Maine Maritime Tops Thomas, 70-51, in NAC Opener

CASTINE, ME --- The Thomas College women's basketball team opened North Atlantic Conference play with a 70-51 loss at Maine Maritime Academy on Tuesday night.

Thomas (0-4, 0-1 NAC) jumped out to a 14-10 lead after the first quarter behind four points from Katie McAllister and a fast-break layup from Lexi Merrifield as the period concluded. For Merrifield, it marked a return to the lineup after an absence of nearly two seasons due to injury.

Maine Maritime (2-2, 1-0 NAC) responded with eight straight points to open the second quarter -- a run stopped at the 7:15 mark by a layup and free throw by McAllister.

McAllister, who scored Thomas' first seven points in the second quarter, was forced to shoulder much of the load offensively after Ashleigh Gagne picked up her third foul early in the frame.

MMA expanded its lead to five points at 26-21 with back-to-back buckets before Lexi Merrifield hit a pair of free throws with 2:05 to play in the half to cut the lead to
three points.

A 9-1 run by the Mariners to end the quarter sent the teams to the lockers with the hosts holding a 35-24 advantage.

Maine Maritime continued to pull away in the second half behind 39.3 percent shooting. The Mariners, who led 52-36 after three quarters, hit four of 10 three-pointers in the second half.

The Mariners pressured Thomas defensively throughout the entire game, forcing the Terriers into 24 turnovers. Maine Maritime also held a 39-26 rebounding advantage, including a 17-6 edge on the offensive boards.

McAllister, who had 11 in the first half, finished with a game-high 23 points on 7-of-18 shooting. She also pulled down a team-best seven rebounds. Kelly Macomber added eight points on 3-of-5 shooting, including a three-pointer. She also had all three of Thomas' blocks in the contest.

Kristi Willey led Maine Maritime with 17 points on 7-of-14 shooting, including 3-of-9 from three-point range, and had a game-high six steals. Alayne Felix and Megan McLean added 13 points each for the Mariners with Felix pulling down a game-high nine rebounds.

The Terriers return to the court Friday evening as they begin the first of this season's two trips to the Green Mountain State as they face Green Mountain College at 5:30 p.m. The trip concludes with a 1 p.m. Saturday afternoon clash with Castleton.

Thomas Women's Basketball Doubled Up by Castleton

CASTLETON, VT --- Thomas College was limited to just 14 second-half points, including three in the final quarter, in a 60-30 loss at Castleton University on Saturday afternoon in Glenbrook Gymnasium.

The Terriers (1-5, 1-2 NAC) were held to 21.4 percent shooting and were out-rebounded, 48-31, in the contest. The Spartans (6-1, 2-1 NAC) were especially efficient on the offensive boards where they held a 20-7 advantage.

Andrea Trudeau connected on a pair of free throws to open the second quarter and four minutes later a jumper from Amanda Beatty stretched the Castleton lead to 22-9. The teams traded baskets over the final five minutes of the period, including a layup by Katie McAllister with nine seconds left to trim the Spartan halftime lead to 28-16.

Castleton continued to hound the Terriers in the second half and outscored them 16-9 in the third quarter, getting five points from Sabo before Jade Desroches and duPont ended the period with baskets for a 44-25 advantage. The Spartans subbed liberally in the fourth quarter while outscoring Thomas by a 16-5 margin to finish with a 30-point victory.

The Terriers were led by Ashleigh Gagne, who totaled ten points, six rebounds and one block, while McAllister was limited to just three points on 1-for-9 shooting with eight turnovers. Tess McClenahan added four points, six rebounds, two assists and two steals.

Senior Ali Jones was in double figures with 11 points, four assists and two rebounds while limiting McAllister – who entered the game as Thomas' leading scorer – to 13 points below her season average.

Big Fourth Quarter Pushes Johnson State Past Thomas

WATERVILLE, Maine --- Johnson State College blew a close game wide open in the fourth quarter of a 72-48 win over Thomas College in North Atlantic Conference women's basketball play Saturday at Larry Mahaney Gymnasium. Leading 45-43 after three, the Badgers outscored the Terriers, 27-5, in the final frame en route to the victory.

Thomas (2-10, 1-5 NAC) led 16-10 after the first quarter, finishing the period on an 11-2 run. The Terriers eventually stretched the lead to 21-10 on a Kelly Macomber (West Gardiner, Maine) layup with 5:33 to play in the first half. A three-pointer by Johnson State's Amanda Bednarick cut the lead to just four at 24-20, but Thomas responded with buckets on three straight possessions to get the lead back to 10 with 1:51 to play.

The Badgers (6-7, 3-3 NAC) scored the final three baskets of the half, giving the Terriers just a four-point lead headed to the locker room.

The run continued in the third quarter as Johnson State scored the first seven points to lead 35-30 before Ashleigh Gagne (Waterville, Maine) drained a three-pointer with 6:12 left in the quarter. She would add a free throw and two more baskets over the next four minutes, helping to draw Thomas within one at the 2:17 mark.

Baskets by Sarah Voorhis and Bednarick pushed the lead back to five, but a free throw by Brenna Hutchinson (Brooklin, Maine) and a layup by Macomber gave Johnson State only a 45-43 advantage headed to the final quarter.

The Badgers took over in the final quarter, outrebounding the Terriers 16-5, including 8-0 on the offensive glass. Numerous second chances allowed Johnson State to shoot 10-for-20 from the field in the final frame alone. Thomas was limited to just 2-for-11 shooting while committing 10 turnovers and eight personal fouls to JSC's three and two.

Gagne posted game-highs with 20 points and nine rebounds to lead Thomas. Jordan Agger-Barnes (South Portland, Maine) added 12 points and five rebounds, while Tess McClenahan (Salmon, Idaho) had five five rebounds, four assists and three steals before fouling out.

Johnson State had four players in double figures, led by 15 from Amanda Bednarick off the bench. Starters Domonique Carter-Stanley and Allyson Bruckner had 12 apiece, while Nicole Menard chipped in with 11. Ashley Goddard had a team-best eight rebounds while Bruckner added seven and six steals.

The Badgers, who shot progressively better as the game went on, finished shooting 42.4 percent (28-of-66) from the field with six three-pointers while hitting 10 of 16 shots at the free throw line. The Terriers finished the game shooting 35.8 percent (19-of-53) from the field. Johnson State held a 45-35 rebounding edge and had 19 steals to Thomas' eight.

Both schools host Husson in their next outings - the Terriers at 5:30 p.m. Tuesday and the Badgers at 5:30 p.m. Friday. Thomas follows that up with a January 16 home game against UMaine-Farmington, while Johnson State hosts Maine Maritime that same afternoon.
