NORTH ANDOVER, Mass. – Freshman goalie Deirdre Macrorie (Winchester, Mass./Winchester) made 10 saves and sophomore Ana Tantum (Trumbull, Conn./Trumbull) scored the match's only goal, as the Bentley women's soccer team defeated Dowling 1-0 Sunday afternoon in the conclusion of the Marriott Kickoff Classic.
The Falcons finished the season-opening Kickoff Classic 2-0 after defeating Molloy in the opener 1-0 on Friday and Dowling by the same score on Sunday.
Tantum provided the goal in the 11th minute, scoring on an unassisted shot to give the Falcons a 1-0 lead.
Macrorie meanwhile, who made five saves in Friday's win, made Tantum's goal standup. She made five saves in each half, including a save on a header by Dowling's Amber Pindulic with less than three minutes left. She also made two other saves inside the final 10 minutes of regulation to help preserve the victory.
The Falcons will look to take their record to 3-0 when they play Mercy in their home-opener on Thursday afternoon at 3:30 pm.
