Green Mountain Defeats Maine Farmington

April 8th, 2011 (Poultney, Vt.) Netminder Kelsy Allan (Jupiter, Fla.) tallied 13 saves, helping the Green Mountain Eagles notch a 12-9 victory over Maine Farmington in North Atlantic Conference women's lacrosse action Friday afternoon.

Green Mountain runs their record to 4-3 (2-2) on the season while UMF falls to 1-5 (0-2).

In an evenly played opening 15 minutes, the sides traded goals until senior Amanda Malkin (Highland Lakes, N.J.) started a 4-0 run with her first of a team-high four goals at the 11:43 mark. Trailing 8-3, Farmington's Alyssa Neptune (Readfield, Maine) notched her only marker of the afternoon with 2:33 left in the half to pull the Beavers within four.

Freshman Johanna Douglas (Essex, Conn.) answered with her third of the afternoon just 30 seconds later to restore the Eagles' advantage. UMF, however, gained momentum heading into the halftime interval when Corrine Vierkant (Stow, Mass.) took a feed from Abbey Gilbert (Wilton, Maine) and shoveled it past Allan as time expired, closing the gap to 9-5.

Green Mountain got on the board first after the break through Amanda Posey (Columbus, Ga.) on a free-position shot before the Beavers battled back with three-straight markers, drawing to with two (10-8). The visitors couldn't close the gap as Posey popped up with her second of the afternoon at the 8:08 mark. Emma Morrison (Saco, Maine) nabbed one more for UMF before Malkin closed out the scoring with nine seconds remaining.

The Eagles outshot Farmington 36-28 on the afternoon, forcing UMF goalkeeper Hannah Goodenow (Freeport, Maine) in 13 saves.

Green Mountain returns to NAC play Sunday at noon when they host Husson University.
