Bedford 1, Mount Everett 0

SHEFFIELD — They say one is the loneliest number, but it is all Nyra Perez needed to be the fan-favorite on Saturday. Bedford and Mount Everett (0-3-1) found themselves in a defensive battle for most of the afternoon, but in the 47th minute, Perez scored on a corner kick from Sydney Cox for the game's lone goal.

"Bedford possessed most of the game, but we had our chances just couldn't seem to find the back of the net," Mount Everett coach Josh King wrote in an email. "Bedford was well-coached and I'm proud of the effort we have been putting forth. Not quite where we want to be, but every day these kids are getting better and our overall effort continues to improve."

Olivia Harrington had two saves in net for Bedford while Emma Goewey stopped 13 balls for the Eagles.

Mount Everett is off until Thursday, when they play Taconic at BCC.

Wesleyan 2, Williams women's soccer 1

MIDDLETOWN, Conn. — The No. 1 women's soccer team in Division III went on the road for the first time on Saturday. Unfortunately for coach Michelyne Pinard and the Williams Ephs, they left Connecticut with a loss.

Host Wesleyan scored twice in a nine-minute span of the first half, in a 2-1 win over Williams. The Ephs scored with just over four minutes to play in the contest, but could not get the equalizer.

Emily Ribatt converted a penalty kick at 14:16, and the Cardinals (3-1) made it 2-0 on Dani Milovanov's goal in the 24th minute.

Williams put lots of pressure on the Wesleyan goal, but keeper Sarah Hammond held the Ephs off until Victoria Laino scored in the 86th minute.

The loss ended an eight-match unbeaten streak for Williams, one that dated back to the start of last year's NCAA Division III tournament. It is also the third loss for Williams in its last 50 matches.

Williams men's soccer 2, Wesleyan 1

MIDDLETOWN, Conn. — Sometimes 90 minutes isn't enough. They needed overtime, but the Ephs picked up their first win of the season with a 2-1 victory over Wesleyan. Williams (1-2-1) struck first in the 34th minute as Andrew Mathew set up Demian Gass for his first goal of the season, giving the Ephs the first-half advantage.

However, it didn't last long. Alec Haas found the back of the net not two minutes later to put Wesleyan (1-1-1) on the board. For the rest of regular time, the story was the 'keepers. Michael Davis stopped four of five attempts in goal in 91 minutes for the Ephs and Liam Devanny stopped seven of eight shots Cardinals, but that changed once the clock hit 91:30. After a Bobby Fabricant shot hit the crossbar, Will Felitto knocked the ball in to give Williams the win.

The Ephs will look to keep the magic going today as they travel to Babson for a 2 p.m. match.

SPRINGFIELD — The Trailblazers dropped their fourth-straight to start the 2019 season with a 4-0 loss to Western New England.
