ORONO – Caitlin Quinn netted the game-winning goal in double overtime to give Fairfield the 2-1 advantage over Maine in college field hockey action Tuesday afternoon.

Quinn picked up the ball from Emily Janis and scored on an odd-man rush to the net. Courtney O’Connor tallied the first Fairfield (1-1) goal off a penalty corner. Elizabeth Thomas made 12 saves to preserve the win.

While Maine out-shot Fairfield 24-11, they could only slip one past Thomas, when Nicole Emery scored on a pass from Amy Zdrojesky in the first half of the contest.
