December 3rd, Waltham, MA, 2018; GPS would like to congratulate Liz Webber and the Williams College Ephs for their National Championship win this past Saturday.
Webber came up against fellow GPS alumni, and division rival, Rose Evans and the Middlebury Panthers beating them 3-2 in PKs following 2OT.
The NCAA Division 3 Women’s Soccer National Championship game was the final entry in the Williams College Ephs and Middlebury Panthers trilogy.
The NESCAC rivals split the results across the two previous games they played this campaign.
In mid-October, the Ephs ended the Panthers unbeaten season with a 1-0 win at home.
Coincidentally, the Panthers would repay the favor in the NESCAC tournament when the two met once again at the Eph’s home stadium.
This second installment would see the Panthers reverse the 1-0 scoreline in their favor, ending the Eph’s undefeated season and snatching the conference title from them.
The title game proved to be equally as defensive and hard fought. The Ephs found the break through 28 minutes into the match.
The Panthers got on the scoreboard only ten minutes later via an own goal courtesy of a deflected clearance.
The scoreline would stay 1-1 through the end of regulation. Two periods of overtime were not enough for either team to find the breakthrough however sending the game to PKs.
Williams would go on to win the PK shootout 3-2 to claim their 2nd straight title and 3rd in four years.
Both Webber and Evans started for their respective teams in defense and put in hard shifts. Webber would play 90 min in the match while Evans was on the pitch for 100 min.
