University of Maine-Presque Isle OWLS

|About the Owls||
The Owls got their season off to a victorious start last weekend with a 7-2 win at Vermont Tech. It was the first game of the season for both teams and the result gave new UMPI head coach Trevor Parent his first win.
Lainey Herring (Sr./Houlton, ME) scored three times to lead UMPI.
The Owls will play Thursday, Saturday, and Sunday this weekend including their first of only four home contests this season on Sunday when UMaine-Augusta being in town. With matches in Presque Isle being a rare commodity this season, the Owls will need to take advantage of the ones they do have.
Before they can worry about that though, they'll have to focus on one game at a time, starting with the Tommies of St. Thomas tonight in Canada. With Herring leading the scoring brigade and experience between the posts in goalkeeper Taylor Ussery (Sr./La Verne, CA) expect the Owls to be able to focus on one game at a time.
