Coverage Of @UMassWSoccer Win Over La Salle In @Atlantic10 Opener

It was a thrilling finish on Thursday afternoon at Rudd Field as Julia Weithofer's Golden Goal with 46 seconds left in the second overtime won the UMass women's soccer team its fourth straight match and its Atlantic 10 opener against La Salle. Along with Weithofer's goal, the game was highlighted by a fourth straight clean sheet for Cassidy Babin and the defense. Senior forward Jackie Bruno also made an unexpected return to the pitch after being cleared following a lengthy battle with Lyme disease that was originally thought to be season ending for the forward.

Congratulations to the four members of the UMass women's soccer program, Megan Burke, Julia Weithofer, Georgia Gibson and Madison Smith, who have helped the New England Mutiny of the WPSL clinch the top spot in the Power 5 Division and finish the regular season with a record of 7-1.

MassLive had coverage of the Mutiny's 2-0 weekend and the success of their season thus far. Weithofer, a East Longmeadow, Mass., native, was interviewed for the piece.
