NEW LONDON, Conn.--Sophomore Olivia Farrell (New York, N.Y.) scored the goal that proved to be the difference with 15:05 remaining in regulation as Connecticut College completed a two-game NESCAC sweep with a 3-1 victory against intra-state rival Wesleyan University
The Camels extend their unbeaten streak to six games, improving to 8-5-2 with a 5-4-1 record in the NESCAC. The Cardinals drop their 12th straight game and are 2-16 with a 1-9 mark in the NESCAC.
Courtney Dumont (Lewiston, Maine) recorded a goal and an assist. Junior forward Ariel DiPasquale (Whitestone, N.Y.) potted her eighth goal of the season for the winning side.
Junior defenders Molly Murphy (Woodstock, Conn.) and Andrea McRae (Stittsville, Ontario) chipped in with assists for the hosts in the victory.

Junior net-minder Ashleigh Corvi (Barrington, R.I.) stopped 32 shots in the loss for the Cardinals and made 62 saves in the two-game set.

Junior Caroline Corbett (Norwood, Mass.) made a cross-crease pass to Farrell from her backhand and the sophomore forward finished with her fourth goal of the season.
Dumont added some insurance with 7:12 to go. The sophomore sharp-shooter broke free in a one-on-one situation and went top shelf to beat Corvi at the near post.
