TERRE HAUTE, IND. -- Rose-Hulman Institute of
Technology junior Amanda Kingman (Plano,
Texas/Senior) scored seven minutes into overtime to help
the women's soccer upset Heartland Conference leader Earlham
College on Wednesday night.
Kingman booted home her second goal of the season, courtesy of a
pass from freshman Katie DeMoss
(Martinsville/Roncalli), for the lone score in
Rose-Hulman's 1-0 victory.
The Fightin' Engineers also handed HCAC leader Earlham their
first loss of the conference season in the match.
Earlham outshot Rose-Hulman 15-7 in the match, but freshman
Lucinda Combs (Danville, Ky./Boyle County)
recorded her school record eighth shutout of the season with five
saves to lead the defensive effort.
Joy Doucette led Earlham with five shots, and sophomore Nicky
Wheeler (Avon) joined Kingman with two shots for Rose-Hulman.

HCAC play with the victory. Rose-Hulman travels to Manchester
with a chance to earn the fourth seed for next week's HCAC
Tournament with a win over the Spartans on Saturday. Earlham
