NORTHAMPTION, Mass. – Nora Mertz (Jr./Evanston, Ill./Evanston) and Hannah Hemmerly (Sr./Brooklyn, N.Y./Brooklyn Friends) found the back of the net as the Carleton College women’s soccer team bested Smith College, 2-0, on Saturday afternoon.

In the 32nd minute, Annika Martensson (Sr./Wauwatosa, Wis./Divine Savior Holy Angels) took a free kick from 25 yards out. She nearly notched her second goal in as many days, striking the crossbar. The ball ricocheted to the top of the six-yard box, and Mertz headed the ball home to give the Knights (1-0-1) the lead. It was the junior’s 15th career goal.

The insurance goal came in the 74th minute. Julia Kenney (Jr./Evanston, Ill./Evanston) delivered a corner kick to the far side of the box. Hemmerly took a settling touch and blasted a left-footed strike into the top of the net for her first career goal.

Anna Roethler (So./St Louis Park, Minn./St Louis Park) registered four saves in posting her fifth career shutout.

Carleton next travels to Grinnell College for a 4:30 p.m. affair on Thursday, Sept. 6.
