GORHAM, Maine – Southern Maine senior Aliza Jordan (Gorham, Maine) recording a game-high eight goals as part of 11 points to lead the host Huskies to a 19-5 Little East victory over UMass Dartmouth at Hannaford Field on Wednesday evening.
How it Happened
- Corsair senior Brooke Martel (Haverhill, Mass.) got the squad on the board with 3:16 dissolved into the affair by taking the feed from junior Sam Muir (Sturbridge, Mass.) to split the difference (2-1 USM).
- Southern Maine went on a 7-0 run featuring three by Jordan (9-1). UMass Dartmouth junior Joria Todd (Upton, Mass.) stopped the host momentum with a solo score (9-2) ahead of an unassisted marker by freshman Isabella Mancini (Bellingham, Mass.) to bookend the Huskies' man-up goal (10-3).
- Jordan then picked up five points on the host's next six scores through the 21:12 mark of the second half (16-3). Muir and Martel then each found the net six minutes apart around Husky freshman Taylor Rinaldi's (Freeport, Maine) first score of the game (17-5). Jordan connected for another pair of goals before the final horn (19-5).
Inside the Numbers
- Muir has scored a goal in every game this season thus far.
- UMass Dartmouth caused 11 turnovers to the Huskies' nine.
- The hosts held the slight edge on ground ball chances, 22-19. Mancini scooped up a game-high seven.
- Splitting the load in the Southern Maine net was senior Hala Van Nostrand (Granby, Conn.) and sophomore Mariah Vaillancourt (Lewiston, Maine), who combined for six saves.
