PORTLAND, Maine – The Thomas College women's lacrosse fell in a non-conference matchup to the University of Southern Maine, 20-2, on Monday afternoon at Fitzpatrick Stadium.

The win evened the Huskies overall record at 1-1 while the Terriers dropped their second straight game to fall to 0-2.

Lauren Lessard, Aliza Jordan, and Sam Campobasso combined for 12 goals and seven assists to lead the Huskies' offense.  Lessard and Jordan had seven points apiece for the Huskies while Campobasso had a team-high five goals.  Lessard matched her career high for points in a game scoring four goals and dishing off three assists.  Jordan had three goals and four assists for her seven points.

Junior Samantha Greenlaw (Windham, Maine / Windham) scored both goals for Thomas.  Rookie goalie Sydni Collier (Oakland, Maine / Messalonskee) stopped eight shots.

Southern Maine employed two goalkeepers in the game.  Hala Van Nostrand had one save in the opening half and picked up her first win while Miriam Wood played the second half and did not record a save.

Southern Maine outshot Thomas 36-5 and controlled the center circle collecting 17 of 22 draw controls.

The Huskies took a 3-0 lead in the opening 64 seconds on a goal from sophomore Alexandra Sardinha, assisted by Jordan, and two goals from Jordan.

Greenlaw got the Terriers on the board just past the two-minute mark, but that would be the only goal in the opening 30 minutes for the visitors.  The Huskies scored nine unanswered goals before the break to take a commanding 12-1 lead.
