BOSTON – The Suffolk women's soccer team overcame a two-goal, first half deficit and then some Tuesday night as the Rams poured in six second stanza goals to take down the Buccaneers, 6-2, at Clean Harbor Stadium in their regular season finale.
SCORE: Suffolk 6, Mass. Maritime 2

HOW IT HAPPENED
Jennifer Martin and Alexandra Nagri each netted a pair of goals apiece and assisted on another to lead Suffolk past a two-goal halftime deficit and to the Rams' 10th victory of the season.
- Martin sliced the Rams 2-0 halftime deficit in half on a Nagri feed just 6:56 after intermission.
- Suffolk took the lead for good on markers from junior Paola Ortez and sophomore Madelyn Whipple in a 1:02 span just over 20 minutes later.
- Nagri added her two tallies to sandwich Martin's second goal of the night in the final 8:28 of action to cap the visitors' six goal second half outburst. The junior duo's last two markers came in a 36 second span to account for the final margin.
