan (1-3-0) at the half.

Junior substitute Colby Snyder nearly scored near the midway point of the second half, her left-fooer from inside the penalty blocked and the follow flying high.

An in-swinging corner from left back Casey Garfinkel hit the cross bar with 15 minutes to play. Savana Yurick missed high with a first-time volley from a Snyder pass eight minutes later, and another Yurick chance was stopped by Kelly DiGregorio.

Smith broke the deadlock in the 87th minute, ripping a shot from the right edge of the penalty area and finishing into the left corner.

Smith nearly added another goal, DiGregorio making a save.
