Immediate Release: October 16, 2006
Bowers led the Bearcats to a pair of wins last week - a 3-0 victory at UMBC and a 1-0 triumph over Maine Sunday at West Gym field. She posted back-to-back shutouts and now has six solo shutouts this season. Along the way, Bowers broke the program's career saves record, previously held by Hall of Fame keeper Melissa Cohen (369 saves from 1986-89). Bowers currently has 377 career saves.
"Kristie's been playing great," head coach Jeff Leightman said. "Early in the season we weren't playing very well in front of her but since we've come on and made a commitment to team defending, she's been so solid. The last couple of games she's made the big saves that have made the difference. That's what you need from a keeper ... you want one or two big saves a game that will give your team a chance to win. Kristie's doing that and has actually has done it her whole career."
The Bearcats have won four of their last five games to strengthen their America East playoff position. The team concludes their regular season Thursday night at Hartford.
