Terriers Stop UMF, 3-1; Clinch NAC Tourney Berth

FARMINGTON, ME --- The Thomas College men's soccer team scored three second-half goals en route to a 3-1 North Atlantic Conference win over the University of Maine at Farmington.

UMF opened the scoring in the 20th minute as Uriah Forest-Bulley beat Terriers goalkeeper Joakim Sternas with a header off a flip throw-in from Luke Sterling.

The Beavers held the lead into halftime but the Terriers wasted little time getting on the board in the second half. DJ Nicholas netted the equalizer just 20 seconds after the restart off an assist from Willie Clemons.

Yusuf Yama nearly gave UMF the lead back in the 54th minute but Sternas was able to make a layout save to keep the score tied. Yama was shown a red card during a sequence a short time later, forcing the Beavers to play a man down the rest of the way.

In the 77th minute, Clemons scored off a rebound to give Thomas a 2-1 lead.

Josh Emard gave the Terriers some insurance in the final minute, netting his eighth goal of the season off a breakaway down the right side with 18.2 seconds to play.

Thomas outshot UMF, 20-10, overall and held a 15-6 advantage in shots on goal and a 6-1 edge in corner kicks. Sternas went the distance in goal for the Terriers, recording five saves.

The win is the seventh in eight outings for Thomas (9-4, 5-1 NAC) and pulls the Terriers into a tie with Castleton for second place in the NAC standings, just one game back of league-leader Colby-Sawyer heading into Saturday's Family Weekend showdown with Husson (7-3-1, 4-1 NAC). The victory also allowed Thomas to clinch a spot in the upcoming NAC Tournament.

Three Late Goals Push Men's Soccer Past Husson

WATERVILLE, ME --- Down 2-0 with 10 minutes to play, the Thomas College men's soccer team scored three times in a five-minute span to post a 3-2, come-from-behind Homecoming/Family Weekend victory over Husson University Saturday at Smith Field.

Freshman Josh Emard scored the game-winner for Thomas (10-4, 6-1 North Atlantic Conference) with 2:14 to play off an assist from Tre Ming.

Husson (7-4-1, 4-2 NAC) opened the scoring in the 28th minute on a goal by Phil Frost. After receiving a pass from Josh Bean inside the 18, Stephen Berenyi found the foot of Frost, who drove a shot past Thomas goalkeeper Joakim Sternas for the 1-0 lead.

The Terriers had a pair of chances late in the first half off of free kicks, the first was wide left by Kyle Fletcher, while the second, off the foot of Ming, slammed hard into the crossbar.

The Eagles netted their second of the game six minutes into the second half. Frost scored his second on a header off a throw-in by Bean.

Facing a two-goal deficit, Thomas picked up the tempo offensively. The emotional intensity of the match also picked up, eventually leading to cautions to both Ming and Frost in the 76th minute.

The Terriers finally broke through in the 84th minute as Adam LaBrie beat a diving Gross to his left side. Ming was credited with the assist. LaBrie added a second goal three minutes later, knotting the score at 2-2 off an assist from London Steede-Jackson.

Just 54 seconds passed between the restart and LaBrie's second goal and Emard's game-winner.

Thomas finished with a 19-7 edge in shots and a 6-2 advantage in corner kicks. LaBrie led all players with five shots, while DJ Nicholas added four for the Terriers. Frost and Cam Libbey had two shots each for Husson.

The Terriers return to the pitch Tuesday, October 20, when they venture to Castine, Maine, to face Maine Maritime Academy (3-9-1, 2-3-1 NAC). Kickoff is slated for 7:30 p.m.

Steede-Jackson Goal Pushes Thomas Past Maine Maritime, 1-0

CASTINE, ME --- Junior midfielder London Steede-Jackson (Hamilton Parish, Bermuda / CedarBridge Academy) scored off a free kick in the 79th minute to provide the only goal in Thomas College's 1-0 men's soccer victory at Maine Maritime Academy on Tuesday.

