| No Comments | No TrackBacks
The UMass field hockey squad completed a successful one-game weekend on Sunday with a 4-2 victory over No. 24 Maine - marking the fourth win over a top-25 opponent this season. Against the Black Bears, a balanced offensive performance that featured four different goal scorers (Lindsay Bowman, Nicole Cordero, Noralie Weusthuis and Kim Young) paced the way while freshman Brooke Sabia showed her precision passing abilities by earning a pair of assists.

With their fourth victory over a ranked opponent, UMass ties the mark for most top-25 wins in a single season since the 2004 season when opponent rankings can be tracked back to. In 2009 the Minutewomen also won four games over NFHCA-ranked teams. This season, UMass has downed No. 15 Ohio State, No. 17 Boston College and No. 18 New Hampshire in addition to the win over the Black Bears.
