DURHAM, N.H. - Logan Lee (Racine, Wis.) netted two goals in the final 10 minutes to propel the University of New Hampshire men's soccer team to a 3-1 victory over Maine Wednesday afternoon at Lewis Field. The Wildcats extended their unbeaten streak to six games and now stand at 10-3-2 overall and 4-1-2 in America East. The 10 victories marks the most for the 'Cats since the 1995 season.
After Maine (2-11-2, 1-7-0 AE) tied the game at 64:20 on a Daniel Florez penalty kick, Lee netted the first of his two goals at the 80:37 mark. He took a pass from Nicola Chicco (Claymont, Del.) and made a move around a Black Bear defender. He fired a shot from 10 yards out that found the far left post and crossed over the goal line.
Lee's second goal came with 3:56 to play. Tyler Jackson (Amherst, N.H.) lofted a shot from just outside the box after taking a pass from Chicco that bounced off the far right post. Lee collected the rebound and fired for his ninth goal of the season.
After a scoreless first half, UNH got on the board 5:36 into the second half off a corner kick. The kick, going left to right, went past the goal to the right side. The ball was redirected in front of the net, and Brendan Hankard (Glastonbury, Conn.) put it home. Lee assisted on the tally.
With the win, UNH remained in a tie for third in the conference, as Albany defeated Northeastern 3-2 Wednesday afternoon. The 'Cats, with 14 points, are just two points behind league-leading Vermont (5-1-1) and one point behind second-place Northeastern (5-2-0).
Mike Vignola (Hudson, N.H.) made one save for the 'Cats to pick up his 10th win. Chad Mongeon made three saves for the Black Bears.
UNH plays its final regular season game this Sunday, November 3, when it travels to Stony Brook for a 1 p.m. contest.
