ORONO – Maine field hockey is ready for the postseason, and it will enter the playoffs with a mark on its back.
The Black Bears finished the regular season ranked 25th in the country in the final Penn Monto/NFHCA Coaches’ Poll, one of several representatives from America East. Maine enters the playoffs on a roll, splitting its final weekend with Vermont and New Hampshire, but as the No. 2 seed out of the East division.
Maine will play No. 3 Pacific Friday afternoon in Lowell, Massachusetts.
