HOW IT HAPPENED:
- Brooke Carson started the Huskies’ scoring tapping in an assist from sophomore Sage Drinkwater in the eighth minute. Drinkwater doubled the Husky lead in the 21st minute on a spectacular goal off of a pass from Chloe Arsenault. Arsenault received the inserted pass from Carson on a penalty corner and then lofted the ball over the defense to Drinkwater who was waiting on the far post for the tap in.
- USM led 3-0 in the 24th minute when Carson scored her second goal of the game – this time on a feed from junior Hannah Banks.

- USM wasted little time in the second regaining a three-goal lead as Samantha Ellis knocked in a goal in the 35th minute, before Carson rocketed in her third goal of the game in the 49th for a 5-1 lead following an assist from junior Mary Keef.
- Ellis rounded out the Husky scoring in the 53rd minute, collecting a rebounded save for the brace.
- USM freshman Eleanor Folsom picked up her second win of the season, making seven saves.
- The Rams Kaitlin Loughlin played well in net, making six saves.
- Each team earned a defensive save in the game. Haylee Girouard cleared a goal off the line for the Rams, while USM junior Jordan Cummings had a defensive save in the first quarter.
