WATERVILLE, Maine –The Thomas College men's soccer team scored twice in the first 16 minutes to take a 2-1 North Atlantic Conference (NAC) Semifinal win over Husson University on an eventful stormy evening of action playing on two different fields at two different universities, after an unfortunate power outage occurred in the middle of the game. 


Thomas' MacQuille Walker took a feed from teammate Adam LaBrie and buried the opening goal of the game in the 8th minute to give the Terriers an early 1-0 lead. Justin Bell made it 2-0 in the 16th minute of the match on his fifth of the season to send Thomas into the break with the lead.

The Eagles pulled within one late in the game with nine minutes left in regulation, on a goal by Joao Passoni, but were unable to get the equalizer as the Terriers took the 2-1 win.


Jonathan Dutka picked up the win for Thomas, stopping three shots on goal. Kyle Townsend made two stops in the loss for the Eagles.


After grabbing the Husson men's soccer program's 500th win defeating UMaine-Farmington in the NAC Quarterfinals, the Eagles conclude their 2018 season with an overall record of 8-9-3 in the NAC Semifinals.