After a scoreless first half, the Mariners had an opportunity to break through in the 54th minute when they were awarded a penalty kick after Thomas committed a foul in the box. Brian Soucy was unable to convert, however, as Terrier goalkeeper Joakim Sternas (Stockholm, Sweden / Bromma Gymnasium) made a diving stop to his left to knock away the try.

Thomas' best chance came three minutes later but Lukas Bohman's (Gnesta, Sweden / Tessin) shot caught the goal post and bounced back into play. The Terriers continued with the offensive pressure as the half progressed, eventually forcing the foul that set up Steede-Jackson's free kick.

Thomas was without the services of senior Tre Ming in the contest. Ming served a one-game suspension due to yellow card accumulation.

The Terriers outshot the Mariners, 14-7, and had three corner kicks to the Mariners' two. Sternas was credited with two saves while Maine Maritime keeper Joshua Reeks made one.

Steede-Jackson led all players with four shots.

The win pushed Thomas (11-4, 7-1 NAC) into a tie with Colby-Sawyer (9-6, 7-1 NAC) for the league lead headed into Saturday's Senior Day contest with Johnson State. Kickoff is scheduled for 3:30 p.m. The Chargers lost to Castleton, 2-0, on Tuesday night. The Spartans (11-5-1, 6-1 NAC) are one-half game back with two games scheduled for this weekend.

Ming Tallies Six Points for Thomas Men's Soccer in 5-0 Senior Day Win

WATERVILLE, ME --- Senior midfielder Tre Ming (Devonshire, Bermuda / South Kent [Conn.]) scored a goal and four assists as the Thomas College men's soccer team closed out its regular season with a 5-0 Senior Day victory over Johnson State College on Saturday at Smith Field.

Ming got Thomas on the board in the 20th minute by knocking in a cross from freshman Adam LaBrie (Yarmouth, Maine / Yarmouth) for his fifth goal of the season.

DJ Nicholas (fr., Portland, Maine / North Yarmouth Academy) netted the first of his two goals in the 26th minute, taking a service from Ming and placing a shot past Johnson State goalkeeper Berkan Agul to extend the lead to 2-0.

The Terriers added another tally just before halftime as junior London Steede-Jackson (Hamilton Parish, Bermuda / Cedar Bridge Academy) took another service from Ming and found the back of the net with 47 seconds left in the opening frame.

Thomas maintained its pressure coming out of halftime as Nicholas scored his second goal just three minutes into the second half. A goal in the 62nd minute by freshman Josh Emard (Lebanon, Maine / Noble) completed the scoring.

Junior goalkeeper Joakim Sternas (Stockholm, Sweden / Bromma Gymnasium) and freshmen Jonathan Dutka (Durham, N.H. / Oyster River) and Alex Berard (Winslow, Maine / Winslow) combined on the shutout. Sternas played the opening half, while Dutka started the second half and Berard entered with 20 minutes to play. Of the three, Dutka was the only one credited with a save.

For Johnson State, Berkan Agul made two saves on five shots on goal in the first half. Alex Pakatar had four saves in the second half.

The Badgers had five shots overall with one by Kahambwe Felekeni finding the frame. The Terriers were credited with 23 shots, including 11 on goal. Nicholas led Thomas with five shots and three on goal, while Emard, Ming and LaBrie had four shots each. Thomas also held a 7-1 advantage in corner kicks.

Prior to the contest, the team's three seniors – Ming and defenders Chris Godfrey (South Hampton, Bermuda / Berkeley Institute) and Lukas Bohman (Gnesta, Sweden / Tessin) – were recognized for their contributions to the program.

The Terriers are assured of a top-three seed in the upcoming NAC Tournament. Seeding will be finalized following the conclusion of conference play on Sunday which sees Castleton hosting Maine Maritime and Green Mountain hosting Husson. Castleton is 6-1 in NAC play and needs a win to forge a three-way tie with the Terriers and Colby-Sawyer atop the final league standings.

