Green Mountain Falls Again to Maine Farmington

April 17th, 2010 (Poultney, VT) For the second time this season, the University of Maine Farmington Beavers dealt the Green Mountain College Eagles a North Atlantic Conference defeat in women's lacrosse. Farmington, paced by five goals from Jessica Allen (Mexico, ME), grabbed an early lead and held on to capture a crucial 13-10 victory Saturday afternoon.

Joining Allen on the score sheet was sophomore Amie Daniels (Lewsiton, ME) with four markers and an assist. Net minder Ashley Wentworth (North Berwick, ME) turned away ten shots to preserve the win for the Beavers who improve to 4-3 on the season and 3-1 in conference play.

Junior Amanda Malkin (Barrylakes, NJ) did the bulk of the damage offensively for the Eagles notching five goals including four in the second half to pull the home side back into the contest. Bryanna Astor (Milltown, NJ) added three goals, three ground balls, and two draw controls in the losing effort. Kelsy Allan (Jupiter, FL) stopped 11 shots between the pipes for the Eagles who fall to 4-6 (1-4, NAC) on the season.

After trading goals through the opening ten minutes, the Beavers grabbed control, reeling off six unanswered markers and eight of the final nine goals on the first half, carrying a commanding 10-5 advantage into the halftime interval. Daniels and Allen combined for five straight in an eight minute span to spur the run. Astor drew one back for the home side, but Allen and Alyssa Neptune (Readfield, ME) finished the scoring with a pair inside the final three minutes.

The Eagles charged out of the gates in the second half, grabbing three quick goals including a man-down tally from Celie Dagasse (St. Petersburg, FL) at the 25:11 mark to pull back within three (7-10). Allen answered the call for Farmington, stemming the tide with her fifth goal of the afternoon with just over 16 minute to play before a pair of quick-strikes from Malkin ran the score-line to 9-11.

The Eagles, however, couldn't close the gap as the visitors notched a pair of markers before Malkin's final goal with just 27 ticks remaining.

Farmington returns to action tomorrow when they head to Castleton State for a 12:00 pm non-conference tilt with the Spartans while the Eagles host Thomas College in their final NAC regular season contest at 11:00 am.
