Mariners Blanked in Season Opener
BANGOR, Maine – Six different players scored as the University of New England's women handed Maine Maritime a 6-0 setback at the Husson Soccer Classic.
Nicole Faircloth struck 5:04 into the game to get the scoring started, but the Mariners kept it close until the latter stages of the first half. Alice Read and Morgan Humphreys scored 95 seconds apart to make it a 3-0 game heading into the half. A three-goal surge in a span of 3:53 in the second half moved the game well out of reach. Emily Lodge assisted on the first pair of the three.
Mariner's keeper, Taylor O'Malley (Middletown, R.I.) did everything she could and then some in absorbing the loss. The freshman turned away 20 UNE advances. She was under duress throughout as her squad was outshot 42-0. All eight of the game's corners were taken at her end of the field.
The Mariners will attempt to rebound tomorrow morning against Emmanuel.