LaBrie OT Goal Sends Terriers to NAC Championship Game

WATERVILLE, ME --- Top-seeded Thomas College held off a stiff challenge from No. 5-seed New England College, needing an overtime goal by freshman forward Adam LaBrie (Yarmouth, ME / Yarmouth) to win 2-1 on Wednesday and advance to the championship game of the North Atlantic Conference Men's Soccer Tournament.

The Terriers (13-4) had a number of chances in the opening couple of minutes as London Steede-Jackson hit the post with a shot. The ricochet was served back in and then headed high by LaBrie.

Thomas missed another opportunity in the 22nd minute as a shot by senior midfielder Tre Ming (Devonshire, Bermuda / South Kent [CT]) from outside the 18 skimmed off the crossbar.

The Pilgrims (12-8-1) were able to keep the Terriers off the board in the first half despite being outshot 8-1 due to the leg of goalkeeper Tenzin Khenrab. Khenrab's long punts allowed NEC to fare well, if not hold the edge, in the battle for field position.

Thomas broke open the scoring the 66th minute as sophomore midfielder Willie Clemons (Paget, Bermuda / Warwick Academy) put away a shot that spun off the side of Josh Emard's foot. Clemons nearly made it 2-0 a minute later, but his shot sailed high.

NEC got the equalizer in the 71st minute in the form of a successful penalty kick by Ronsard Masamba. The Pilgrims also got a spark from back-up keeper Dylan Mix. After entering the game in the 78th minute following an injury to Khenrab, Mix made three saves in the last few minutes as Thomas continued to apply pressure offensively.

In the overtime period, physical play on the part of both teams made an already intense atmosphere electric. Clemons nearly ended it after taking a service from Ming on the right side of the goal, but missed wide left. Kept in play, the Terriers cycled the ball back around to Ming. LaBrie, running nearly the same line as Clemons just had, took the long cross from Ming and headed it in to end the game.

Khenrab finished with four saves for NEC before yielding to Mix. Joakim Sternas had six saves in the win for the Terriers.

Thomas outshot NEC, 24-9, but the Pilgrims had the game's only two corner kicks. Clemons finished with six shots, two on goal, while LaBrie added five. Masamba led NEC with three shots.

The Terriers will host No. 2 seed Castleton in the NAC Championship game on Saturday at Smith Field at 1 p.m. Thomas defeated the Spartans, 3-0, on October 11 in Waterville.

Thomas Wins NAC Men's Soccer Title in PKs over Castleton

WATERVILLE, ME --- Thomas College captured its fourth North Atlantic Conference (NAC) Men's Soccer Championship in six years Saturday after winning a penalty-kick shootout, 5-4, over Castleton at Smith Field.

The teams were deadlocked at 2-2 after 110 minutes of play and were in the seventh round of shots from the mark when London Steede-Jackson beat NAC Defensive Player of the Year Amir Pasic for the deciding goal.

Shooting first, Castleton took a 3-2 advantage into the fifth round of PKs, needing only to convert against Thomas substitute keeper Jonathan Dutka to capture the title but a shot by Solo Felekeni missed the mark. Lukas Bohman then converted to extend the match to extra shots. After both teams had successful attempts in the sixth round, Sawyer Shane took to the mark for the Spartans. Dutka smothered the shot to set Steede-Jackson up for the winning kick.

Castleton opened up the scoring in the 20th minute as Felekini headed in a service from midfield by Anthony Kirk. Thomas nearly knotted the score in the 24th but Pasic made a diving save on a header by DJ Nicholas.

Nicholas made good on a chance in the 33rd minute, though, putting away a loose ball in the box off a service from Tre Ming to knot the score at 1-1.

Thomas nearly grabbed the lead in the 62nd minute as a Nicholas challenge brought Pasic off the goal line. The scoring attempt was thwarted, though, as Eric Cross was in perfect position to make the defensive save.

The Terriers were given an opening in the 71st minute after London Steede-Jackson was fouled in the box. Tre Ming converted the ensuing penalty kick to give Thomas a 2-1 advantage.

