BANGOR, Maine – Husson University (3-2) edged Saint Joseph's College (1-2), 2-1 in double-overtime in a non-conference field hockey game on Wednesday night.
HOW IT HAPPENED:
Husson sophomore Sadie Royer (Greene, Maine) bookended the contest with unassisted goals in the 18th and 98th minutes, with the latter proving to be the game-winner in the sudden-victory 7v7 overtime format.
Saint Joseph's junior Megan Baker (Gorham, Maine) was spectacular in the setback, making a career-high 19 saves while receiving help from junior Kayla Veilleux (Sabattus, Maine), who posted a pair of defensive saves on the evening.
Husson senior keeper Anne Marie Provencal (Skowhegan, Maine) stopped 12 of the 13 shots she faced in the victory.
Husson posted sizeable leads in shots (32-15), shots on goal (23-13), and penalty corners (14-9) in the non-conference win.
With the loss, Saint Joseph's falls to 15-20 in the history of the series with Husson University. The Monks have now dropped three-consecutive games to the Eagles for the first time since the Royal Blue suffered four-straight setbacks spanning the 2005 and 2006 seasons.
