FIELD HOCKEY

GORHAM, Maine — Kim­berly Brower scored the go-ahead goal with a lit­tle less than 10 min­utes re­main­ing as WestConn de­feated South­ern Maine 3-2 in a Lit­tle East Con­fer­ence clash. Carly Matasav­age and Mor­gan Matthews each scored a goal for the Colo­nials (8-4, 6-2 LEC), and Al­lie Note­ware added an as­sist. Goal­keeper Neve Man­ion made four saves to se­cure the vic­tory.

“It was an emo­tional win,” WestConn coach Dani McDon­nell said in a press re­lease. “Our early lead might have felt too com­fort­able as we let South­ern Maine grab the mo­men­tum. They are an ath­letic team, but we cap­i­tal­ized when we got the chance.”

“We came out strong to­day and scored a cou­ple of goals early, which re­lieved a lit­tle pres­sure,” WestConn coach Joe Min­ga­chos said in a press re­lease. “We knew we could not take our foot off the gas as Rhode Is­land Col­lege will play hard for 90 min­utes, no mat­ter what the score is.”
