After a string of three straight ties, the men’s soccer team (3-1-3, 0-1-3 NESCAC) got back to its winning ways with an emphatic 6-1 win at home over the University of Southern Maine (0-7-2). Jason Oliver ’20 opened his collegiate scoring account less than a minute into the game and Charlie Ward ’22 netted a hat-trick, scoring three goals in the first 20 minutes of the second half.
NO BLUES AGAINST THE BLUES
The field hockey team cruised to a dominant 5-0 victory at Wellesley (4-4) on Tuesday, bringing their record to 6-1 for the season.

Bowdoin held an 18-1 shot advantage, and Emma Stevens ’20 padded her stat sheet with two goals and an assist to complete the victory over the Blues.
OVER THE HUMP

Emily King ’21 dominated with 19 digs, and Caroline Flaharty ’20 added 11 of her own in addition to 10 kills.
