Key players: Maine – C Allison Lorenz (6 goals, 4 assists), W Jamie Schofield (2 & 5), W Alicia Gilmore (3 & 2), D Christina Hedges (3 & 1), G Amy Oliver (2-2-1 record, 3.72 goals-against average, .910 save percentage); Wesleyan – C Susie Bellizzi (12 & 7), W Julia Lipinoga (9 & 9), W Heather Roberts (2 & 5), D Andrea McKnight (1 & 6), G Katie Mileno (2-2, 2.83, .875); Conn.

Outlook: Maine hasn’t played since Dec. 7 and will probably be rusty early in its game against Wesleyan today. However, Wesleyan played at Bowdoin on Friday night and could be a little fatigued. Junior Bellizzi is Wesleyan’s all-time leading scorer with 126 points. Lipinoga is one of her linemates so the Bears will have to keep a close eye on that line. Connecticut College is in its first varsity season. It will be without starting goalie Paige Holmes of Manchester and Maranacook High School. She has mononucleosis. Maine has added field hockey standout Karen Hebert to its roster.
