Monks Fall to Nor'easters in Opener

BIDDEFORD, Maine -- The University of New England women's soccer team received goals from five different players -- including four in the second half -- on its way to a 5-1 non-conference win over Saint Joseph's College in a mutual opener played Tuesday evening (Sept. 1) at Barbara J. Hazard Field.

Senior Kayla Hamel (Lewiston, Maine) tallied the lone goal of the first half, picking up a loose ball at the top of the box and drilling a shot into the net. Junior Devon Wolfenden (East Longmeadow, Mass.) was credited with an assist on the play in the 25th minute.

The Nor'easters took that 1-0 advantage into intermission despite leading 13-1 shots over the opening 45 minutes.

UNE doubled its lead just 3:32 into the second half. Junior Jessica Meader (Scarborough, Maine) sent a beautiful cross from the left flank into the front of the goal mouth, where senior Jackie Dickerson (Windham, N.H.) re-directed it with her body into the goal. Wolfenden started the scoring bid and was awarded a secondary assist.

The Nor'easters then scored three times over a span of 11:25 to put the match away. Sophomore Becca Murphy (Durham, N.H.) tallied in the 71st minute, junior Anna Michaud (Hampden, Maine) in the 80th, and first-year Miracle Trimble (West Bath, Maine) completed UNE's scoring with 8:25 on the clock. Rookie Taylor Usko (Sunapee, N.H.) set-up Murphy's goal, and Michaud added a helper on Trimble's.

Senior Hannah LeBlanc (Andover, Mass.) prevented the Monks from getting shut out in the final minute, converting a low shot from the top of the box just inside the left post off a pass from first-year Haley DaGraca (Saco, Maine).

Junior goalkeeper Brielle Robinson (Monson, Mass.) earned the victory with two saves over the opening 79:09 for UNE. Rookie Emily Ashman (Madison, Conn.) played the final 10:51 in goal for the Nor'easters, who finished with a 27-11 advantage in shots.

St. Joe's sophomore Brooke Troup (East Bridgewater, Mass.) stopped eight shots in 70:10 of action before giving way to senior Michelle Cunha (Enfield, Conn.), who recorded three saves.

Both teams return to action this weekend. The Monks face Newbury College (at Husson University) on Saturday at 1:30 p.m., and UNE plays at UMaine Farmington on Sunday at 2 p.m.



COURTESY OF UNE SPORTS INFORMATION



BEYOND THE BOX SCORE

With the loss, Saint Joseph's falls to 15-12-1 (.556) in opening-day contests. UNE defeated SJC, 4-1, in the Monks' 2014 season-opener (8/29).
Despite the loss, St. Joe's owns a 13-10-3 (.565) overall record versus University of New England, a side that has now defeated the Royal Blue in three-consecutive meetings dating back to the 2013 season.
For LeBlanc, the goal scored in tonight's setback is the 14th of her NCAA career, the highest total achieved by any current player.
Seven players made their collegiate debut in the opener, including senior keeper Michelle Cunha (Enfield, Conn.), who made three saves in 20 minutes of mop-up duty, and DeGraca, who led the team with four shots in the losing effort.
UP NEXT

The Monks are set to play a pair of games in the Husson University Tournament this weekend, starting with a contest versus Newbury College on Saturday. The Monks have never before played the Nighthawks, who suffered a 6-0 defeat at the hands of Emerson College in their season-opener earlier today.
Overall, Saint Joseph's owns a 22-7 (.759) record against Newbury, an institution the Monks last faced on the hardwood in 2008 when the SJC women's basketball team toppled the Nighthawks by a 101-64 margin (1/8/08). Previously, the SJC men's and women's basketball teams, the men's soccer side, and the softball and volleyball programs have played against Newbury, which featured a women's soccer program that went 4-11-1 overall and 3-5-1 in New England Collegiate Conference (NECC) a year ago.

