NORTH ADAMS -- Danielle Heinsohn made seven saves to record her sixth shutout of the season and propel the MCLA women's soccer team to its seventh victory.
The Trailblazers grabbed a 2-0 win over Mount Holyoke as they continued to build momentum for a playoff run. MCLA will conclude the regular season on Saturday before starting the MASCAC playoffs next week.
"I was pleased with how we played in the first half, and even the second half," coach Deb Raber said. "The girls just dug deep and played a gritty second half. One of the things we've always prided ourselves on is how hard we work, we might not be the most talented group, but we definitely take pride in working very hard."
MCLA got the scoring started early when Janelle Stannard got her head on a corner kick from Lindsay Borbolla in the sixth minute for a 1-0 lead.
The Trailblazers closed out the scoring in the 39th minute when Jen Ferrari and Keisha Devoe broke in on a two-on-one. Ferrari dragged the goalkeeper and the defender in her direction before tapping the ball to a wide-open Devoe who had the entire net to shoot at.
COBLESKILL, N.Y. -- SUNY Cobleskill grabbed momentum with a close victory in the second set and never looked back on its way to beating MCLA, 3-1.
MCLA won the first set 25-21, but dropped the next three 24-26, 14-25, 22-25 to lose the match.
Kelley Bryant led the team in digs with 20.
The Trailblazers will end the regular season on Saturday and begin the MASCAC playoffs on Wednesday, Oct. 31 at Westfield State.
