BRUNSWICK, Maine - The Husson University men's soccer team falls to Bowdoin, 6-1, in a non-conference action at Pickard Field on Sunday afternoon.
The Polar Bears improve to 4-2-1 on the season while the Eagles fall to 2-4-2.
- Ethan Ellsworth converted on the game's first goal in the 12th minute, putting home a penalty kick to give Bowdoin a 1-0 advantage
- Moctar Niang scored twice while Jason Oliver, Jai Kawale and Ely Spencer all found the back of the net in the first half for the Polar Bears.
- Husson's Jimmy Fitzpatrick scored the lone goal of the second half for the visitors, trimming the final advantage to 6-1.
- Stevie Van Siclen stopped one shot in 36 minutes of play for Bowdoin before giving way to Noah Safian
- Steven Paquette stopped seven shots for Husson.
- "Today was a great footballing lesson for us," said head coach Gavin Penny. "Bowdoin is a great side and we had to play them in a congested area on our schedule, which was less than ideal. With the damage being done by half time I'm proud of how the guys played in the second half, it's tough to come into a game that was already over. But we certainly learned a lot and are excited to have a go at Thomas on Tuesday night."
- Bowdoin will return to action with another non-conference game at Babson on Wednesday afternoon at 3:30 p.m.
- Husson will host in-state rival Thomas under the lights on Tuesday at 7:30 p.m.
