Southern Maine Shuts Out Bridgewater State 4-0

GORHAM, Maine – Four different players scored a goal as the University of Southern Maine Huskies earned a 4-0 shutout win over the Bridgewater State University Bears in a Little East Conference field hockey game Saturday afternoon at Hannaford Field.

With the win, Southern Maine bounces back from a mid-week loss to improve to 3-2 overall and starts its 2015 Little East Conference season with a 1-0 mark. The loss is the second straight for the Bears who dips to 2-2 overall and 0-1 in the conference.

The Huskies struck early taking a 1-0 advantage in the fifth minute and never looked back en route to a 3-0 lead at the half. Huskies' junior Jennifer Poulin (Winslow, Maine) recorded the first goal of the game redirecting a centering pass from senior Allison Ward (Rockland, Maine/Oceanside). Junior Michaela Demers (Manchester, N.H./Manchester) doubled the Huskies' advantage 15 minutes later notching her first goal of the season in the 20th off of a feed from sophomore Tayla Smedberg (Oxford, Maine/Oxford Hills). USM made it 3-0 just 55 second before the halftime break when sophomore Katelyn Tucker (Gray, Maine/Windham) collected a loose ball in the circle and poked it home for her first goal in a Huskies' uniform.

Bridgewater State controlled the pace of play in the opening 10 minutes of the second half forcing USM junior goalkeeper Amanda Kasbohm (York, Maine) to make several tough saves. BSU sophomore Tori O'Dea (South Dennis, Mass./Dennis-Yarmouth Regional) had a pair of strong attempts early in the half, but was denied by Kasbohm.

Southern Maine regained control and nearly had its fourth goal on a bid from Ward in the 45th minute, but Bears sophomore Janet Maher (Mansfield, Mass.) made the first of her two defensive saves in the game to keep it at 3-0. The Huskies kept the pressure on BSU and finally broke through for their fourth goal of the game in the 52nd minute as sophomore Kaylie Andrews (Kittery, Maine/Traip Academy) collected a loose ball off of her own initial shot to give her team a 4-0 lead.

BSU freshman Allison Chappell (Raynham, Mass./Bridgewater-Raynham) made three saves in the loss, while Maher finished with two defensive saves. Kasbohm earned her second shut out of the season and fourth of her career making eight saves.

Eastern Connecticut Fights Off Southern Maine 5-3

MANSFIELD, CONN. – Sophomore Maddie Larusso (Enfield, Conn.) made nine saves and five different players scored goals to lead the Eastern Connecticut State University Warriors to a 5-3 win over the University of Southern Maine Huskies in a Little East Conference field hockey game Saturday afternoon.
With the win, Eastern Connecticut halts a two-game slide to improve to 3-2 overall and 1-1 in the Little East. Southern Maine stands at 4-4 overall and 1-1 in the conference.

The Warriors scored early and took a 2-0 lead less than 10 minutes into the game to establish control. Senior Laura Chicorka (Enfield, Conn./Enrico Fermi) converted a penalty corner in the second minute for ECSU's first goal of the game and then found junior Paige Schneider (East Lyme, Conn.) in the 10th minute. Southern Maine's sophomore Aleia Ansin (Windham, Maine) answered for the Huskies in the 19th minute with her first goal of the season trimming USM's deficit to 2-1, but senior Hannah Keiser (Danbury, Conn.) scored the Warriors third goal of the half off of another Chicorka assist in the 25th minute returning it two-goal margin. The score remained 3-1 in favor of Eastern Connecticut through the half.

