NEW LONDON, N.H. – The Thomas College women's soccer team fell to Colby-Sawyer College, 3-0, on the road in North Atlantic Conference (NAC) action on Saturday afternoon.

Colby-Sawyer improves to 11-2-1 overall and 8-0 in the NAC. The Chargers will conclude NAC regular season play tomorrow with a home match against UMaine-Farmington at noon. Thomas drops to 4-11 overall and 3-5 in the conference. The Terriers will remain in New Hampshire and play at New England College on Sunday afternoon.

The Chargers controlled the pace of action from the opening kickoff and scored twice in the first frame and once in the second to push their unbeaten streak to five in a row.

Amanda Martin got the scoring started for Colby-Sawyer in the 28th minute when she finished a one-timer in close off a pass from Hannah Fields.

With less than four minutes to play in the first half, Morgan Keene doubled the Colby-Sawyer lead with her third tally of the season. Leah Dupuis sent a pass to the top of the six-yard box that was volleyed by Keene into the left corner of the net.

Amanda Martin tacked on an unassisted goal 13 minutes into the second half. She traveled with possession down the left flank and took a tough angled shot past the outstretched arms of the Thomas keeper.

Goalies Sam Mitchell and Marissa Williams each played a half and did not face any shots to combine for the clean sheet for the Chargers. Thomas keeper Kayla Gordon (Wiscasset, Maine) made four saves in the effort.  Sophomore Taylor Peno (Hooksett, N.H.) also saved a goal for Thomas on a great chance by Colby-Sawyer in the first half.

The Chargers outshot Thomas 14-0 and had a 9-0 advantage in corner kicks.
