ALBANY, N.Y. – UAlbany will finish the 2013 season this week, hosting a pair of conference foes at Bob Ford Field.  The Great Danes will take on Maine on Thursday at 7 p.m. then end the year with a Sunday 1 p.m. matinee against conference newcomer UMass Lowell.

The UAlbany seniors, Dani Britt and Aubrey VanGorder, will play their last game for the Great Danes on Sunday.  Each spent the last four years with the team and will be honored during a pregame ceremony at the UMass Lowell game on the field.

The Great Danes are coming off a double overtime defeat to Vermont last Thursday.  Krista Fitzpatrick scored on a long range goal deflected off a defender to tie the game against Vermont, but in double overtime, Amanda Moschella scored at the top of net to give the Catamounts a 2-1 victory.  Fitzpatrick and Moschella each scored their first goal of the season.

In an October 18th, 2012 game which saw four goals scored in a span of two minutes, UAlbany came back from down two goals at the half to earn a 3-3 draw at Maine.  Chelsea DeVerna’s goal in the 56th minute was the equalizer in the game.  UAlbany’s last game against UMass Lowell was in the Division II ranks in 1998, with the River Hawks edging the Great Danes 2-1 in overtime.  In Division I, the Great Danes are 2-9-1 all-time vs. Maine and will play their first game against UMass Lowell.
