Owls Lose Close Fought Battle vs UMF

Farmington, ME – The UMPI women's basketball team played their second game of the double header weekend vs University of Maine at Farmington. Bouncing back after a tough loss the Owls competed hard vs the tough North Atlantic Conference team, eventually losing 61-49.

After being down eight in the first quarter the Owls continued to fight with some hard fought defense, holding the Beavers to 13 points in the second quarter.  The game was played near even in the second half of play as the Beavers outscored the Owls by two points in the second half of play.  Despite UMPI's efforts on defense they continued to struggle on the offensive end shooting under 23% on the game. The Owls did finish the game with 21 offensive rebounds and caused 14 turnovers.

Led by Taylor Miller (Jr. Weeki Wachee, FL), finishing with a double-double in 12 points and ten rebounds. Mariah Dunbar (FY. Canaan, ME) led all UMPI scorers with 14 points and finished with six rebounds. Sarah Musselman (So. Turlock, CA) finished with eight points and seven rebounds as well.

The Owls will head home for the rest of the fall semester. They will come back early in January to play a home game vs Unity College on the 6th.