White Lifts Monks to Victory with Double-Overtime Tally

BANGOR, Maine – The Saint Joseph's College (1-1-0) women's soccer team edged Newbury College (0-2), 2-1 in double-overtime, in the Husson University Invitational Tournament on Saturday afternoon. Senior Whitney White (Salem, N.H.) netted the game winner, an unassisted marker, in the 104th minute to provide the Monks with their first victory of the 2015 campaign.

Despite holding a 17-2 shots advantage in the opening half, the Monks faced a 1-0 deficit heading into intermission as sophomore Shannon Walsh (Massapequa, N.Y.) scored, in the 37th minute, on what was the Nighthawks' second shot of the game. Junior Nicole Kaufman (Miami, Fla.) was credited with an assist on the play.

St. Joe's continued to pour on the offensive pressure in the second half and owned a 22-2 lead in shots in the latter half. The efforts finally paid off at the 66:30 mark when junior Desiree Parent (Westborough, Mass.) netted her first goal of the year to knot the match at 1-1.

The Monks had multiple scoring chances throughout the remainder of regulation – including an opportunity by sophomore Shaina Speight (Biddeford, Maine) with 48 seconds left – but failed to capitalize.

Overall, Saint Joseph's held a daunting 50-5 shots advantage with 24 shots on goal against Newbury. Nighthawks senior keeper Elizabeth Fox (Orono, Maine) made 22 stops in the loss while SJC netminders Brooke Troup (East Bridgewater, Mass.) and Michelle Cunha (Enfield, Conn.) made a pair of stops in the winning effort.

Eagles Clip Monks, 1-0

BANGOR, Maine – Husson University (1-0-1) tipped the Saint Joseph's College (1-2-0), 1-0, in the final game of the 11th Annual Husson Classic on Sunday afternoon. Senior goalkeeper Michelle Cunha (Enfield, Conn.) made eight saves in the losing effort.

Freshman forward Alison Boulier (Bangor, Maine) scored what proved to be the game-winner at the 67:13 mark when she slipped a shot past Cunha from 15 yards out. Sophomore Myra Degree (Derby, Vt.) earned an assist on the play.

The Monks had plenty of scoring chances, but failed to capitalize in the setback. Freshman Haley DaGraca (Saco, Maine) registered two of the best opportunities, having a goal called back on an off sides infraction in the 15th minute and the first-year also ripped a shot off the crossbar in the 53rd minute.

Husson freshman keeper Kayla Gordon (Wiscasset, Maine) made three saves in the shutout performance.

The Monks are off until next Saturday when the Royal Blue begins conference play with a game at Simmons College. Kick-off is slated for 11:30 AM.

Second Half Surge Propels Beavers Past Monks, 4-2

STANDISH, Maine – University of Maine-Farmington (2-2-0) erased a two-goal deficit with four unanswered goals in the second half to defeat Saint Joseph's College (1-4-0), 4-2, in a non-conference women's soccer contest at Westerlea Way Field on Tuesday afternoon.

The Monks played well early on in what was the team's 2015 home-opener, as the hosts scored twice in a matter of five minutes midway through the first half to secure a 2-0 lead. The Beavers gained momentum late in the opening frame and the effort carried into the second stanza, when the visitors netted a pair over a four-minute span to knot the game at 2-2 with 26:28 remaining.

The stalemate score remained until the 78th minute when freshman midfielder Ashley Gleason (Scarborough, Maine) collected a bounding ball beyond the SJC defense and chipped a ball over Monks sophomore keeper Brooke Troup (East Bridgewater, Mass.), who left her post to challenge on the 1v1 play.

The Monks poured on the offensive pressure over the following 10 minutes, but the effort was for naught as junior forward Bridget Humphrey (Jefferson, Maine) effectively put the game out of reach at the 87:08 mark when she potted her second goal of the afternoon.

