The loss drops the Owls to 4-3 on the season.

The UMPI men came out strong in this match creating a number of early scoring opportunities on long throws by Seth Cote (Fr./Otis, ME) and corner kicks but could not put one by the Paul Smith's defense. 

The Owls had an early goal called back on an offisides call and just missed a number or other good scoring chances. 

Paul Smith did a nice job counter attacking on UMPI's turnovers and took adavantage of their opportunities to take a 2-0 halftime lead. 

The game was very physical with 5 UMPI starters on the bench with injuries by the end of the second half.  The Owls received some quality minutes from the bench late in the contest but could not recover from the early missed opportunities.

Presque Isle will look to return to win column on Wednesday of this week when they travel to UMaine-Fort Kent for a 3pm match.
