Thomas Clips Lasers on Senior Day, 3-2

WATERVILLE, ME- Thomas defeated Lasell College in a North Athletic Conference (NAC) field hockey contest on Sunday, 3-2 during senior day. Brittany Premo led the team with five shots and netted in a goal in the winning effort.

The first half saw back and forth play from both teams in efforts to gain momentum. The Terriers gained a one goal advantage after a penalty corner at the 13:11 mark in the first stanza. Miranda Tinsman made a pass across the arch to Lauren Hachey who shot through traffic to beat the goalie to the right side of the cage. Thomas went into the half with a 1-0 lead despite being outshot by the Lasers, 8-5.

Lasell started the scoring just two minutes into the second half after Ashley Gleason passed to top right of the circle to Samantha Smithers to knot the game at one a piece. The Terriers would answer right back with a goal of their own when Michelle Greene gathered her own rebound to find the back of the cage and give Thomas the 2-1 lead.

With 11 minutes left in the game, Premo notched in a rebounded goal after her first shot was turned away by the Lasers goalkeeper. A minute later, Gleason picked up her second assist of the game when she found teammate Nikita Soares who netted in a goal just inside the circle to cut the Lasers deficit to one. The Terriers defense would hold off the Lasers attack to solidify the 3-2 victory.

Senior goalkeepers Sofia Sourgiadakis and Jasmine Bishop combined for ten saves on 12 shots, while counterpart Taylor Sheehan collect nine saves in the losing effort.

Thomas will await final seeding for the NAC playoffs.
