BANGOR, Maine – The Husson University field hockey team (10-5) defeated the Colby-Sawyer Chargers (9-8), 3-1, in the North Atlantic Conference (NAC) Semi-Final field hockey match-up at the Dr. John W. Winkin Sports Complex on Friday afternoon.

This is the fourth straight NAC Championship final for the Eagles.


The Eagles had their way in the first half and netted a 1-0 lead five minutes into the game. Taylor Shaw received a beautiful pass from Abby Dyer and put her squad up early.

16 minutes later, Mikayla Toth was the beneficiary of a penalty stroke opportunity and beat Vermont native, Abby Land, to her left-hand side.

Land played a great first half for the Chargers and kept the game as close as possible by making nine saves.

Taylor Shaw added some insurance for the #1 seeded Eagles with a goal at the 55-minute mark. Husson lead 3-0.

Colby-Sawyer was not ready to end their season. Paige Viens and Chelsea Ballard put together a quick breakaway. Ballard played the ball ahead to Viens, who did the rest of the work. The Chargers trailed 3-1 with 12 minutes left to play.

Dispite the late charge, the Eagles held off the #4 seeded Chargers for the 3-1 victory.


Husson’s Anne Marie Provencal posted seven saves in the HU victory while Abby Ladd recorded 19 stops in a losing effort for the Chargers.


The Eagles held impressive leads in shots (37-11), shots on goal (22-8), and penalty corners (17-6) in the victory.


The #1 Husson University Eagles will play the #2 University of Maine at Farmington Beavers tomorrow, Saturday, October 28, at 2:00 pm at the Dr. John W. Winkin Sports Complex.