The Monks' goals, scored by freshman Haley DeGraca (Saco, Maine) and senior Hannah LeBlanc (Andover, Mass.), seemed to be an early indication of how the game would be played. DeGraca opened the scoring with a kick from the right side of the box that clanged off the left post and into the back of the net. LeBlanc was credited with an assist on the play and hit pay dirt herself 5:29 later. Junior Desiree Parent (Westborough, Mass.) set up the score with a perfect lead pass in the middle of the box, with LeBlanc placing a shot to the right corner to finish the quick strike.

The Beavers got on the board at the 49:54 mark when freshman forward Lydia Roy (Waterville, Maine) scored off an Ashley Gleason (Scarborough, Maine) feed, cutting the hosts' lead in half. UMF tied the game just 3:38 later when Humphrey netted an unassisted tally.

Saint Joseph's held advantages in shots (25-16) and corner kicks (7-2) while Maine-Farmington owned an 11-6 lead in shots on goal on the afternoon. Troup made seven stops in goal for the Monks while Beavers keeper Sam Hatch (Hebron, Maine) recorded a pair of saves on the afternoon.

Saint Joseph's returns to the pitch this Saturday with a home contest at 12:00 PM versus GNAC-rival Rivier University.

Monks Pick Up GNAC Win Over Raiders, 2-0

STANDISH, Maine – Saint Joseph's College (2-4-0, 1-1-0 GNAC) defeated Rivier University (2-3-0, 0-2-0 GNAC), 2-0, in a GNAC women's soccer contest at Westerlea Way Field on Saturday afternoon. Freshman forward Colleen Sheehan (Medway, Mass.) assisted on both of the Monks' goals in the victory.

St. Joe's controlled the pace of play for the better part of the conference contest, but would not find the back of the net until the 40th minute, when freshman forward Rebecca Pond (Westwood, Mass.) connected with Sheehan for her first NCAA goal.

The Raiders managed to keep the Monks off the board – and their hopes alive – until senior Hannah LeBlanc (Andover, Mass.) headed in a perfectly placed pass from Sheehan at the 87-minute mark. Streaking down the right side of the field, Sheehan found LeBlanc near the left goalpost in the box and the senior captain finished with a header into the top left corner to account for the 2-0 final.

Sophomore goalkeeper Brooke Troup (East Bridgewater, Mass.) made three stops to record her first shutout of the season while Rivier netminder Lauren Goodspeed (Merrimack, N.H.) posted five stops in the losing bid.

The Monks held a 21-8 advantage in shots with a 4-1 lead in corner kicks on the afternoon. Rivier will host Nichols College at 7:00 PM on Tuesday.

DaGraca Hat Trick Propels Monks Past Pilgrims, 6-1

STANDISH, Maine – Freshman forward Haley DaGraca (Saco, Maine) netted three goals to help lift Saint Joseph's College (3-4-0) past New England College (3-5-1), 6-1, in a non-conference women's soccer contest at Westerlea Way Field on Sunday afternoon.

With the Monks on top, 2-1, DaGraca took over the game, as the freshman phenom scored all three of her goals in a matter of five minutes and 41 seconds early in the second half.

Junior Desiree Parent (Westborough, Mass.) put the Monks on the board early with a strike off a Hannah LeBlanc (Andover, Mass.) feed just 1:40 after the opening whistle. LeBlanc netted her first of two goals on the afternoon at the 20:01 mark with sophomore Sarah Comtois (Lowell, Mass.) earning the assist.

The 2-0 cushion remained until halftime and just beyond, as the visiting Pilgrims cut their deficit in half with an Emily Gubbins (Westmoreland, N.Y.) goal in the 49th minute. Jessica Barnum (Hartland, Vt.) and Jess Dowson (Winthrop, Mass.) were both credited with assists on the tic-tac-toe strike.

