LEWISTON, ME – The Thomas College women's soccer team dropped a 6-1 non-conference match at Bates on Thursday afternoon.

The Bobcats netted two quick goals in the 6th and 9th minute to jump out to an early 2-0 lead.  Hannah Graves scored the first goal as she settled a crossing pass from Sarah DiPillo and beat Leary inside the far post.  Erin Shea scored the second goal of the game on a feed from Graves.  The Terriers responded in the 10th minute as Kayla Bess (Madison, Maine / Madison) notched her team-high sixth goal of the season from Julia Smith (Durham, Maine / Freeport).  Graves added her second of the game in the 14th to finish the scoring for the half at 3-1 in favor of Bates.

DiPillo chipped in a goal in the 51st, Graves completed the hat trick in the 62nd, and Laura Jarry scored the final goal to end the game at 6-1.  Bates outshot Thomas 51-2 and held a 5-0 advantage in corners.
