CASTINE, Maine – Maine Maritime Academy women's soccer defeated Thomas College 5-1 on Tuesday night in North Atlantic Conference (NAC) action on Ritchie Field.

The Terriers capitalized on a Maine Maritime turnover in front of the net, and broke the shutout just seconds later on a goal from Nikki Bradstreet.

DeFrank added a goal of her own in the 42nd minute, her first of the season, to send the Mariners into halftime with a 3-1 lead. 

Kelsea Anair (Dresden, Maine) added her second goal of the season on a ball passed into the box by Makayla Lewis (Purcellville, Va.) in the 60th minute.

Emily Conway (Charleston, S.C.) earned the victory in net for the Mariners, while Kayla Gordon tallied seven saves in the loss for the Terriers.
