Bates College women hang on to top No. 9 Amherst

LEWISTON — A quick start and a stellar effort in the cage from keeper Hannah Jeffrey helped Bates College fight off Amherst College for an 8-7 win at Garcelon Field on Saturday.

The win keeps Bates (5-0) unblemished on the season. The loss is Amherst's first in two games.

Bates got off to a quick start in the first half. Kaileigh Maguire put the Bobcats ahead 1-0 at the 28:37 mark. Maguire then assisted a scoring strike by Emma Brinkman two minutes later to give Bates a 2-0 lead.

Thomas College lacrosse teams find stability
Coaching carousel keeps spinning, but Terriers stay the course.

WATERVILLE — When Thomas College women’s lacrosse head coach Jennifer Nardi decided to step down for personal reasons in January before coaching a game at the school, co-captains Erin Nelligan and Crystal Leavitt remained calm faces of the program’s uncertain future.

The players liked Nardi, who had replaced Sarah Merrill, and were optimistic about the upcoming season with her at the helm, even though they were losing much of the core that had led them to three consecutive North Atlantic Conference finals. Nelligan and Leavitt, both seniors and four-year Terriers, were confident their young team would be ready for the season, which was a little over a month away.

Women's college lacrosse: Lessard lives large for USM

LEWISTON — Lauren Lessard may not be the biggest lacrosse player on the field, but the Lewiston native certainly has a sizable presence for her University of Southern Maine Huskies.

The junior captain, who measures up at a mighty 4-foot-11, is a key player at both ends of the field and an important leader on and off it. She's among the team's leading scorers and one of its most vocal veterans.

When her Huskies trailed Bates Tuesday at Garcelon Field, it was Lessard trying to keep her USM teammates fired up. Bates went on to beat USM 17-5.
