Eight seconds left. Tufts up by one against the best team in the nation with a final free position opportunity for Middlebury’s Hope Shue versus senior Molly Laliberty in goal.

The Brown and Blue went into the home stretch with big wins over Bates and Wesleyan.

To regain their momentum, the Jumbos need to string together a solid series of wins before the regular season ends in late April.

First-year attacker Margie Carden and junior attacker and midfielder Caroline Walter led the Jumbos in scoring with each player netting a hat trick. Senior goalie Molly Laliberty commented on what went right for Tufts.
