WATERVILLE, Maine – The Green Mountain College women's soccer team was shutout Thomas College, 4-0, in a North Atlantic Conference (NAC) matchup on Sunday afternoon at Smith Field.

Thomas added their second of the game as Julia Smith sent a crossing pass to Makenzie Carlow in the box as she one-touched the ball in for a 2-0 lead.  Just before the break, Sam Jordan put the Terriers up by three with her first career goal as she tapped in a rebound shot from Dufour.

Woodward tallied the Terriers' fourth goal as she scooped up a loose ball in front after a crossing pass from Nikki Bradstreet in the 65th minute to finish the scoring at 4-0.
