UMFK women win national soccer title

UMFK release:

Game Recap
Charleston, WV—The University of Maine Fort Kent Women’s Soccer Team has successfully defended their USCAA National Championship by defeating 3rd seed and arch rival, Daemen College. The two teams have developed quite the rivalry over the past few seasons, meeting now in each of the last three USCAA Championships. This the fourth championship in the last five seasons for the Bengals who have officially made their mark in USCAA history. UMFK is the first team to win four national titles in women’s soccer.

The first half was a back and forth battle with both teams defense at full strength. Neither team really had any great chances as the ball was kept in the middle third of the field. UMFK’s best chance came in the 35th minute after a Brianna Mills corner kick came to USCAA National Player of the Year Katherine Ferland who headed the ball down but was saved by Daemen keeper Kathryn Haessner. Each team had just two shots on goal in the first half.

In the second half, UMFK controlled play for almost the entire half and were finally able to break through in the 73rd minute after Brianna Mills connected on a free kick from about 38 yards out. It was by far the deepest free kick of the season as Mills rocketed just under the post past the Daemen keeper. UMFK continued to dominate play and the Wildcats could not put more pressure on the Bengal defense. It was then Ferland who put the game away as Marie-Laurence Montagne took advantage of a missed clearance and passed the ball to Ferland who put the ball on her left foot and snuck it past the diving keeper. UMFK keeper Michelle Delgadillo saved her best performances of the season in the tournament as she pitched a shutout in all three matches and ends the season with six consecutive shutouts.

The lone senior for the Bengals, Ariane Lebarge-Pelletier leaves UMFK as the winningest player in soccer history with three National Championships in four seasons. Next year’s class will have chance to match that as they look to go back to back to back. Coach Lucas Levesque has now collected his fourth National Championship.

UMaine-Fort Kent finds winning combination

UMaine-Fort Kent finds winning combination
Luring talent from California, Canada and Jamaica, this small regional school in far-northern Maine has boosted enrollment by finding athletes who want a cost-effective way to excel in class and in sports alike.

UMFK won its fourth national women’s soccer title in five years this month. At the same time, the men’s soccer team reached the national title game. The women’s volleyball team just missed out on reaching the national tournament. UMFK has become a national power in small-college athletics, as well as a magnet for student-athletes from across the country and around the globe. Only 11 of its 82 student-athletes are from Maine. Forty-one come from other countries, including 17 from Canada and eight from Jamaica. Twenty-four are Californians. UMFK has used an aggressive strategy to land prime athletes and out-of-state students, providing success and boosting its enrollment. “Everyone wins,” said Wilson Hess, the school’s president...
