"I chose Husson because of the excellent nursing program as well as a field hockey program that will further enhance my skills and knowledge of the game," Douglas commented.

"We are pleased to have Heather join our program and are looking forward to see what she will contribute," Hoeppner said.

Moir is from Bangor and attended Bangor High School and led the team to the state playoffs in back to back years. In 2015, she was a Class A second team pick and PVC All-Academic Team choice. Moir totaled 20 goals in four seasons and graduated as a honor student.

"We are excited to be able to help Austyn be the best she can be and achieve her goals both on the field and in the classroom," Hoeppner said.

Rylie Blanchet is a midfielder from Skowhegan, Maine, that attended Skowhegan High School. A senior captain, she was named to the 2014 National Field Hockey Coaches Association All-Region Team and a Miss Maine Field Hockey Nominee.

FH: Husson falls at Gordon, 2-1

WENHAM, Mass. — Sophomore Emily Allcroft (Haydenville, Mass.) scored twice for Gordon in the second half after a defensive stalemate in the first half but the Fighting Scots were able to hold off a late rally from Husson to win 2-1 in a second hallf that saw a back-and-forth game.

Gordon (1-1) had its fair share of opportunities in the first half by forcing Husson goalkeeper Kaitlin Dolloff (Richmond, R.I.) into six saves. Husson (0-2) showed its offensive as well with six penalty corners earned in the first half alone—five more than the Scots. However, Shannon Hicks (Scarborough, Maine) was able to make a few one-on-one stops to keep the teams scoreless at the break.

Allcroft finally broke the scoreless stretch in the 47th minute on a chip from five yards out. The forward was able to get enough of a ball in a scrum to put it over the outstretched glove of Dolloff and into the top right corner.

Just six minutes later, Allcroft had another opportunity but with fewer defenders to beat. A foul on the goal line gave Gordon a penalty stroke and Allcroft was able to go high again for the 2-0 lead.

The Eagles answered back in the 58th minute when Mikayla Toth (Skowhegan, Maine) was able to push a loose ball under Hicks.

Both teams put up 17 shots on the evening, but Gordon edged Husson in shots on target, 12-8. The Eagles pressured the Scots with 14 penalty corners, but did not convert one.

Dolloff made 10 saves for the Eagles, while Hicks stopped six shots.

Tough games await both squads as Husson takes on #10 Wellesley tomorrow afternoon, while Gordon travels to MIT on Tuesday.

SPRINGFIELD, Mass. - Springfield (Mass.) defeated Husson 3-0 on Saturday afternoon at Stagg Field. The Eagles fall to 0-2 all-time against the Pride, with both matches coming away from Winkin Sports Complex.

Husson (1-4) controlled much of the play early on in the half, maintaining much of the possession in the Pride's defensive third. However, Springfield (3-0) finally broke through for the game's first goal with 6:25 left in the half as Maggie Kennedy backhanded home a shot off an Amanda Nusbaum rebound to put the hosts ahead.

Gill added to the Pride's lead just 4:22 in the second half, buring a shot from five yards out off a defelected Nusbaum shot.

Timarie Villa needed to make just four saves in goal to earn the shutout victory.
