Bergeron landed back-to-back shots on goal with UMF keeper Patty Smith (Gorham, Maine/Gorham) saving the first shot, but the second one rolled into the back of the cage.

UMF bounced back near the midway point of the second half when Emma Martineau (Greene, Maine/Leavitt) evened the score. Emmah Spahr (Winthrop, Maine/Winthrop) passed through the Terriers' defense and Martineau tapped in the shot for her second goal of the season.

Balboni's decisive goal was set up when Spahr charged at the cage and backhanded two shots on goal. After a pair of saves by Thomas goalie Abbie Charrier, the final save deflected to Delainey Kein (Unity, Maine/Mt. View), who passed to Balboni for the game-winning score.

Smith recorded a pair of saves as the UMF defense held Thomas to four total shots.

These two teams switch places on Wednesday as UMaine-Farmington travels to Thomas for a 7:00 p.m. start.

LeAnne Greenleaf (Gardiner, Maine/Gardiner) passed into the circle to Rebecca Young (Plainfield, N.H./Kimball Union Academy), who dished it off to Sarita Crandall (Farmington, Maine/Mt.

FARMINGTON, Maine – The University of Maine at Farmington field hockey team (9-4, 4-1) celebrated Senior Day with a 6-0 North Atlantic Conference shutout win over Castleton University (4-11, 1-4) on Saturday afternoon at Prescott Field.

In her final regular season game in a Beavers' uniform, Rebecca Young (Plainfield, N.H./Kimball Union Academy) started the scoring attack in the 11th minute. In the midst of a scramble in front of the cage, Sarita Crandall (Farmington, Maine/Mt. Blue) passed through the Castleton defense to Young, who lined in her fourth goal of the season.

With nearly ten minutes left in the first half, UMF caused a Castleton turnover and Emmah Spahr (Winthrop, Maine/Winthrop) came in for the steal and dribbled it all the way down field for the breakaway goal.

The Beavers tacked on another goal in the 61st minute to push their lead to 4-0. Mara Balboni (Oakland, Maine/Messalonskee) saved a pass from going out of bounds and lined a cross in front of the goal, where Talarico (Lewiston, Maine/Lewiston) was waiting and hit the one-timer for the score.

Like Young, Balboni scored a goal in her final game at Prescott Field in the 65th minute and then Andrea Stemm(Gorham, Maine/Gorham) rounded out the offensive surge with her fourth score of the season in the 68th minute.

The Beavers were on the attack for the entire game and outshot the Spartans, 31-8, and won the penalty corner battle, 13-8.

UMF goalie Patty Smith (Gorham, Maine/Gorham) recorded five saves to earn the shutout win. Castleton's Meeghan Doris blocked 19 shots in net, including 13 in the final period.

Young’s Game-Winning Goal Sends Beavers to NAC Championship

FARMINGTON, Maine -- University of Maine at Farmington field hockey (10-4) senior forward Rebecca Young (Plainfield, N.H./Kimball Union Academy) scored the decisive goal in a 2-1 win against Thomas College (8-9) in the North Atlantic Conference semifinal on Saturday afternoon.

Thomas jumped out to an early 1-0 lead when Emily Leighton scored only two minutes into the contest. Erica Blake lined a cross to her left where Leighton lined the one-timer into the back of the cage.

Leighton's goal stood until UMF got on the scoreboard in the 58th minute. UMF took advantage of a penalty corner when LeeAnne Greenleaf (Gardiner, Maine/Gardiner) passed to Lindsey Whitney (Lisbon Falls, Maine/Lisbon) at the top of the circle. Whitney drove forward and passed off to Andrea Stemm (Gorham, Maine/Gorham), who dribbled in for the score.

Approaching the five-minute mark, Young's game-winning goal came after a scramble in front of the goal. Emmah Spahr (Winthrop, Maine/Winthrop) caused a Thomas turnover near midfield and dribbled forward for the breakaway goal. After Spahr's attempted shot was saved, Young fired a shot, which hit the post, and then on the rebound her shot was saved once more. Young would not be denied and attempted one more shot that crossed the goal line for the go-ahead score.

Patty Smith (Gorham, Maine/Gorham) recorded three saves for the Beavers. Thomas keeper Abbie Charrier saved six shots for the Terriers.

UMaine-Farmington advances to the NAC Championship game for the second straight season. UMF will play the winner of the second NAC semifinal game between Husson and Colby-Sawyer on Saturday, November 7, 2015.

Husson’s Strong Second Half Ends UMF’s Championship Hopes

BANGOR, Maine – The second-seeded University of Maine at Farmington (10-5) field hockey team came up short in the 2015 North Atlantic Conference field hockey championship game with a 2-0 loss at top-seeded Husson University on Saturday afternoon.

The championship match was scoreless throughout the first half. The Beavers had their chances in the period with eight shots, including a pair that resulted in defensive saves by the Eagles, and the team also had three penalty corner opportunities.

In the final period, Taylor Shaw broke the scoreless tie for the Eagles with a goal in the 38th minute. After the Eagles were presented with a penalty corner, Shaw lined a shot into the back of the cage with the assist coming from Taylor Lovely.

Shaw added her second goal of the game about six minutes later as the Eagles used another penalty corner to their advantage. After Libby Kain fired a shot on goal that was initially saved by UMF goalie Patty Smith (Gorham, Maine/Gorham), Shaw was right there to knock in the deflection.

UMF tried to claw back into the game in the final minutes with shots from seniors Rebecca Young (Plainfield, N.H./Kimball Union Academy) and Mara Balboni (Oakland, Main/Messalonskee), but both attempts missed wide.

Smith stopped 11 shots in net for the Beavers. Anne Marie Provencal saved seven shots for the Eagles to earn the win.

UMaine-Farmington closed the book on this season with 10 wins, which is the most in the last five seasons, and advanced to the North Atlantic Conference championship for the second straight season.
