Duplissie Scores Twice as Terriers Down Presque-Isle

WATERVILLE, ME- The Thomas Terriers (9-2-2, 5-0-1 NAC) defeated University of Maine-Presque Isle (6-8) in a non-conference men's soccer contest Saturday afternoon. Dakota Duplissie (Hampden, Maine) had two goals in the later stages of the game to seal the victory for the home team.

Sebastion Wiiala (Varmdo, Sweden) started off the scoring affair in the 15th minute with an unassisted goal for his first collegiate goal of his young career. The score would stand 1-0 going into halftime.

Kyle Corrigan would find the back of the twine at 47:06 off a feed from Chad Caverhall to even the score at 1-1, but only briefly as Khamisi Lightbourne (Sandy's, Bermuda) would rip a shot from 30 yards out for another Terrier tally.

An own goal on Thomas would even the score at 2-2, until Dupllisie and Joshua Phelps (Maroochydor, Australia) would team up for two goals at 76:17 and 78:36 respectively to secure the win for Thomas.

Josh Mackinnon had a game high six saves for the visitors, and Winston Trott (Pembroke, Bermuda) stopped two shots while coming into the contest at half.

The Terriers will be back on the pitch next Saturday as they host Maine Maritime at 7pm under the lights.
