AMHERST 2, BATES 1: German Giammattei broke a 1-1 tie with less than 10 minutes remaining as Bates (5-3, 3-3 NESCAC) saw its three-game winning streak come to an end with a loss to the Mammoths (4-3, 2-3) at Amherst, Massachusetts.

The Bobcats took an early lead when Julien Williamson’s low free kick from 30 yards in front skittered to a well-covered Ciaran Bardong in the middle of the box.

Sean Fitzgerald of Bates came free to poke the ball in, making it 1-1 less than two minutes later.
