Chargers Defeat Mariners on Homecoming

CASTINE, Maine – Maine Maritime Academy women's soccer fell to Colby-Sawyer College 2-0, in the North Atlantic Conference (NAC) opener for both teams on Saturday night on Ritchie Field.

The Mariners received their best scoring chance of the evening, when Susana DeFrank's (Temecula, Calif.) shot hit the crossbar, just missing the goal.

The Chargers picked up the first goal of the game in the 54th minute, when Molly MacLure scored on a pass from teammate Amanda Martin.

Less than 10 minutes later the Chargers struck again, adding an insurance goal, this time Martin picked up a goal of her own to make it 2-0.

The Mariners continued to battle but could not find the back of the net. 

Emily Conway (Charleston, S.C.) recorded three saves in the loss, while Colby-Sawyer's Sam Mitchell tallied four stops in the victory.

The Mariners fall to 1-5 overall and 0-1 in the NAC, while the Chargers improve to 3-1 overall and 1-0 in conference play. Maine Maritime returns to action on Tuesday night when they host in-state conference rival Thomas College at 6:30 pm.
