BUZZARDS BAY, Mass. -- Sophomore Daria McKenna had three goals, but Coast Guard fell to Mass. Maritime 10-7.

The host Buccaneers (2-1) snapped a 3-3 tie with three goals, including a pair off the stick of sophomore Stephanie Hunt , in the final 1:28 of the opening half to take a 6-3 advantage at the break, and markers by Murphy, senior Shavonne Boyle and junior Stephanie O'Connor in the first 14:15 after intermission capped a six-goal run that gave the host a 9-3 cushion.  Sophomore Daria McKenna keyed a four-goal run by the visiting Bears (1-5) over a 6:21 stretch with a hat trick of her own that sliced Coast Guard's deficit to 9-7 with 7:25 to play, but freshman Erica Overstreet's second tally of the night with 4:15 remaining ended the visitors' run and sealed the Buccaneer triumph.

Hunt and Overstreet each finished with two goals and an assist for three points in the win for Massachusetts Maritime, which also received a marker and helper each from Boyle and junior Dahlia Seggelin. Junior Ashley Solari (Sandwich, Mass.) added two assists for the Buccaneers, who also received a helper off the stick of freshman Meghan Doherty to avenge a setback suffered to Coast Guard in the first meeting between the schools last spring.
