Mariners Edge Owls Again

CASTINE, Maine (10/23/11) – The last time Maine Maritime Academy took on the UMPI men's soccer team, the Mariners came away with a 2-1 overtime win.  In the rematch between the two teams, the battle again went right down to the wire.  Nate Tipton scored the game's only goal to lead MMA to a 1-0 win over Presque Isle on Sunday.

After Owls' (4-10) keeper Richard Felbaum (Sr./Saco, Maine) denied an advance, Alex Pederson headed the rebound from the right post to Tipton off to his right. Tipton finished the play for the only goal of the afternoon.  Felbaum saved 6 shots and made some great saves in helping UMPI get to halftime in a 0-0 tie.

The Mariners (8-4-3) owned a 19-12 advantage in shots, but dominated the second half 14-4.

The Owls return to action for the final time in 2011 next Sunday at UMaine-Machias.  Game time is set for 3:00pm.
