Women's soccer stumbles at Maine
Oct. 20, 2011
Orono, Maine - The Stony Brook women's soccer team slipped into an early deficit and never recovered in a 6-0 loss to Maine on Thursday.
In a rematch of last season's America East semifinal matchup, the Seawolves (4-11-1, 2-4-1 AE) were again stung by the Black Bears' (5-8-1, 2-5-0 AE) attack, which churned out three goals in each half.
Carolyne Nellis, Nikki Misener and Christine Dubuc scored within a span of nine minutes to make it 3-0 by the 34th minute. Dubuc then scored Maine's next two goals to complete the hat-trick, before Nellis added her second in the closing minutes as the Black Bears netted three second-half goals in a 10-minute span.
Dubuc finished the game with seven points (three goals and one assist), while Nellis had five points on two goals and an assist. Camille Varin-Tremblay chipped in a game-high three assists, earning a helper on each of Dubuc's goals.
Despite the loss, the Seawolves still remain alive for an America East playoff spot with one game remaining in the regular season. Stony Brook can finish as high as fifth in the conference standings with a win over Albany on Sunday and some help in other games.
The regular season finale is scheduled for 2 p.m.; prior to the match, Stony Brook will honor its seniors, who will be playing in their final match at LaValle Stadium.