In the second half, ECSU's senior Brianna Passero (Trumbull, Conn.) became the Warriors' fourth goal scorer of the game less than two minutes into the half making it 4-1 in the 47th minute before the Huskies' jumped into action. Trailing by three goals heading into the final 15 minutes of play, sophomore Kaylie Andrews (Kittery, Maine/Traip Academy) scored back-to-back goals to pull her team to within striking distance. Andrews blasted in an unassisted goal in the 56th minute and then redirected a pass from senior Jessica Boghosian (Belgrade, Maine/Messalonskee) in the 62nd minute, making it a one-goal, 4-3, game with eight minutes left in regulation. The Warriors responded to the Huskies' push, however, and closed the door on any comeback attempts sealing the game with a goal from sophomore Alex Kallgren (Dudley, Mass./Shepherd Hill) in the 66th minute for the 5-3 final.

Larusso earned her first win of the season making nine saves on 12 shots on goal. USM junior Amanda Kasbhom (York, Maine) took the loss making nine save on 14 shots on goal. Eastern Connecticut had a slim 20-14 margin in shots and a 14-9 lead in penalty corners.

Dumond Leads St. Joseph’s Past Southern Maine 2-1

GORHAM, Maine – Junior Kelsey Dumond (Lewiston, Maine) scored a goal in each half to lead the St. Joseph's College (Maine) Monks to a 2-1 win over the University of Southern Maine Huskies in a non-conference field hockey game Tuesday afternoon at Hannaford Field.
With the win, the Monks extend their winning streak to four games and improve to 4-1 overall. St. Joseph's has not lost since dropping its season-opener 3-2 to Husson University. Southern Maine drops its second straight game to fall to 4-5.

Dumond scored the first goal of the game in the 22nd minute to putting the Monks ahead 1-0. After receiving a pass from senior Meghan Williams (Greenland, N.H./St. Thomas Aquinas), Dumon launched a hard and high driven shot that ricocheted off of the padded hand of Southern Maine junior goalie Amanda Kasbohm (York, Maine). The Monks' lead was short-lived, however, as the Huskies surged back to tie the game in the 25th minute. Huskies' senior captain Allison Ward (Rockland, Maine/Oceanside) laced in her fourth goal of the season after receiving an insertion pass from sophomore Kaitlin Hilton (Saco, Maine/Thornton Academy) on a penalty corner to send both teams into the break tied at one goal each.

In the second half, the game seemed destined for overtime with the score locked at one all in the 64th minute. The Monks, however, benefitted from a series of four penalty corners before Dumond connected on her second goal of the game and eighth of the season in the 66th minute. Dumond's game-winner was an unassisted tally as she collected a rebounded ball in front of the cage.

The game was evenly played between the two local rivals with St. Joseph's holding a slim 11-10 advantage in shots and an 11-9 edge in penalty corners. Kasbohm finished the game making seven saves in the loss. Huskies' sophomore Tayla Smedberg (Oxford, Maine/Oxford Hills) made a defensive save. St. Joseph's freshman Megan Baker (Gorham, Maine) played strong in net making three saves and several key plays. Senior Chelsea Bordeau (Rumford, Maine/Mountain Valley) had a defensive save for the Monks.

Southern Maine returns to Little East Conference action on Saturday (3:30 p.m.) when it travels to Westfield State. St. Joseph's travels to Salem State on Thursday (6:00 p.m.) for a non-conference game.

Southern Maine Falls 1-0 in Overtime to Westfield State University

WESTFIELD, Mass. – Junior Holly Brouillette (Burlington, Mass.) converted an assist from senior Emily Williams (Deerfield, Mass./Frontier Regional) less than two minutes into the overtime period to lift the Westfield State University Owls to a 1-0 win over the University of Southern Maine Huskies in a Little East Conference field hockey game Saturday afternoon.
With the win, the Owls improve to 4-3 overall and 2-1 in the Little East Conference. Playing in their third overtime game of the season and third in their last four games, the Huskies fall to 4-6 overall and 1-2 in the Little East.

With the score at 0-0 at the end of regulation, Westfield State wasted little time stealing the victory as Brouillette found the back of the cage in the 72nd minute. The goal is Brouillette's team-leading ninth of the season and her third game-winning goal of 2015.

Southern Maine junior goalkeeper Amanda Kasbohm (York, Maine) made four saves in the loss.
