OLD TOWN, Maine — Sophomore forward Katie Deshane recorded her third career hat trick, scoring the game-winning goal with three minutes, 45 sec-onds to play in regulation to lift the Old Town Coyotes to a 3-2 Eastern Maine Class B school-girl soccer victory over John Bapst of Bangor Saturday.
Deshane took a feed from Sabrina Jordan inside the penalty area and slammed the ball inside the right goalpost.
Old Town improves to 5-1 while the 3-1 Crusaders suffered their first loss of the season.
The Crusaders struck first eight minutes into the game, as senior striker Morgan Chasse one-touched a fluent cross from Kate Gerow.
Deshane would tie it up for the Coyotes four minutes before intermission, scoring off a Charlotte Kenneway throw-in while she gave Old Town its first lead with 22 minutes to play in the match, breaking down the right wing after receiving a clearing pass from Jordan and curling a high, arching shot into the left post.
Chasse and the Crusaders answered back four minutes later, as Chasse scored on a breakaway with 18:54 to play to tie it back up.
Bapst had plenty of chances to regain the lead in the next 10 minutes or so, but Coyotes’ goalie Annie Cashon, a sophomore, came up with spectacular diving saves on some point-blank shots, in particular when the Crusaders tried to feed Chasse in the penalty area.
Cashon finished with 12 saves on 21 Bapst shots while Laura Jordan had three saves on 12 shots for the Crusaders.