DaGraca almost singlehandedly lifted the Monks to victory by scoring thrice, converting a natural hat trick starting with a marker off a Comtois helper at the 50:17 mark. The first-year standout potted her second 3:16 later off a Stacy Anuszewski (Clarksboro, N.J.) pass and capped the impressive effort with an unassisted tally at the 55:58 mark, making it a 5-1 contest.

LeBlanc closed out the victory with her fifth goal of the season in the 72nd minute. Freshman Colleen Sheehan (Medway, Mass.) was credited with an assist on the hosts' sixth goal of the afternoon.

In goal, sophomore Brooke Troup (East Bridgewater, Mass.) earned the victory after making three saves in 62:09 of play. Senior Michelle Cunha (Enfield, Conn.) made a pair of stops in 27:51 of shutout relief. New England freshman keeper Kayla Pugliese (Mamaroneck, N.Y.) made three saves before being lifted in the 62nd minute in favor of sophomore Katelynn Brewster (Stillwater, N.Y.), who made two stops in 28:16 of relief.

Despite the lopsided score, Saint Joseph's held only slim leads in both shots (15-14) and corners (3-2) on the afternoon.

Saint Joseph's will host University of Southern Maine Wednesday at 4:00 PM while New England College travels to Southern Vermont for a 4:00 PM non-conference contest on Tuesday.



BEYOND THE BOX:

With the win, Saint Joseph's remains undefeated (4-0) in the history of the series with New England College
LeBlanc's goal in the second minute of play is the Monks' earliest strike since Danielle Daigle '15 scored 23 seconds into the game versus Albertus Magnus College on September 27th, 2014
Today's scoring output is the most by St. Joe's since the Monks netted six against Rivier University on October 14th, 2013
DaGraca's three-goal performance is the first by an SJC player since Ashley Beaulieu '14 netted three in a win over Anna Maria College on September 25th, 2012
Although DaGraca's hat trick performance in 5:41 was very impressive, it is not close to the fastest three-goal effort in NCAA DIII history; this record belongs to Mallory Koula of Lawrence, who incredibly netted a trio of goals in just 42 seconds versus Beloit on October 15th, 2011 (scored at 26:36, 26:54 and 27:18)
The Monks' scoring effort today nearly matched the team's total through six games (8) this fall
UP NEXT:

Saint Joseph's is 10-15-1 all-time versus Southern Maine, including a 1-0-2 mark over the last three meetings; the Monks and Huskies dueled to a 1-1 tie in Gorham last fall, the first deadlock in the history of the series
USM is 2-3-0 this season and most recently suffered a 7-0 setback at the hands of Keene State College on Saturday
The Huskies have been shut out in each of their last two matches and have not scored a goal in nearly 220 minutes of play, dating back to a 5-0 win over Thomas on September 12th

Huskies Tip Monks, 1-0

STANDISH, Maine – University of Southern Maine (3-3-0, 0-1-0 LEC) edged Saint Joseph's College (3-5-0, 1-1-0 GNAC), 1-0, in a non-conference women's soccer contest at Westerlea Way Field on Wednesday afternoon.

The Huskies produced the only offense of the game in the sixth minute, when junior Analies Ross-Dyjak (Orono, Maine) collected a through pass in the box and beat Monks sophomore keeper Brooke Troup (East Bridgewater, Mass.), who left her post to challenge, with a shot to the bottom right corner. Freshman Sarah Michaud (Candia, N.H.) was credited with an assist on the play.

The Monks had several chances to tie the match, including a pair of opportunities by freshman forward Haley DaGraca (Saco, Maine) in the final five minutes of play, but ultimately were unable to solve USM goalkeeper Marissa Temple (Grafton, Mass.), who made six saves to record her third save of the season.

Saint Joseph's split the game in goal, as Troup posted a pair of stops in the first half and senior Michelle Cunha (Enfield, Conn.) made two saves in the second stanza.

St. Joe's held advantages in both shots (13-8) and corner kicks (6-2) in the losing effort.
