THE LEAD

Senior Kayla Veilleux (Sabattus, Maine) and junior Libby Pomerleau (Limerick, Maine) both scored in a defensive struggle to lift the Monks past the Beavers and extend their team's winning streak to eight games.

Saint Joseph's senior Megan Baker (Gorham, Maine) made five saves in the victory while UMF netminder Grace DiMarco totaled four saves in the losing effort.
