BIDDEFORD, Maine - In a match where five different keepers saw playing time, the University of New England (2-3-1) took down Husson women's soccer, 8-1, at Blue Storm Stadium on Tuesday night.
Caroline Wilson put UNE on the board in the first ninety seconds of the game. The Eagles (1-5-0) were able to hold the Nor'easters to the single goal until the 30th minute when Wilson struck again, 2-0. Both of her goals were assisted by Katie Beaudoin.
Nor'easter Vanessa Hodge began crashing the net, slipping in a hat track before the first half closed out to give UNE the 5-0 advantage.
In the 84th minute, Husson was awarded a free kick just outside the box on a UNE handball. Mackenzie St. Pierre converted this opportunity into a goal for her first collegiate point while helping the Eagles get on the board before the match concluded.