The Spartans knotted the match with 2:39 to play as Cameron Rossi-Crete placed a shot past a diving Joakim Sternas. Sternas, who was injured on the play, remained in the game through the end of regulation but yielded to Dutka to start overtime.

The Terriers had a flurry of offensive chances late, but Pasic held his ground, at one point making a sliding save on a point-blank shot by Ming with 1:43 to play.

Thomas controlled possession for most of the first overtime, hoping to use the sun to their advantage. Again, Pasic stood firm. With the waning daylight an obvious factor, he made a pair of saves to help send the game into a second extra session.

With the sun now an advantage, Castleton pressured Thomas in the second overtime only to see a couple of shots blocked by the Terrier defense. Thomas was not without its opportunities, though, as headers by Nicholas and Kyle Fletcher were swallowed up by Pasic, as was a shot by Ming in the closing seconds.

Thomas finished the match with a 27-11 advantage in saves and a 7-0 edge in corner kicks with Nicholas and Clemons credited with six shots apiece. Felekini has four shots to lead Castleton, while Steven Koenemann and Rossi-Crete had two each. Pasic made nine saves in total for the Spartans.

By virtue of winning the North Atlantic Conference title, Thomas (13-4-1) advances to the 2015 NCAA Division III Men's Soccer Championship as the NAC's automatic qualifier. The Terriers will learn of their tournament draw on Monday afternoon during NCAA Selection Show, to be shown on NCAA.com.

At the conclusion of the championship tournament, the Conference also announced its all-tournament team. Thomas' Tre Ming was named the Tournament MVP after scoring a goal and an assist in final and adding an assist in Thomas' 2-1 overtime semifinal win over New England College.

Thomas College prepares for return to NCAA soccer tournament
Mix of international and Maine players has Terriers confident they can earn program's first NCAA win.

WATERVILLE — The Thomas College Terriers were hoping to break away from what’s lately become the routine of their NCAA Division III Soccer Tournament appearances by either playing close to home or on turf.

The NCAA granted both wishes by sending them to Boston for a first-round match with host Brandeis.

“It is big,” Thomas coach Chris Parsons said. “We really wanted to be able to play on turf and we really wanted to not have to travel a big distance.”

Thomas Men's Soccer Sidelined by Brandeis With Late Goal

WALTHAM, MA --- The Thomas College men's soccer team was sidelined by Brandeis University, 2-1, in an NCAA Division III Men's Soccer Championship first-round match on Saturday.

Brandeis midfieldler Josh Ocel scored the game-winning goal with 42 seconds to play, taking a free kick off the foot of Conor Lanahan and launching a rocket shot into the right side past a diving Joakim Sternas (Stockholm, Sweden).

Thomas (13-5-1) gained the early advantage with a goal in the 14th minute as freshman DJ Nicholas (Portland, Maine) sent forward a through ball on a counter-attack that was pegged home by sophomore midfielder Willie Clemons (Paget, Bermuda). It was Clemons' ninth goal of the season.

The Judges (17-2-1) answered in the 24th minute as Josh Handler made a cross from the right sideline to sophomore Patrick Flahive, who headed it past a charging Sternas for his third goal of the year.

Statistically, Brandeis controlled the game in the first half, outshooting Thomas, 16-2, and taking eight of the nine corner kicks in the half. Clemons was shown a red card in the 32nd minute, forcing the Terriers to play a man down for the duration of the match. Thomas hung with the third-ranked Judges, however, behind the strong play of Sternas, who made seven of his 10 saves after Thomas was rendered shorthanded.

Brandeis finished the game with a 33-5 edge in shots, including a 12-0 advantage in shots on goal. The Judges also had a 15-3 advantage in corner kicks.

The loss concludes the stellar careers of midfielder Tre Ming (Devonshire, Bermuda) and defenders Lukas Bohman (Gnesta, Sweden) and Chris Godfrey (South Hampton, Bermuda).
