Husson remains unbeaten in NAC play

LYNDON CENTER, Vt. — Hannah Clough and Kelsey Brangiel scored two goals each to lead Husson to a 4-1 win over Lyndon Sunday in North Atlantic Conference women's soccer action. With the victory, the Eagles improve to 4-8 overall and a perfect 4-0 in conference. The loss drops the Hornets to 2-8 overall and 0-4 in the NAC.

Clough opened the scoring 10:44 into the contest when she took a through ball from Kayleigh Piccirillo and drilled a shot into the lower left corner of the net behind Hornet goalie Dannika Dobrowski (Plainfield, Vt.). Emily Strese (Gilmanton, N.H.) tied the score at 1-1 on a penalty kick at the 32:28 mark to bring Lyndon even.

Brangiel scored what proved to be the game-winning goal early in the second half with an unassisted tally from the right wing, and Clough upped the advantage to two goals 15 minutes later with a nifty unassisted goal that saw her beat three Lyndon defenders before punching home a shot from 10 meters out.

Brangiel would close out the scoring in the contest at 71:26 by tucking a shot underneath the cross bar off an assist from Becca Jones.

Eagles' starting goalkeeper Jessica Poulin teamed with Anna Wolterbeek to make one save in the game while Dobrowski turned aside two shots in the loss. Husson outshout Lyndon 9-6 in the contest and held a 4-2 advantage in corner kicks.
