YARMOUTH – Andrea Beaulieu scored two second-half goals to help York rally past Greely for a 3-2 victory in a Western Maine Conference field hockey game Thursday night.

Beaulieu’s first goal made it 1-1 after 12 minutes of the second half. Her second goal made it 3-1.

The Wildcats (7-1) scored three times in 10 minutes to erase a 1-0 deficit.

The first goal came after Beaulieu snuck behind the defense for an uncontested shot that beat goalie Emma Seymour.

“When I got the first goal I thought ‘Oh my gosh, please don’t leave it at this. I don’t want to go into overtime’ because I was so scared,” Beaulieu said.

Nine minutes later, Cari Posternak gave York its first lead. She followed up on her own attempt with a rebound goal.

A minute later, Beaulieu made it 3-1, pouncing on a loose ball.

Freyja Victory scored 21/2 minutes later to bring the Rangers (4-3) within 3-2.

“When they got their second goal I was petrified,” said Beaulieu.

“(A game like this) builds us up and makes us so much stronger. It makes us more intense in future games. It really does help when you have a hard team because that’s just how you’ll play from now on after that because you learn from it.”

Beaulieu’s two goals doubled her season total and took some pressure off Posternak and Taylor Simpson, who have scored most of the Wildcats’ goals.

“It’s good to see (Beaulieu) have some success because she’s struggled a little bit early on in the season, not in terms of effort by any means but just the results,” said York Coach Barb Marois. “So it was nice to see her have the opportunity to put some important goals in for us.”

Greely led 1-0 after 10 minutes. A long pass from the defense found Julie Maine, who broke in alone on York goaltender Amanda Kasbohm.

Despite regular pressure by York, a combination of defense and the goalkeeping of Seymour allowed Greely to hold its lead for the rest of the half.

“Our girls definitely played a great game,” said Greely Coach Kristina Lane-Prescott. “York and Falmouth every year are always the top teams and we always contend with them.

“I feel strong that we are a top-three team. Fryeburg (6-1) definitely is up there with all those wins but I think it’s going to be interesting come (the Western Class B) playoffs.”
