BANGOR, Maine – The Husson University men's soccer team fell to Thomas College on Tuesday night in North Atlantic Conference (NAC) action at Boucher Field. The Terriers won the game 6-1.
Rai Sampson put Thomas (4-2-1, 3-0-0 NAC) on the board 2:47 into the game with assists from Tevin Reid and DJ Nicholas. The Terriers extended their lead to 4-0 going into intermission with goals from Reid (Willie Clemons) at 36:03, Reid (40:10) and Kyle Fletcher (Ibrahim Moustapher) at 44:59.
Clemons gave Thomas a 5-0 lead with an assist from London Steede-Jackson in the 52nd minute before Ian Lee took a corner kick from Shubham Bodke and buried it pass the Terrier keeper for the Eagles lone tally.
Jeffrey Nagy scored the final goal in the 78th minute.
Drew Martin made eight saves for the Terriers, while Cody Gross recorded eight for the Eagles.
The Eagles outshot the Terriers 21-20 and took the edge in corner kicks 9-5.
"Tonight was very disappointing," said head coach Gavin Penny. "It was a game of chances and unfortunately for us we didn't take ours. They are a very technical group who are clinical in front of goal. Besides the goals which came from nothing, we gave them a good go and played some good football. We must regroup and be prepared to go to work again in Vermont this weekend."
The Eagles return to action on Saturday when they travel to Johnson State for a 1:00 p.m. NAC game.
