Elsa Freeman scored three goals and set up the other two as the Rams (2-3) downed the Knights (2-3) in Portland.
With Deering ahead 2-0 in the closing seconds of the first half, Freeman took a corner kick that was headed by a defender to the left side of the 6-yard box, where Mae Carroll volleyed it into the net as the horn sounded.
Freeman opened the scoring when she collected a high serve from Sophia Nieves, dribbled inside the 6-yard box and sent a low diagonal shot into the right side of the net.
Later in the first half, Freeman executed a well-placed through-ball to Grace Marino, who fired a shot from the top of the 18-yard box that goalie Lauren Cooley (three saves) tried to push over the net, but it went under the crossbar for a 2-0 Deering lead.
Noble’s Hannah Perro put in the rebound of her own shot that was stopped by Deering goalie Sophie Hill (eight saves) midway through the second half.
