BANGOR, Maine - The Bowdoin College men's soccer team extended their winning streak to three games with a 3-1 victory at Husson on Tuesday afternoon. The Polar Bears move above .500 this season (5-4) while the Eagles drop to 7-6 on the year.
Bowdoin took a one-goal lead at intermission thanks to consistent pressure in their offensive zone. Holding an 11-3 edge in shots in the opening period, one of those efforts deflected off the leg of Husson's Josh Bartlett and into the goal in the 24th minute.
The Polar Bears extended their lead to 2-0 just eight minutes after the break, as Nick Powell played a short corner and got the ball back. On his way towards the goal he found Nichols in front of the net for the score. Husson was able to trim the lead to 2-1 with just under five minutes to play when Justin Gavin drilled a shot from outside the box, but Bowdoin responded just moments later as Ben Denton-Schneider found Powell for an insurance tally in the 87th minute.
Dan Hicks stopped five shots for the Polar Bears while Brad Ala made eight stops in defeat for Husson. The Polar Bears will return to action Saturday at noon at home against Trinity.
