WINSLOW, ME - Thomas College (3-2) hockey fell to Saint Joseph's College (1-1) in a non-conference contest Friday night.
The Terriers were first to find the back of the net after defending numerous shots on the home net. The initial goal was scored by Bryce Lamontagne with assists from Michael Hersom and Eric Morin with a rip from the point. The Monks retaliated however with five goals against Thomas within a five minute span.
The second period saw the home side bring it back in reach, responding with a goal scored by Tom Proux assisted by Hersom. SJC took control of the puck raising the score twice with the game standing at 7-2. The Terriers rallied together a strong offense to conclude the second period with two additional goals scored by Lamontagne with an assist from Hersom, and by Hersom with an assist from Morin and Kyle Mangin raising the score to 7-4 heading into the final stanza.
At 15:51 on the clock, Cody LeBlanc shook the Monks defensive players launching the puck into the net with an assist from Matt Letellier. Minutes later the Terriers would cut the deficit by one with Morin reinforcing the offensive line with what would be the final goal of the game assisted by Garron LaFountain.
Thomas could not even the score in the final minutes, as the Monks held the defensive zone. A penalty by the Terriers with three minutes would kill any momentum at a comeback.
Thomas will play their next game at the University of New England on Wednesday evening November 13 at 6pm.
