Thomas Defeated by UMF, 2-1

FARMINGTON, ME – Thomas could not hold on to a 1-0 lead as they were defeated by University of Maine at Farmington 2-1 on Tuesday afternoon in a North Atlantic Conference (NAC) field hockey tilt.

With the loss, the Terriers fell to 5-7 overall on the year, and 2-4 in conference games.

Thomas' Lauren Hachey put the Terriers up 1-0 with 1:54 remaining in the opening frame, coolly finishing a penalty corner shot off an insertion by Brittany Premo.

The Beavers knotted the game at 1-1 just 3:49 into the second half, when sophomore Rebecca Young tapped home a ball that was pin-balling around a crowd of players in front of the goal.

Kashley Weymouth got hold of a loose ball in front of the goal, and slipped a shot around a crowd and just inside the left post for the game winner at 6:22 for the Beavers.

UMaine-Farmington outshot Thomas 28-8 over the course of the match, and did not allow the Terriers to take an attempt at goal during the second half. The Beavers also had a 17-9 advantage in penalty corner opportunities, including a 7-2 margin in the second half.

Curran Brierley registered three saves over 70 minutes in the Farmington goal to record the win, while Terrier goalie Sofia Sourgiadakis charted 12 saves in the Thomas cage.

Thomas will host Simmons University in a NAC contest on Saturday, Oct. 19, at 11am a part of Homecoming and Alumni Weekend.
