Trenkamp Strikes Twice as Privateers Double-Up Thomas, 2-1
GORHAM, Maine (August 31, 2013) – The Maritime women's soccer team defeated Thomas (Maine) by the score of 2-1 on Saturday afternoon as senior Jorrie Trenkamp (Tabernacle, N.J./Seneca) scored twice in the second half to help Maritime overcome a 1-0 first-half deficit.
The Privateers took two early shots in the 3:30 of game action, but both were off target. Several minutes later, the Terriers took the early 1-0 lead as Kristi Hilton put her squad up after getting the ball past sophomore Kristen Hoar (Buffalo, N.Y./Kenmore East), playing her first career game in goal.
Through the remainder of the first period, shots ended up even at 11 apiece with the Terriers hanging on to its one-goal margin. Both Hoar and Thomas' starting goalkeeper Kate Thibodeau made six saves each through the first period. In the second half, Thomas switched things up in goal as Paige Leary took to the field.
Thomas took the first two shots of the second period, but Maritime regained possession and came back into the offensive third of the field as Trenkamp took a shot that was stopped by Leary. The Privateers retained possession and Trenkamp struck on a shot that made it past Leary to tie the game at one.
Both teams exchanged shots over the following minutes, but were unable to break the deadlock. In the 69th minute of play, Trenkamp once again took a well placed shot that made it past Leary to give Maritime its first lead of the contest at 2-1.
Maritime and Thomas continued to exchange shots but both Hoar and Leary were able to hold their own against their opponents. Thomas took one final shot with 29 seconds remaining in regulation but it was denied by Hoar as she finished the afternoon with 12 saves.
In goal for Thomas, Thibodeau ended the game with six first half saves, while it was Leary to take the loss after allowing both Maritime goals and making just two saves in the second period.
Final stats included Thomas taking 19 shots to Maritime's 16, while corner kicks were also in favor of the Terriers at a 4-1 differential.
Maritime (1-1) will now return home after splitting its pair in Southern Maine, and will look ahead to Lehman on Wednesday, September 4 under the lights at 7 p.m. on Reinhart Field. Thomas (0-2) will now host its own tournament next week in Waterville, Maine, when it hosts both Southern Maine and Maine-Presque Isle.
