Saint Joseph's Clips Husson, 2-1

BANGOR, Maine – Saint Joseph's College (3-0) defeated Husson University (0-2), 2-1, in a non-conference field hockey contest on Thursday evening.


The Monks scored just 1:59 into the game when sophomore Emma Rutledge (Alfred, Maine) found the back of the cage off an Alexandra Belaire (Greene, Maine) pass on a penalty corner play.

The 1-0 edge remained until the 28th minute, when sophomore Meghan Hill (Brookline, N.H.) scored on another SJC penalty corner. Rutledge was credited with an assist on what proved to be the game-winning tally.

Husson made things interesting when Adelle Foss scored off a corner as time wound down in the second quarter, but the 2-1 lead remained until the final buzzer as neither team was able to hit pay dirt over the closing 30 minutes.


Saint Joseph's held the lead in shots (15-2), shots on goal (9-2), and penalty corners (10-0) on the evening.


SJC junior starter Alexandria Simpson (Pascoag, R.I.) made one save and allowed a goal in the first half while sophomore Isabella Anton (Mount Vernon, N.H.) was untested in 30 minutes of relief duty. Husson keeper Kimmie Goddard turned away seven shots in the losing effort.


Saint Joseph's is now 17-20 all-time versus Husson University.


The Monks will host #14 Babson College in the team's 2019 home-opener on Saturday. The non-conference contest is set to start at 12:00 PM.
