WESTERN NE W EN GLAND 1

BIDDEFORD — The University of New England scored three first-half goals while holding Western New England University shotless before halftime on the way to a 4-1 CCC field hockey victory on Saturday at the Big Blue Turf.

UNE (5-2, 2-0 CCC) has now defeated the Golden Bears (3-2, 0-1 CCC) in each of the 13 all-time meetings.

It took the Nor’easters a little more than 15 minutes to get on the scoreboard, as Desirae LeBlanc carried possession into the circle and pushed it forward to Vonde Saunders, who curled and placed a shot into the corner.

Nicole Matarozzo put one in from the left side 57 seconds later off a feed from Brooke Marshall on a penalty corner play near the top of the arc.

The hosts increased the margin to 3-0 with less than a minute left in the first half when Matarozzo slipped a leading pass around the last defender to Abbey Rouillard in the circle for a drive into the cage.

Matarozzo netted another goal in the 51st minute, making a 30-yard run past the back line and around the goalie to guide it into the net.

Western New England broke up the shutout bid with less than seven minutes remaining as Emily Antinozzi moved up the right side on a break and drilled a shot just inside the near post from the edge of the circle.
