WATERVILLE, Maine --- Husson University remained unbeaten in North Atlantic Conference play with an 84-38 win over host Thomas College on Tuesday evening at Larry Mahaney Gymnasium.

Sarah Pepin emerged with a team-high 12 points off the bench to lead Thomas (2-11, 1-6 NAC). Katie McAllister added seven points and Ashleigh Gagne pulled down a game-high 10 rebounds. Kelly Macomber had five points, nine rebounds and three blocks.

Kenzie Worcester scored a game-high 15 points on 5-of-7 shooting for the Eagles (8-3, 6-0 NAC), who shot 47.8 percent (33-of-69) from the field, while Chandler Guerrette added 14. Maegan True pulled down a team-high eight rebounds off the bench.

Jordan Agger-Barnes gave Thomas an early 2-0 lead on a jumper at the 9:36 mark of the first quarter, but Husson responded with 26 straight points over the next six minutes and led 26-2 before a jumper by Tess McClehanan at the 3:32 mark ended the run.

The Eagles responded on their next trip down the court with a three by Miranda Drinkwater. Darla Morales added a layup to make it 31-4 before Thomas' Sarah Pepin hit one of two free throws with no time left in the quarter after being fouled on a shot at the buzzer.

Kelly Macomber accounted for five of Thomas' eight points in the second quarter, hitting a jumper at the 7:03 mark to make it 34-7 and converting an old-fashioned three-point play with 17 second remaining. Pepin added a pair of free throws and McClenahan one for the Terriers.

Husson, which led 51-13 at halftime, was able to force 15 first-half turnovers and held Thomas without a field goal for a span of six minutes, 46 seconds in the second quarter.

With the sizeable lead, Husson was able to substitute liberally and nine of the 12 players on the roster found their way into the scoring column in the first half. Kenzie Worcester finished the half with 13 points, Chandler Guerrette 11 and Rebecca Young and Victoria McIntyre had eight apiece.

The Eagles extended the lead to 70-27 after three led by six points from Anna McKenzie. Both teams emptied the bench in the fourth quarter.

All 12 Husson players and eight of nine Terriers found the scoring the column in the contest.
