GORHAM — Jessica Boghosian scored with 10:11 gone in overtime to lift the University of Southern Maine past the University of New England, 2-1, in field hockey action Thursday at Hannaford Field.

Boghosian started the deciding play with the penalty corner insert to the near wing, moved in a few strides to get the pass back from Leanne Reichert, and drove a shot into the far side for the winner.

The Huskies (4-3) were out-shot by an 11-3 margin in the contest, while the disparity in corners was 13-3.

After six tries by the Nor’easters (4-2) went unsuccessful in the first half, USM got on the board with its first attempt in the 30th minute as Tayla Smedberg tipped home a hit off the stick of Michaela Demers.

UNE increased the pressure in the second period and netted the equalizer in the 44th minute when Olivia Madore sent a ball into the middle from outside the circle and Vonde Saunders redirected it into the left side.

Holly Smith did not record a save for the Nor’easters.
