The St. Thomas women's soccer team continued its winning ways with a 1-0 win over Hamline on Saturday afternoon at South Field. The No. 14-ranked Tommies move to 8-0-1 overall and 3-0-1 in MIAC play while the Pipers fall to 5-4-1 overall and 1-3-1 in conference play.

The two teams played a scoreless first half with St. Thomas holding a 4-1 advantage in shots on goal.

The Tommies were able to get on the board in the second half with a goal by Mallory DeBoom in the 67th minute. Sara Osborne notched a pass to DeBoom, who was able to dribble through Hamline defenders to create a shooting opportunity from the middle of the box. DeBoom did not let the opportunity go to waste and found the upper left corner of the net for her third goal of the season.

One goal proved to be all St. Thomas needed as 1-0 held up as the final score and was the seventh shutout of the year for the Tommies. In nine matches this season, St. Thomas has given up just two goals.

Tarynn Theilig made three saves in the win to record her 18th career shutout.

St. Thomas finished the game with an 11-3 edge in shots on goal.

The Tommies are back in action on Wednesday afternoon at 4 p.m. as they host St. Olaf at South Field.
