Kara Finnerty gave the Bowdoin College field hockey team its first win of the season with a breakaway overtime goal against Bates in a 1-0 final on Wednesday evening.

The Polar Bears climbed to 1-1 (1-1 NESCAC) after falling to Amherst in their season opener. The Bobcats (0-3, 0-2 NESCAC) controlled the game in regulation but remained winless.

Bowdoin’s most promising scoring opportunity in regulation came on a long feed to Abby Bashaw charging into the circle. Bates’ Adelae Durand came out and broke up the play before the Polar Bears could convert.

During overtime, the two teams traded pressure through the opening minutes. Elizabeth Bennewitz thwarted a 2-on-1 down the right side by intercepting the centering pass from the end line and clearing it out of Bowdoin’s circle.

Finnerty scored the game’s lone goal 8:03 into overtime. From midfield, Bennewitz fed Finnerty in Bates territory and the sophomore navigated around a defender for a breakaway. Durand dove to take away the angle and smother the shot, but Finnerty pulled the ball back and slid a shot inside the far right corner.

Durand ended the day with one save, while Maddie Ferrucci earned her first collegiate shutout behind a four -save performance.

Bates earned seven penalty corners in the contest. Bowdoin did not execute a single corner. The Bobcats outshot the Polar Bears by a 15-4 margin.
