Defense Solid Again as Owls Move to 2-0

Unity, ME 9/5/11 -- The University of Maine-Presque Isle women's soccer team has played two games this season and still has yet to give up a goal. On Monday it was Unity College getting the "bagel-treatment" as UMPI blanked the Rams, 3-0. Owls' forward Desiree Smith (Sr./Thomaston, ME)capped a big weekend of scoring with a goal in the contest. Smith recorded three scores in UMPI's 9-0 romp of Vermont Tech on Sunday.

However defense has been the early story for the Owls as they only allowed 7 shots by the Rams, of which only 2 required saves.

"Yeah we got some good defenders back there," UMPI head coach Dan Williams said, "they don't like to lose."

UMPI will open its home schedule next weekend when they host Maine Maritime Academy on Saturday, September 10 at 1:00pm.
