Late Goal Puts Monks Past Mariners

Bangor, MAINE – In the final day of the Ninth Annual Husson Classic Saint Joseph's College remains undefeated in the tournament beating Maine Maritime 1-0 Sunday afternoon at Boucher Field.

MMA fell to 0-2 on the season while Saint Joseph's is now 2-0.

The two teams played fairly even as both teams had scoring chances in the first 82 minutes of play. Mariners goalkeeper Taylor O'Malley (7 saves) was strong in net never hesitating to come out of the box to squash any Monk pressure. 

However in the 83rd minute Desiree Parent found Lauren Chouinard for a one-on-one breakaway to give Saint Joseph's a 1-0 lead. 

Maine Maritime had a last second chance with a corner kick in the final 30 seconds of the game, but the opportunity went unused.

The Mariners return to action Friday against UMPI in the Thomas Invitational.
