Owls Shutout Rams

PRESQUE ISLE – The Owls shut out the Unity Rams at home, and evened their record at 2-2 with a 3-0 win. 

Bethany Heald (JR, Enfield, ME) got the scoring going in the first half when she headed in a beautiful pass from Sam Nadeau (SO, St. David, ME) in the 31st minute (pictured).  The Owls would continue to put pressure on the Rams throughout the first half, outshooting their opponents ten to four.  It wasn't until the second half that they started extending their lead.  In the 52nd Jessy Dickison (SO, Houlton, ME) fired in an unassisted shot in for the second goal.  Just five minutes passed before the Owls would add to that lead, as Nadeau was able to connect on a goal of her own.  Holli Boyce (FR, Stonington, ME) was credited with the assist.  Owls keeper Allie Lopez (SO, Kingfield, ME) collected eight saves in the shutout.

"It's tough after a game like that to pick out a stand out performer," said Head Coach Trevor Parent after the game.  "In general it was better, fitness-wise it was better, possession-wise it was better.  It was good, borderline very good, but we are looking for great.  It's always good to get back to .500 after a tough couple of losses.  Psychologically it will hopefully lead us into a nice Homecoming Weekend.

The Owls will compete next on Saturday, September 19 as they host Fisher College.  The weekend's games will be a part of the annual UMPI Homecoming festivities.  The game is scheduled to start at noon.
